Abstract

During the summer of 1999 members of the Upper Tigris Archaeological Research Project (UTARP) conducted archaeological excavations and surveys at two sites in the upper Tigris river region of southeastern Turkey. This article presents the results of that research. At the site of Boztepe excavations yielded four Halaf period burials, all of which contained grave goods, and an Iron Age house dated by C14 to the Assyrian Imperial period. Intensive surveys at Talavaş Tepe and Boztepe have refined the chronology and size of both sites. Although the exposures of the Halaf period are very small, these data add important insights into Halaf mortuary practices, while evidence from both Boztepe and Talavaş Tepe supplements our understanding of the upper Tigris river region during the Iron Age. /// 1999 yılı yaz aylarında Yukarı Dicle Arkeolojik Araştırma Projesi (UTARP) üyeleri Türkiye'nin güneydoǧu Anadolu bölgesinde yer alan yukarı Dicle bölgesindeki iki yerleşimde arkeolojik kazı ve yüzey araştırması yapmıştır. Bu makale bu araştırmanın sonuçlarını içermektedir. Boztepe yerleşiminde yapılan kazılar, hepsinde mezar buluntuları olan dört tane Halaf dönemi mezarını ortaya çıkarmıştır. Ayrıca C14 yöntemi ile Asur Krallık dönemine tarihlenen bir Demir Çaǧ evi de bulunmuştur. Talavaş Tepe ve Boztepe'de yapılan yoǧun araştırmalar ise, her iki yerleşimin de kronolojisini ve büyüklüklerini ortaya koymuştur. Her ne kadar, Halaf dönemine ait ortaya çıkan buluntular çok azsa da, bu bulgular Halaf ölü gömme uygulamalarıyla ilgili bilgilerimizin önemli derecede artmasına neden olmuştur. Boztepe ve Talavaş Tepe bulguları ise, Demir Çaǧda yukarı Dicle bölgesini daha iyi anlamamızı saǧlamıştır.
