Between 1993 and 1997, the Museum of Ancient Near East took part in archaeological excavations in the Habur region of North-East Syria. The focus of the scientific research (supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) was, among other things, the clarification of a village-type settlement structure in the early third century B.C. Research results are currently being evaluated and will subsequently be published. They enrich the present knowledge on questions of chronology and function in the Lower Habur region. Additionally, the research results of the excavation make a contribution to the reflections on the topography of the Early Bronze Age in Upper Mesopotamia.
