In the northern corner, along the northwest town wall of Assur (bE4V, bD/E5I), researchers unearthed House 66 with an archive belonging to a family with the title ḫunduraya, a gentilic meaning "from Ḫundur". Another archive belonging to a related family of ḫunduraya was found nearby (Assur Archive 25). In House 66, a total of 86 clay tablets were found, including one docket. Of these, 64 tablets were found in Room k near the inner courtyard, while others were found in the courtyard and in the rooms to its southwest. Available datings range from 681 BC to the last years of the Assyrian Empire. The archive includes legal documents, such as loan documents concerning silver, textiles and straw, purchase documents, receipts, work contracts and juridical settlements.
