Description:

The site of Giv'at ha-Oranim (map ref. 1468â"1588) was first recorded by Gophna and Beit-Arieh. It is located near Khirbet el-Bira which takes its name from a small Byzantine/Early Islamic village excavated in the vicinity . The site sits on a rocky hilltop (130 m asl at its highest point) whose southern side slopes steeply down to the course of Naúal Beit Arif. It lies 15 km northeast of Ben Gurion International Airport and 3 km east of the town of Shoham. The ancient site extends over an area of 8,250 square meters. Most of the occupation remains are concentrated on the south and east of the hill which slopes moderately on the northern, eastern and western sides. Recent settlement and agricultural activity, added to the fact that the hilltop was once used for field manoeuvres by the Israel Defence Forces, have severely damaged the archaeological remains especially in the southern part of the site.In 1994 the proposed route of a highway that would traverse the country from north to south was surveyed by teams from the Israel Antiquities Authority. The site later to be called Giv'at ha-Oranim was described as comprising the remains of small quarries, two basins, a rockcut wine press and agricultural terraces from the Byzantine period. There was no mention of Chalcolithic remains. Bookseller Inventory #
