Abstract

The mound of Arslantepe, located in the plain of Malatya, Eastern Turkey, not far from the right bank of the Euphrates river, occupied continuously from the Chalcolithic to the Neo-Hittite age, proved to be a key site for the study of both the development of Early State organization in the regions surrounding Mesopotamia, and the formation of complex societies by the widespread interregional relations linking the Mesopotamian plains and the Syro-Anatolian regions in the 4th millennium B.C.
