Landscape study of Dar es-Salaam and the basalt region north west of Homs, Syria.

Newson, P. and Abdulkarim, M. and McPhillips, S. and Mills, P. and Reynolds, P. and Philip, G. (2009) 'Landscape study of Dar es-Salaam and the basalt region north west of Homs, Syria.', Berytus., 51-52 . pp. 1-35.


This paper reflects the two seasons of fieldwork undertaken in 2005 and 2006 by a small team in part of the Shin basalt region, or Wa’ar, as it is known locally, to the north-west of Homs. It builds upon initial work undertaken in the basalt region as part of the Settlement and Landscape of the Homs Region Project (SHR Project). The work is focussed on understanding the development of the deserted village variously known as Khirbet Deir Salam or more usually Dar es-Salaam (‘House of Peace’ or ‘Place of Peace’).
