In the rolling plains of north-eastern Syria is the Tell Barri site, identified with the city of Kahat. The archaeological sequence brought to light in this site goes from the beginning of the third millennium up to the fourteenth century AD, without solution of continuity. This report explains the results of the seventeenth campaign by the group of the University of Florence and the “Federico Il” University of Naples. Strata from the end of the third millennium, that is known as the transition period between the Middle and the Neo-Assyrian period, were brought to the surface. In the palace of Tukulti-Ninurta II the representation room was discovered. The investigation for later periods continued with the Parthian Great Wall of Defence and the large building in the lower city.
