The collection of bronze objects from Tell Sougha (ca. 2000 before j.c) and the question of “Holders of Torcs” in the east

The Tell Sougha site, located in the Northern half of Beqa’a plain, delivered a small collection of bronzes, which had been discovered fortuitously. These arms, tools and adornments, now preserved in the Archaeological Museum of the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik, forms, by typological comparison, a homogenous body that goes back to the dawn of the Middle Bronze Age, around 2100-1900 BC These historical artefacts come, in all likelihood, from a necropolis - which would be the first one documented in Lebanon for this little-known period.
