This map shows the two sites in Iraq - Tello (ancient Girsu), a well-known and important Sumerian site in the South, and Darband-i Rania, a previously unexplored cluster of closely related sites in the Sulaimaniya province of Iraqi Kurdistan. These two sites will provide the fieldwork venues for the duration of the scheme. It is important to understand that these two fieldwork projects are not ‘training excavations’ as such, but are fully developed, scientific excavations at which our Iraqi participants are offered instruction in the detailed techniques of field archaeology. In this respect, the results of the initial seasons at both sites have been highly encouraging
