Survey Findings Only 1 sherd of possible 2nd Millennium BC pottery assemblage from Amuq Valley Regional Project. This particular sherd is a flat base pithos fragment with sand traces at the bottom. The chronological implication of this type is various within the region. It is a Middle Bronze Age pithos type in Kinet Höyük (pers. comm. with Yağmur Heffron), a Late Bronze type in Tatarlı Höyük and an Iron Age type in Tell Atchana/Alalakh (pers. comm. with Mara Horowitz). Therefore it is difficult to designate a period for this particular type of pottery for Kiremitli but it might be not inaccurate to date it to the period same as Tell Atchana, which is Iron Age I. Braidwood, the director of the previous survey project in the same region, noted possible MBA for this site (1937).
