Excavations at the site of Tell Rijim on the west bank of the Tigris began in the 1980s as part of the Eski Mosul Dam Salvage Project Excavations. This report publishes the archaeological evidence from Middle Bronze Age layers. The volume opens with general discussion of the local topography, a history of the settlement in the area, subsistence and agriculture. The bulk of the report is taken up by discussion of the Middle Bronze Age architecture (building materials and technologies, structures and architectural features), pottery evidence (vessel forms, production technologies, decoration, dating) and small finds.
