Tell Mozan

Tell Mozan

Urkesh or Urkish, also known as Tell Mozan, is a settlement mound, located in Al-Hasakah Governorate, northeastern Syria. It was founded during the fourth millennium BC possibly by the Hurrians on a site which appears to have been inhabited previously for a few centuries. In the 23rd century BC Urkesh was an ally of the Akkadian Empire through what is believed to have been a dynastic marriage tradition.
