Tell Yarimjah is the location of Eric Leidner's archaeological dig in Iraq. It is not far from Hassanieh which is itself about a day and a half by train from Baghdad.

In the ITV 2001 TV adapatation of the novel, Tell Yarimjah is situated much nearer to Baghdad. The personnel at the dig make frequent commutes to Baghdad to send/collect mail. When there is an urgent need to summon a doctor, a car is sent to Baghdad. The Tell is also within an easy horseback excursion/daytrip from Baghdad as Sheila Maitland does this frequently, which makes the distance about 10 miles.
