Notes:
 Large site NNE of Shibam. Many mounds, each possibly the remains of one house. Multiple periods represented in the finds (which include pottery, glass, metal, and stone). Five(!) ceramics bags collected. Earliest pottery looks to be Raybun I, latest include porcelain. One bullet collected. Maybe as much as 5–8 ha., though partially eroded and covered in sand dunes, so it’s hard to judge the site’s actual size. GPS readings taken on top of largest mound.
