Despite turbulent times in Iraq, fieldwork in the westernmost part of Iraqi Kurdistan continued uninterrupted from 2013 to 2017. Hundreds of settlements from different periods were detected, among them the urban center of Bassetki. In this lecture, Professor Pfälzner discusses the process of understanding and reconstructing this Bronze Age site.
