Regarding the location of the Upper Chambers, Oates (2004: 70) states: "The precise position of the Upper Chambers remains uncertain, but Layard observes that the rooms rested on a solid mud-brick platform and the remains of mud-brick packing were identified in area 73, to the south of the south wall of the North-West palace. This lies within the highest part of this area of the tell, and certainly represents the general location of the Upper Chambers, of which the surviving walls have now totally eroded."
