This website is published by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and focuses on the site of El-Mughara, Syria. El-Mughara is a ninth millennium BC settlement in Mesopotamia that was inhabited from the Pre-Pottery Neolithic B (PPNB) period to the Early Bronze Age. A series of illustrated articles focuses on: the Neolithic settlement; funerary practices in the region (non site-specific); tools; symbolic figurines (such as representations of the female form and bull's horns); the ancient environment; and the settlement during the pre-Halaf period and Early Bronze Age. Also provided are: a map; a table with all the C14 radiocarbon dates obtained from the site; a gallery of pictures; a bibliography; and contact details for the excavator. This is a preliminary report of recent excavations that may be useful especially to researchers.
