The Cemetery of Horbat Rimmon in the Southern Judean Shephelah


Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article represents the principle archaeological features of the six burial caves that can be roughly divided into three groups, according to their ground plan. The dates of these burial caves correlate with the chronological sequence of occupation in the ancient settlement of H. Rimmon as well as its archaeological remains. The remains seem to represent part of the seven Jewish settlements in the early fourth century CE. Moreover, these remains coupled with the small finds retrieved from the various sites, attest to permanent Jewish presence in this region, from the Second Temple period to the seventh century CE.
