Abstract In the September issue of NEA, a brief summary was presented of the Iron Age through early Mamluk remains excavated by the American Schools of Oriental Research Expedition at Tell Qarqur in the Orontes Valley of Syria. This article deals with the earlier range of materials encountered by the expedition, covering the Bronze Age to the Neolithic. Important materials of Early Bronze IV and Middle Bronze II are being exposed, and so far only scanty but important remains of critical periods such as Middle Bronze I and Late Bronze II. It has become obvious that the Early Bronze Age was one of the major and most impressive periods of occupation on the site. The Early Bronze Age occupation needs to be seen in its regional context, and a good collection of samples, particularly paleobotanical and paleozoological, allow comparisons of cultural developments and changes to be made through time.
