Iraqi Kurdistan – survey project (Iraq)

Dates of work: 22 August – 25 October 2013
Director: Dr. Dorota Ławecka (Institute of Archaeology, University of Warsaw)
Archaeologist: Jakub Brochocki (PCMA UW bursary)

The aim of the project “Newcomers and autochthons” is a detailed analysis of the archaeological remains dated to the Late Chalcolithic and Ninevite 5 periods found during the survey conducted in the Upper Greater Zab area. The UGZAR (Upper Greater Zab Archaeological Reconnaissance) project directed by Dr. Rafał Koliński (Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań) started in the upper part of the Greater Zab valley in the fall of 2012. The “Newcomers and autochthons” project supported by the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology is kindly hosted within the limits of the UGZAR zone. I would like to express my appreciation to Dr. Rafał Koliński, head of the UGZAR Project of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, for hosting my research.
