Summary/Abstract: A Ninevite 5-period presumed kitchen discovered in 2010 at the site of Tell Arbid in northeastern Syria is discussed from the point of view of specific cooking installations and objects used for cooking and food processing. The kitchen was furnished with two hearths, a storage bin, two jars sunk in the floor and large fragments of pottery vessels, which could have been used for cooking, processing and storing foodstuffs. Cooking pots are the most numerous, but big bowls, common ware jars, lids and a small shovel were also part of the kitchen accessories.
