Dibsi Faraj Tabqa Dam
Dibsi Faraj
Dibsi Faraj was one of a number of archaeological sites in the Euphrates valley excavated in advance of its flooding by the waters formed behind the Tabqa Dam ( Lake Assad ). Excavations in 1972-74 showed that the site was occupied between the first and tenth centuries, spanning the Roman, Byzantine and Early Islamic eras.
Exploratory trenches in Area 3, seen here, uncovered walls dating from the Roman to Early Byzantine periods.
