Ruaa Al-Jazaeri, Global Arab Network, 26/03/2010
Tal Bokrous is a sample of the first agricultural village built according to the architectural style of the Stone Age in Deir Ezzor, (432 kms northeast of Damascus, Syria). The site is the only archaeological discovery at the Middle Euphrates Region which belongs to the booming phase of the Neolithic era. The Neolithic era (New Stone Age), was a period in the development of human technology, begining about 9500 BC in the Middle East that is traditionally considered the last part of the Stone Age. The adjacent houses built along the two sides of the village yard show the greatness of the architectural style at that period.
