Homs (central Syria) Museums and Antiquities Department recently discovered a cave in Wadi al-Zahab that includes a cemetery of three tombs which are not completed because no one was buried in them. The cemetery dates back to the Byzantine era.

Head of the Department Farid Jabbour said the cemetery was discovered during the excavations carried out by the General Establishment for Water studies to keep off floods.

Moreover, The Syrian-Lebanese-Spanish joint expedition concluded archeological surveys which began in mid September in the villages of Qazhal, al-Rabiyeh, al-Mashahdeh, al-Rabieaa and Khurbat Ghazi north of the city of Homs.

The expedition also surveyed the areas of Tal al-Safa, Tal Marah and Jaftlik, which date back to prehistoric ages. The expedition studied, documented and photographed the area, collecting samples of pottery fragments and making drawings of stone sculptures.

Meanwhile, the Syrian-British joint expedition concluded surveys in the sites of al-Dumaina, Qutaina, al-Samaalil, Akrad Dasnia, al-Zaibaq, Tir Maala, and al-Ghanto.

Director of the Homs Department of Archeology and Museums Farid Jabbour said that archeological survey expeditions are continuing their work from previous seasons, and that once they finish surveys they will draw a map of ancient locations of human settlements throughout the various ages.
