First in a series, this volume examines excavation at a small outlying mound, TUV, of Tal-e Malyan, a large urban site in the Kur River basin of highland Iran.
Portions of three building levels occupied during the late fourth millennium B.C. (Banesh Phase) were discovered. The material from this excavation is relevant both to Proto-Elamite scholars and, particularly, to those investigating the development and functioning of early urban systems in the Near East.
