This urban site on the edge of the steppe was occupied from about 2400 to 1900 B.C. In the earlier part of that period the ties with Mesopotamia were strongest. Later, trade with the West became more important.
The report, to which Diederik J.W. Meijer, Glenn M. Schwartz and many others have contributed, deals with habitation and funeral remains, as well as with the numerous objects made of baked clay and other finds.
