Survey 2005

In September 2005, a small team under the direction of Prof. Dr. Dominik Bonatz travelled to the Syrian-Turkish border-town Ras al-‘Ain to make a new topographic plan of the mound. Jens Kersten of the Technische Universität Berlin was able to install a grid of 23 points covering the whole mound. Adding about 1.400 measurements the final plan was done. A 10 x 10m excavation-grid was laid over the plan and some effort was done to identify the old soundings of the American and German excavations of the 1940s and 1950s.
