Chapter Summary

Travellers and explorers who visited Tall Jawa, such as Alois Musil (in 1898-1902), Albrecht Alt (in 1932) and Nelson Glueck (in 1933-1937), recognized its importance as an ancient site.Before excavation began at Tall Jawa, the history of settlement was known only through the observations of explorers engaged in surface survey. The results of one such survey by Nelson Glueck (1934) produced pottery that he assigned to the Iron Age and the Early Bronze Age. Excavation began in 1991 at the southwest corner of Building 600 (Squares D2-D3) and extended north along the west wall (D2-D3) and east along the south wall in Squares D2-D22. During the 1995 season, a surface survey of the area encompassed by Squares D7-D27 and D8-D28 identified two north-south wall lines, and four east-west wall lines in an area located north of Building 600.
