During the summers of 2005 and 2006, members of the Upper Tigris Archaeological Research Project (UTARP) undertook a sixth and seventh season of archaeological fieldwork at the site of Kenan Tepe in the Upper Tigris River region of southeastern Turkey. The 2005 field season took place between May 13 and July 4, 2005. The 2006 field season took place between June 1 and June 30, 2006. In archaeological terms these two seasons were perhaps our most productive and interesting seasons yet. During the 2005 season we excavated two superimposed structures, found part of a third structure and carefully sampled several outside work areas from the Ubaid period on Kenan Tepe’s high mound. In the lower town we exposed parts of several Late Chalcolithic structures and carefully sampled several work areas dating to multiple phases within the Late Chalcolithic sequence. During the summer of 2006, we conducted our second study season during which time members of the UTARP team processed and analyzed an extensive amount of material collected in previous seasons.
