Fourth Campaign (November 14 - December 15, 2016)
The 2016 Fall Campaign has foreseen the opening of some trenches and soundings on the main mound of the area of Tulul al Baqarat (TB1), both iin the area of the main building on top of the hill, excavated by Iraqi archaeologists in 2008-2010, and in the southern lower area of the tell. Thanks to the collaboration with ME.S.A s.r.l., the area of TB1 was recorded with a laser scanner FARO Focus 3D X330.
In Baghdad, training courses at the Iraqi-Italian Institute for Archaeological Sciences were inaugurated, with workshops and seminaries on methodology and presentation of some research projects. Training courses will resume in Spring 2017.
