3,800-year-old cuneiform clay tablet unearthed in in southern Türkiye
Turkish archaeologists discovered a 3,800-year-old cuneiform clay tablet in the south of the country during the restoration after massive earthquakes earlier this year. According to Akar, a professor of archeology at Mustafamur Kamalhatai University, the recent earthquakes also affect this historical site, which marks the location of Alaleh, the capital of the Mukish kingdom in the middle and late Bronze Age.
Restoration and protection work is underway under the leadership of the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism to repair the damage caused to the discovered historical monuments. "This work emerged as a very unique example, especially for deciphering the economy of the period, the relationship between cities, the economic and political model," Akar said.
