The third volume about the Euro-Syrian Excavations at Tell Beydar constitutes the progress report of the 2000 to 2002 seasons of excavations and the 2003-2004 (springtime) seasons of architectural restoration. The central acropolis is currently almost completely uncovered, revealing the early IIIb administrative centre of the ancient city of Nabada. Immediately S of the acropolis, three temples (B, C and D), workshops and storerooms are located in a specific quarter. Sounding have been initiated below the floors of the EJ III b place and Temple A, reaching official architecture from the EJ III a period. B Field has been extended, providing more private houses. Private houses were discovered as well in Field Q.A new Area of excavations (P) is scheduled to survey the E part of the city. W of temple C, a new area of excavations (M/O) reaches a quarter of the city seemingly devoted to handicraft and economical purposes.
The hellenistic building of Area a provides clues about architecture, pottery and stratigraphy of a poorly document period in Upper Mesopotamia.
In 2003 a large program of architectural restoration has been launched, having as main priority the preservation of the EJ IIIb official buildings of the central acropolis.The methods of consolidation/ restoration/ reconstruction are detailed in the volume. The hellenistic building of Area A has bee restored as well.
