MetadataShow full item record
Archaeological excavations in the 2017 season are a continuation of research on the Early Byzantine and Early-Islamic house H1 in the north-eastern part of 'Marea'. During the previous research, this building was uncovered in its entirety. However, it was necessary to undertake works enabling explanation of functions of the selected structures located inside and outside. Also, an attempt was made to find out what exactly was in its immediate environment. These goals were achieved by opening five trenches in which stratigraphic excavations were carried out. This made it possible to identify the well shaft, one of the wall abutments, a small cell added to the building, a sewer and streets with deposits of debris and rubbish. Thus, the function of space around the house was determined and how the nature of their use changed in the 6th and subsequent centuries. The deep trench also made it possible to identify the range of Roman ceramic beneath the house.
