A satellite photograph of the site of Tell Hariri, Syria. Tell Hariri is the site of the ancient city of Mari, which, at various times from c. 3000 BCE - c. 1760 BCE, controlled large portions of Northern Mesopotamia. The photograph has been labelled with the locations of the major monuments at the site that have been excavated. It is unknown when this image was taken however the state of the site suggests prior to 2012 CE as the site has suffered heavy looting since the beginning of the Syrian Civil War.
