The Ziyaret Tepe Autumn Challenge
September 23, 2012
Starting October 1, 2012, the value of your donation for the 2103 field season will be doubled!
With autumn upon us we are turning our thoughts to the 2013 campaign. This will be the final season of excavation at Ziyaret Tepe - and we have a busy schedule planned! Our objectives include:
new investigations on the palace mound
probing a major building complex inside the western city wall
excavation of an area of commoner housing
exploration of the lower levels of the administrative archive room
continued electrical resistivity survey
This is your opportunity to help support this work. Furthermore, thanks to a generous commitment from the UK, any donation made in October and November will be matched: give now and the value of your donation will be doubled! The work at Ziyaret Tepe is uncovering unique information on the ancient Assyrian empire which can be recovered in no other way. And this is the last chance!
