Abstract

Four seasons of survey and excavation along the wadi al-'Ajib of the southern Hauran, north Jordan, uncovered structural and ceramic evidence for agricultural activity in the region during the Middle Bronze Age. This spread of agricultural settlement into a marginal, semi-steppic zone includes structural facilities for the storage of agricultural commodities, such as silos, and a large quantity of ceramic storage vessel remains. Typological analysis of these ceramic remains, and an ethnographic analysis of a local, modern assemblage indicates a continued, yet declining, requirement for storage facilities, and an amicable storage relationship between both nomadic pastoralists and semi-sedentary agriculturalists during the Middle Bronze Age.
