Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Moore describes the excavation of Abu Hureyra 2; its stratigraphy, the architectural findings, the burials, and some of the artifacts from the various trenches. He gives some indication of how space was used within the settlement (the layout of the houses, how they were rebuilt, the size of the streets, some food preparation took place outdoors, refuse was thrown out into the spaces between the houses, etc.). Moore also shows how the stratigraphy from the various trenches corresponds to the various phases at the site. The date for Abu Hureyra 2 (9,400-7,000 BP) is an uncalibrated date. The calibrated date for Abu Hureyra 2 is 10,400-7,800 calibrated BP
