Notes:
 House (A-15) in the middle of the wadi, on a gravel bed in the alluvium. Probably Islamic, but possibly built atop an earlier mud-brick structure. Much chipped obsidian in and around the structure.

Most ceramics from this site are are definitely Islamic, but some could well be Pre-Islamic.

(12/24/07) Upon completion of the ceramics typology, it is now apparent that the majority of these sherds are, in fact Pre-Islamic, but that there are some which are probably Islamic.
