Huzuq Musa

Huzuq Musa is a Final Natufian site located in the Jordan Valley. Excavations at the site revealed several oval stone structures and dozens of bedrock features. The bedrock features studied with D. Nadel from the Zinman Institute of Archaeology, University of Haifa, are similar to those uncovered at other Natufian sites, including a notable variation of types, diameters and depth.
