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.
Archaeologist Yarub al-Abdullah said “The number of the unearthed houses has amounted to 188, each house includes three rooms built of dry brick while the floors and walls were painted with mud or plaster.”
Some walls were decorated with colorful paintings representing ducks and goose, he added.
