Studies in Ancient Oriental Civilization (SAOC)
A Neolithic Village at Tell El Kowm in the Syrian Desert.
The site of Tell el Kowm lies at 38o51' E, 39o10' N, placing it to the northeast of Palmyra. The site is comprised of a high tell and several smaller mounds. The monograph is a study of the finds from a five day sounding in the southern side of the high tell, conducted during 2-6 May 1967, under the direction of Professor Maurits van Loon, and also includes the results of a more detailed study carried out in February and March 1971.
