Chapter Summary

During May 2010 an excavation was conducted at Fazael 4, an Early Bronze Age I (EB I) site located in the Jordan Valley, about 20 km north of Jericho. The 2010 excavation focused on the group of round buildings in the south-western part of the site. A total of 1,916 pottery sherds, each with a surface area larger than cm2, were collected and sorted during the course of the excavation and afterwards. The pottery assemblage from Fazael 4 is composed mostly of bowls and jars. The stone mortar was found together with two small stone bowls and the two small grind stones in the vicinity of the two adjacent circular buildings in the southern part of the excavation. Eleven stone objects, all dating to the EB I, were found in the excavation. They were produced from hard stone: indigenous limestone and basalt.
