Lecture (in German) at the 'Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften' 2012 at the Freien Universität Berlin by P.V. Bartl: Wissenstradierung zwischen Antike und Moderne - Waššukanni, die Hauptstadt der Mittani in der Syrischen Gegenwart: Der Tell Fecheriye (Syrien) – sechs Jahre syrisch-deutsche Forschungen.
When thinking about archaeological excavations in the Middel East, adventurous travels, sandy deserts and forgotten cities come to mind. But how do archaeological scientific research and fieldwork look like in reality? This exhibition aims at giving visitors a vivid idea by introducing them to a life-size model of an excavation trench from Tell Fekheriye. Visitors of all ages can learn how archaeological features and artefacts are excavated, recovered and analysed.
Due to the exhibition, Prof. Dominik Bonatz presents a lecture about the work on Tell Fakheriyah und digs into the interests of modern archaeology in Syria. The lecture starts at 8 p.m. at the Globetrotter Berlin-Steglitz (Schloßstr. 78-82). Entry fee is 5 Euro.
The small exhibition, situated at the Globetrotter Berlin-Steglitz (Schloßstr. 78-82), covers the recent research at Tell Fakheriyah as well as the archaeological profession as such. It offers a life-size trench as well as a lottery for the attentive visitors. The exhibition will be accessible only during November 2011.

Lecture at the 7th International Congress on the Archaeology of the Ancient Near East given by Bonatz, D. and Bartl, P.V.: Preliminary Report on the Excavations at Tell Fekheriye between 2005 and 2009.
The Institute of Ancient Near Eastern Archaeology at the Free University of Berlin will host an international workshop on The Archaeology of the Upper Mesopotamian Piedmont in the Second Millennium BC from 21-23 January 2010. The workshop is being held within the framework of the Cluster of Excellence Topoi - The Formation and Transformation of Space and Knowledge in Ancient Civilizations. For this meeting, our specific focus is on political governance and governed spaces. The question of how imperial systems penetrated natural and social spaces by means of administrative and institutional control will be treated paradigmatically in the Upper Mesopotamian piedmont. The workshop will bring together an international group of scholars presenting new and original research related to the archaeological sites they are presently investigating. The papers and discussion will consolidate our understanding of the archaeological data and augment them through analysis of their potential for exploring inter-cultural interactions and political changes in the second millennium BC. The focus will be on the re-evaluation of the stratigraphical sequences in relation to the development of material culture as evidence for governed spaces.
