Annotation

The Lower town Assyrians called the karum-trade outpost was a part of the site where traders (native and foreign) stayed, lived and conducted business. ,,The end of the lower town can be dated to 1680, then we observe a microclimate change, the environment was under water and the traffic stopped.''1
