syria's 5th millenium bc tombs

Several dolmen tombs dating back to the 5th Millennium BC have been unearthed in several parts of southern Syria such as Ein Zakkar, Tsil, al-Bakkar and Jibilieh to the west of Daraa, in addition to al-Maysara, southeast Daraa.

The word "dolmen" means "stone table" or the "holy cemeteries" which represents the beginning of human architectural art as the findings indicate that man used this kind of tombs for burial 5,000 years ago.
