Wadi Hisban Mills - B


About half a kilometer downstream is a prominent but low tell. Some of the buildings are remarkably complete, whilst others are completely covered by vegetation. The tell was probably not the full extent of the village, since fragmentary evidence can be seen in the fields around.
Across the stream a structure looking like a wall, perhaps a little more than a meter thick, runs down the slope. This suggests that there may even have been a mill in that location, though more excavation would be necessary to confirm this.

A thought. I have overheard discussion on Tell Hisban, and how it does not have the remains to support correlation with the Hisban of the Old Testament. Perhaps the village in Wadi Hisban would be an appropriate place to look?
