Buildings with urban planning are among the most prominent architectural features that appeared in the ancient Iraqi architecture, which dates back to the history of man’s knowledge of house building when he left the cave. But its appearance in the Age of the Dynasty had a distinctive character, especially since it was concentrated in the northeastern region of modern Iraq. The archaeological excavations in Hamrin and Makhoul have provided us with several models of circular buildings whose functions varied according to the aims of their construction, as well as their internal divisions. In this study, we will tackle one of these buildings, named 'Tell al-Faras', which is located in the Makhoul area, that was found during the rescue excavations of the site. The study is an attempt to accurately identify the function of the building by comparing it with models of other buildings. In addition, the artistic finds will be part of the study because of their importance in obtaining evidence to identify the function of the building.
