Tell Nadir

7,000-year-old village discovered in Erbil

Erbil city has more than 1,000 potential archaeological sites. The hills were once villages that were abandoned, destroyed or the inhabitants wiped out by disease. According to Erbil Directorate of Archaeology, of the 1,000 archaeological sites in Erbil, only one percent has been excavated.
At the end of 2010, archaeologist Nadir Babakir carefully looked at a hill in the Hasarok quarter, a new area on the eastern outskirts of Erbil. After some initial research, Babakir was convinced the hill was a historical site.
The government names the site Nadir, after Babakir. Under Kurdistan law, the government names archaeological sites after the person who discovers them, as a way to honour those who inform the authorities.
