Survey Findings Only 1 sherd of possible 2nd Millennium BC pottery assemblage from Amuq Valley Regional Project. The sherd is the twisted handle of a Syro-Cilician Jug, which is a strong indicator of MBA. Braidwood, the director of the previous survey project in the same region, did not note any 2nd Millennium BC period for this site (1937).
