Mehme: warred village, resettled

In my fieldwork notes, I jotted down that
Hasbeg, Mahama, Mahma, Meheme or Mehme... was evacuated and destroyed in 1993 (or 1994?) and subsequently rebuilt. Walking up the slope someone asked, 'you're looking for old things, isn't it?' I corrected them, 'no, just destroyed things'. I felt bad.
I've completed the personal page for Mehme: cultural heritage and community, comprising photos, descriptions and, like the other similar sites, a few comments on interpretation of material in the resettled, warred village.

(Belatedly posted on human rights archaeology; I forgot to repost it.)
