Syria (Hasaka) - Tombs containing skeletons dating back to the second millennium B.C. and the Arab Islamic period were unearthed in the archaeological site of Tal
Shair (hill), 22 km east of Qamishli in Hasaka Province.
Along with this finding, the Syrian national archaeological mission working at the site also uncovered a brick-floored well from the Middle Ages.
Head of the mission Suleiman Elias told SANA that other archaeological finds in the current season included pottery and stone pieces that go back to the second and third millennium B.C. and a part of a passage of an adobe building dating back to the French occupation period.
This year, Elias said, the mission expanded its work fields with the aim to unearth architectural constructions at the site, pointing out that the discoveries in the past years unveiled parts of a building under which a red brick-floored water canal and a well were found.
