Publication of the Neolithic sites of Tell Qarassa

This grant will support the publication of the final report of the Neolithic (Early Pre-Pottery Neolithic B) site of Tell Qarassa North and the Natufian site of Qarassa 3, excavated Dr. Juan José Ibáñez (IMF-CSIC) in collaboration with Dr Frank Braemer (CNRS), between 2009 and 2010. Each site will be published in English in a volume of Biblioteca del Próximo Oriente Antiguo, the Spanish National Research Council’s collection of monographs devoted to the Archaeology of the Near East, in 2020, while the raw data of the excavation will be accessible at the open access repository of our institution.
