The archaeological site of eh-Sayyeh is located north of the city of az-Zarqa in central Jordan and was re-explored between 2013 and 2015 after initial investigations in the 1990s. It has a longer sequence of Neolithic layers from the late 8th and 7th millennia BC (calibrated dates) and shows also traces of more recent occupation up to Late Antiquity. The results of the 2013–2015 excavations prove that the settlement phases LPPNB (7500–7000/6900 BC) and PPNC (7000/6900–6400 BC) are characterised by clear continuities in terms of subsistence, architecture and the inventory of chipped lithic finds, which can be traced in part to the Yarmoukian.
