These artifacts represent the wide variety of objects in the vast ancient Tell Hadidi collection. Excavated in the mid-1970s by MPM and international archaeologists, the site of Tell Hadidi, located in Northwest Syria on the banks of Lake Assad, was primarily occupied between 3000 BC and 1335 BC with some later, much smaller, Roman and Medieval settlements. The Tell Hadidi collection includes pottery, jewelry, metalwork, figurines, even writing on clay tablets.
