A16 Courtyard

A thorough-going and engaging look at the stratigraphy of courtyard - its beautiful tailored-stone flooring, and the immense escarpments that flank it - and which contain the record of subsequent millennia that overlay the space.

Federico Buccellati skillfully articulates layout and layering; he explains to Martin Sheen, who is visiting the site.

Here is where the cache of sealings that contained Tar'am-Agade's story - and proof positive of liaison between Urkesh and polities to the South (Tar'am-Agade's father was none other than Naram-Sin, one of the great rulers of the third millennium in Mesopotamia!).

Featuring              Martin Sheen
