The discovery of clay tablets in Iraqi Kurdistan has helped archaeologists unlock the mystery of an ancient lost city.

The 92 clay tablets were unearthed last summer by archaeologists from Germany’s University of Tübingen during an excavation in the village of Bassetki. Stored in a pottery vessel and wrapped with clay, experts believe that they may have been hidden away for posterity.

A good-news story: so much has been lost forever, destroyed by humans or nature over the millennia; but there's still loads out there to discover. It's fantastic that there are dedicated people who can uncover and translate these amazing finds.
Does anyone have specialised knowledge about Mardaman? The sites I've found all repeat the same limited information. They're calling it a city but I'd really like to know how big it actually was.
