Due to an important number of salvage projects and rescue
excavations in Northern Syria, Southern Turkey and Northern Iraq,
the archaeological records documenting Upper Mesopotamia
drastically increased these last decades. More than 300 regular or
rescue preclassical excavations have been registered in Upper
Mesopotamia so far. This Atlas of Preclassical Upper Mesopotamia is
the result of a systematic examination of the published evidence.
More than 100 collaborators have contributed to set up an
analytical repertory, summing up the available data through a
standardized file. This repertory enumerates each site and reports
topography, dimensions of the settlement, geographical location,
data on the excavations, periods of occupation (A to Z),
environmental and archaeometrical studies, material culture (72
entries), 14C samplings and bibliography. All these ancient
settlements are carefully located in new 4-colour maps. Subartu XI
includes an updated bibliography, to be considered as the
Supplement to Subartu I.
