"The Scribes of Terqa,"

Archaeology at UCLA, Vol. 2, No. 14.
Abstract: Out of the literate world of ancient Syria, Terqa is beginning to emerge as a site with a special distinction: for one thing, we are finding tablets in virtually every corner of second millennium occupation, and for another, we are finding tablets from most types known in the cuneiform repertory.

"Uncovering 5000 Years of History"
Abstract: Some of the most significant constributions to knowledge are being made today through archaeology. And the most spectacular new frontier in archaeology lies in modern Syria. We take our readers in this eye-opening report to the middle Euphrates valley. Here, in a region once bypassed by the Industrial Revolution, new paved high ways are linking inner Syria's major cities, electricity is brightening village homes, and utility trenches cut through 5,000 years of buried history.
