During the summer of 2001 members of the Upper Tigris Archaeological Research Project (UTARP) conducted a second season of archaeological excavations at the site of Kenan Tepe in Diyarkabır Province, southeastern Turkey. Kenan Tepe is a large multi-period mound located on a natural terrace on the north bank of the Tigris River about twenty kilometers west of the Tigris-Batman confluence and ten kilometers east of the modern town of Bismil, just off the Diyarkabır to Batman highway. During the course of the eight week field season, which took place between June 21st and August 24th, 2001, UTARP team members conducted various operations in seven areas of the site.
