Survey Findings Very small amount of 2nd Millennium BC pottery assemblage from Amuq Valley Regional Project. Flanged rim with grooves at the top, comb incised decoration and the hook rim plate could be the indicator of MBA occupation of this site. Braidwood, the director of the previous survey project in the same region, only noted LBA for this site (1937).
