An Early Agricultural Settlement in the Jezreel Valley

Ein el-Jarba is beautifully located at the foot of the Menashe Hills in the Jezreel Valley. Two periods of occupation have been uncovered. In the Early Bronze Age stratum, several oval houses with complete vessels on floors, as well as working surfaces and a silo have been uncovered. The earlier Wadi Rabah layer is represented by a plastered surface and circular stone installation. The site is marked by an exceptional frequency of obsidian fragments and tools, finely decorated ceramics and a range of small finds, such as beads, worked ceramic shards, flint tools and figurines.
