Sites Investigated by the EDSP
The EDSP conducted a survey of the southeastern Dead Sea Plain in 1973, and identified several Early Bronze Age sites in the region, including the settlements at Bab edh-Dhra’, and Numeira, and cemeteries at Bab edh-Dhra’, Safi/Naqa’, Feifa, and Khanazir (Rast and Schaub 1974). In the 1970’s and 1980’s the EDSP conducted excavations at Bab edh-Dhra’ (settlement and cemetery), Numeira, Feifa, and Khanazir. Summaries of the preliminary results can be found on the following links.
