Chapter Summary

With the discovery of the large quantity of ivory fragments in Burned Building II at Hasanlu during the 1964 season, the notion of a ?local style" at Hasanlu has since become enshrined in the literature. This chapter examines and supports the validity of such a claim, and attempts to view those qualities which characterize the Hasanlu local style in the perspective of the particular historical situation which pertained in Northwest Iran during the 9th century B.C. Due to the abandonment of Hasanlu for a time after its destruction at the end of the 9th century, it would not be possible to follow through on the long-term effects at the site of contact with Assyria. Still, the information available from the Hasanlu Project's excavation of level IVB on the citadel, further investigation of the relationship between Hasanlu V and IVB would provide much valuable information concerning the cultural processes discussed here.
