Pleiades

The site, which has been excavated since 1986 (under the direction of Peter Akkermans), comprises four settlement mounds (I–IV). In addition to the earliest pottery from Syria (ca. 6900-6800 BCE) being discovered there, over 400 cuneiform tablets (written in the Akkadian language) from the late 13th and 12th centuries BCE (Middle Assyrian Period) were unearthed at Tell Sabi Abyad I, the largest of the four mounds.
