Tall al-Shir dig reveals centuries of construction

Workers at the Tall al-Shir archaeological dig in Syria have so far uncovered three layers of history dating back to the Roman and Greek eras. A recent find including walls from the late Byzantine period.

Earlier digs uncovered Roman streets and pottery, while the latest excavations "helped unveil the time when the site was destroyed in the 11th century which can be initially associated with the major earthquakes which hit Shayzar town in 1157 and 1180."
