Urban life in Ancient Assyrian City: Results from Ziyaret Tepe (Turkey) In Mesopotamia ancient urbanism was split into two broad categories. The elites made up one to five percent of the population, with the non-elite covering the rest. These two groups interacted to form urban life within the community. Lynn Rainville, the speaker, believed that urban life in Ancient Assyrian cities stemmed from the ideas of Childe in the definition of a city, which we learned about earlier in class. A city must be a certain size before it is allowed to be defined as a city. Ziyaret Tepe, located in south eastern turkey was 32 hectares in size, which is well larger than the 10-15 hectares some researchers suggested as necessary. Walls would surround the city to provide protection from outside forces as well as giving the city a sense of community and security. Rainville uses the process of micro archaeology methodology to uncover some of the artifacts found within the region.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
