Tell Qarqur is a major archaeological site located in the Orontes River Valley of western Syria. The site possesses a 10,000-year history of virtually continuous occupation, from the Pre-Pottery Neolithic through the Mamluk period. The settlement reached its greatest extent during the Early Bronze Age, and during the Iron Age. The site is associated with the ancient town of Qarqar, the location of a major battle that occurred in 853 BC between the Neo-Assyrian army and a coalition of small Levantine kingdoms.
