el-Muntar el-Abyad

El-Muntar el-Abyad is located in the central Jordan Valley. Excavation revealed a rural Middle Bronze Age IIb occupation. The small groundstone tool occupation includes primarily grinding tools, with few bowls, pestles and weights. These were produced nearly exclusively from vesicular and non-vesicular basalt
