The connection belongs to Constructions connections.
Ahwar of Southern Iraq: Tell Eridu Archaeological Site
Aleppo: Mound of Al-Aquabah (which probably constitues the Tel of ancient Aleb)
Baptism Site "Bethany Beyond the Jordan": Tell Al-Kharrar (Elijah’s Hill)
Caves of Maresha and Bet Guvrin: Tel Maresha
Djenné: From AB evaluation "The floods cover all but some hillocks; these are called toguere.....All these tells, which were a natural refuge from the flood waters, are potential archaeological sites and on that basis deserve to be protected." This refers to the Toguere of Djenne-Djeno and "Other toguere, such as at Hambarketolo, Tonomba and Kaniana..."
Çatalhöyük: two large tells (AB ev)
