Two eighth-century-B.C. archives were excavated in Fort Shalmaneser, a building complex in the southeastern corner of the city Kalhu. One archive was located in Rooms NE 47–50 at the northern side of the northeast courtyard. It consists of about eighty unsealed administrative texts, including twenty-two horse lists and forty-eight wine lists. A few clay tablets were also found in other rooms nearby.
