dc.description.abstractKhirbet et-Tireh – a site located approximately 16 km northwest of Jerusalem with remains dated to the Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, and Early Islamic periods – has suffered over the past two centuries from severe depredation, resulting in the total loss of about three-fourths of its once-settled area. However, our excavations in the now-protected part suggest that the exposed cultural remains here possess high tourism potential, encompassing several features of historic, religious, and aesthetic interest. Further, our many discoveries offer a window into the irretrievable loss of material culture and related data suffered by the rest of the site, mainly the result of unplanned and uncontrolled urban development projects.en_US
