Archaeotype Assyria

For many years, in the neighborhood of Djerablus, near the border that separates Syria and Turkey, scholars sought the whereabouts of the lost city of Til Barsip, a city celebrated in antiquity for its resistance to the Assyrian conqueror Shalmanaser III. In the dawn of the 20th century, two French archaeologists began to excavate the supposed remains of this lost city. Now, in the 21st century, we are going to continue their work. As apprentice archaeologists, we will excavate with great care the remains of the lost city, building on the findings of those before us.
