Tell Halaf Excavation Project
Tell Halaf is one of the most well known sites in the Near East. As an important site, it is eponymous for a part of the Pottery Neolithic period (Halaf period, ca. 6000-5300 BCE). After the Chalcolithic age, the place was obviously abandoned and not resettled before the early 1st millennium BCE under the name Guzana, it was first the location of the capital of an Aramaean principality, later the residence of an Assyrian governor.
