Jerablus Tahtani is a multi-period settlement located south of Carchemish. Excavation has revealed evidence related to the Uruk expansion in the fourth millennium B.C. as well as evidence of the "second urban revolution" in Early Bronze Age Syria. The Bronze Age fortified site is built atop remains of a third millennium B.C. phase. Numerous tombs and stratified mortuary deposits have been excavated, including a prominent tomb near the entrance to the Bronze Age settlement.
