Tell Halaf Grabungsprojekt

Current research

Dr. Lutz Martin

The extensive excavations by Max Freiherr von Oppenheim have brought to light a wealth of information about the culture of Tell Halaf – important foundations of research in the past decades. After 77 years it was possible to continue investigations on site by the excavation project Tell Halaf that started in 2006.
Sponsored by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), the project is carried out jointly by the Directorate General of Antiquities and Museums, Damascus and the Staatliche Museen Berlin (Vorderasiatisches Museum) in cooperation with the Martin Luther Universität Halle-Wittenberg, the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich, and the Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen.
