Tell Halaf

Tell Halaf (Arabic: تل حلف‎) is an archaeological site in the canton of Serekaniye, near the Turkish border. It was the first find of a Neolithic culture, subsequently dubbed the Halaf culture, characterized by glazed pottery painted with geometric and animal designs [more from Wikipedia].

During the Syrian Civil War, People’s Protection Units took control of the area.

The name Tell Halaf is a local Aramaic placename, meaning “made of former city”; what its original inhabitants called their settlement is not known.
