Survey Findings Very small amount of 2nd Millennium BC pottery assemblage from Amuq Valley Regional Project. Globular jar and the flanged rim grooved at the top could be indicators for MBA whereas the plate would suggest a LBA date for the settlement. Braidwood, the director of the previous survey project in the same region, only noted possible MBA for this site (1937).
