Survey Findings Small amount of 2nd Millennium BC pottery assemblage from Amuq Valley Regional Project. Syro-Cilician Ware and flanged rim with grooves at the top are indicators of MBA, whereas plate with red band decoration on the rim and shell tempered cookware are of LBA. Braidwood, the director of the previous survey project in the same region, noted only possible MBA for this site (1937).
