Chapter Summary

During February, March and September 2007 and April 2008, excavations were conducted at the site of Sheikh Diab 2, located in the Jordan Valley, on a spur along the edge of Wadi Fazael, about 20 km north of Jericho, and 1 km west of the settlement of Fazael. This chapter presents the results of the excavation, and analyses the main archaeological finds, putting them into the broader geographical and cultural framework of the early Bronze Age I (EB I) period. During the two excavation seasons it was decided to open four different areas: in the upper part of the site, where the remains of a building are located at surface level; the main area of excavations, in a region where the slope of the spur diminishes and the remains of many walls are visible; building remains located in the north-eastern part of the site; and remains of other residential complexes.
