Six flotation samples from the cut face of the tell were extracted and examined for this report. The goal of this exploratory analysis is to determine whether there are any observable differences between the Tell Jouweif (SS 8) assemblage and those of nearby Early Bronze Age Tell es-Sweyhat or the other roughly contemporary sites farther downstream (Selenkahiye [T 507, EBA] and Tell Hadidi [T 548, MBA]). A fair amount of previous archaeobotanical research provides the basis for comparisons (Miller 1997b; Hide 1990; van Zeist and Bakker-Heeres 1985).
