Tell Halaf Grabungsprojekt


Dr. Lutz Martin

The new excavations at Tell Halaf aim at gathering more precise information about the development of the cultural history of the site. Combined with the investigations at the neighbouring Tell Fecheriye ( and a scheduled study towards the reconstruction of natural conditions in the Khabur triangle, they will contribute to a better understanding of the development of Upper Mesopotamia’s cultural history. At the same time, the project is a concrete example of Syrian-German cooperation in the field of archaeology serving the joint exploration of the roots of human civilization and thereby furthering the mutual understanding of the other’s culture.
