The archaeology of the Euphrates river valley during the third millennium BC is marked by a collection of mortuary material that is notable for both its quantity and its spatio-temporal variety. These include depositions on open ground, simple stone cist graves and shaft tombs, all of which contain individual and multiple inhumations. Recent excavations in the Tishreen Dam on the upper Euphrates in Syria have revealed additional burials in the form of elaborate constructed tombs and aboveground funerary monuments in which multiple inhumations are housed. It is proposed that the diversity of contemporaneous mortuary practices within and between Euphrates sites constitutes the production and reproduction of social structures configured through ancestor traditions, also attested to in documents from the Ebla and Mari archives of the mid third and early second millennia BC respectively
