Bet al-Malahi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The paper presents a research focused on a stone structure built in the 1930s by Salman al-Malahi, a Sheikh of the al-Turi family, and on its close surroundings. This locality, which is situated a few kilometres north of Beer-Sheva, was examined through archaeological field survey, analysis of aerial photographs and interviews. The archaeology-oriented research highlights several aspects of life in that region in the past, and enables a reassessment of some theoretical issues within Levantine archaeology.
