Shubayqa 6

In 2014 preliminary test excavations began at the PPNA (Pre Pottery Neolithic A) site of Shubayqa 6 revealing parts of early Neolithic buildings. A sondage through the top of the site also showed the presence of an extensive occupation sequence for the settlement.

Substantial evidence for the intensive manufacture of beads was recovered and future seasons of fieldwork will provide us with an understanding of the architecture of this settlement.
