Tille Hoyuk was excavated between 1979 and 1990 by the British Institute of Archaeology at Ankara as part of the Turkish Lower Euphrates Rescue Project. The site revealed important remains of the Late Bronze and Iron Ages, and of the Achaemenid, and Hellenistic periods, as well as a Medieval phase . Between the 12th and 15th centuries the prehistoric mound was occupied by the fortified residence of a local chieften, and this volume contains a discussion of the methodology and stratigraphy of the excavation, followed by catalogues of the pottery, metal objects and coins.
