Abstract

An excavation at Sheikh Diab 2 in the lower Jordan Valley exposed an Early Bronze Age IB (henceforth EB IB) site. The site was discovered in 2000 by the Manasseh Hill Country Survey, and excavations directed by the author took place in 2007-2008. This well-preserved hamlet includes up to 12 elliptical residential courtyard houses, separated by alleys, spread densely across a spur next to the Wadi Fazael. The population would have been about 100, involved in growing grain and raising animals. The site appears to have been abandoned during the later phases of EB IB. The research at the site sheds new light on the rural lifestyle and economy in the Jordan Valley in EB I.
