New archaeological finds in Raqqa
Syria, History, 12/23/1997
A large administrative site dating back to the 13th century BC has been recently found at the site of al-Sabi al-Aswad, in Raqqa, northern Syria by a Dutch archaeological team currently excavating the place.
An official source in the General Directorate of Antiquities and Museums said the building dates back to the middle Assyrian age. About 46 tablets were found in the building, including parts of the archive of minister Ashor Adin who was the strongest man in the state after the king and held an office roughly equivalent to a modern interior minister.
