The series Settlement History of Iraqi Kurdistan (SHIK) presents the results of research carried out in the Iraqi Kurdistan from 2012 through 2017. During this time, an extremely rich group of heritage monuments was registered on an area of 3058 km2 located on both banks of the Greater Zab, at the foot of the Kurdistan mountains. More than 300 archaeological sites, 4 rock reliefs, nearly 80 cultural heritage monuments (cemeteries, Christian, Muslim and Jewish architecture, industrial installations) and over 100 caves illustrate nearly 10,000 years of the region’s history, from the Neolithic period to the mid-20th century AD. The SHIK series will consist of two introductory volumes (an atlas and a volume on the project’s methodology), eight volumes presenting the dataset for settlement sites (six volumes), caves and heritage monuments (one volume each), and a volume analyzing the development of the settlement during particular periods.
