Description Hallan Cemi is located in Batman Province, ca. 50 km north of the city of Batman. lt is a small stratified mound situated on the west bank of the Sason Stream, a tributary of the Batman Stream, which in turn is a tributary of the Tigris River (Fig. 1 ). lt is approximately 4,3 m in height and covers an area of less than 5 ha. At least four pre-pottery building Ievels are known to exist, but only three were excavated to any meaningful degree before work at the site had to cease. A recent series of 16 accelerator dates (OxA 12298-99, 12328-41) confirm that the site was occupied for a few hundred years toward the end of the 11th millennium BP in C14 years (mid 10th millennium cal. BC).
