Thanks. However, I believe the study has been published: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/oa.1213/abstract;jsessionid=6D5A9C7F5E5985873F29BBB49FCB3DD4.d01t03
I am a bit familiar with the archaeologist, Dr. Timothy Matney, of the U. of Akron. As he is leading a dig at the Assyrian city of Tushan, in Diyarbakır Province, in what is today southeast Turkey.
From the project site:
Ziyaret Tepe was occupied nearly continuously for 2400 years starting in the Early Bronze Age (c. 3000 BC). For most of this time, Ziyaret Tepe was a modest village situated in the fertile Tigris floodplain. During the Iron Age (c. 882-610BC), however, Ziyaret Tepe became an important urban center on the northern periphery of the Assyrian Empire, when it was known as Tushhan.http://www3.uakron.edu/ziyaret/index.html
It would be terrific to get some aDNA from the site.
