Ramot 6: A Burial Site in the Goral Hills, In the Northern Be'er Sheva' Valley

Peter Fabian, SORIN HERMON

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The site Ramot 6 can be defined as a burial site, according to its architectural remains and the human burials located within them. The main feature of the site is a large stone circle. The diagnostic ceramic material belongs to Iron II. The fact that it's in clear strategraphic context with the burials allows the secure attribution of the site to that period. The flint tool are distinguished by a lack of any characteristics that can define them as belonging to any specific period/culture. Their raw material and similar morphological characteristics may attribute them to a single assemblage. Therefore, in this case, the ceramic assemblage may indicate the cultural attribution of the lithic assemblage as well.
