Survey Findings Very small amount of 2nd Millennium BC pottery assemblage from Amuq Valley Regional Project. Pithos and krater fragments with flanged rim grooved at the top is very typical of both earlier and later parts of MBA in the region. Braidwood, the director of the previous survey project in the same region, also noted MBA for this site (1937).
