Survey Findings Fair amount of 2nd Millennium BC pottery assemblage from Amuq Valley Regional Project. Carinated shallow bowl, flanged rim with grooves at the top, globular jar, mineral tempered cookware and concave bowl with hook rim are strong indicators of MBA; globular jar and concave shallow bowls might be diagnostics for LBA. Braidwood, the director of the previous survey project in the same region, only noted MBA for this site (1937).
