Dean of the Faculty of Archeology and Anthropology at YU lamia El-Khouri said the survey, which came within a joint project titled "Archeological Surveys in Tel Ya'mun," depends on maps and aerial photographs to document archeological sites through drawing and photographing surface layers and analyzing architectural remains.
