Abstract

The site of El-Maghar, located in the central coastal plain of Israel was an important settlement during the EBI-EBII, between the late 4th-3rd millennia BeE. During the EBI Egyptian immigrants seem to have resided among the local population, as at sites like Lod and Azor in the same region. The EB settlement at Maghar reached its zenith during EBII, when it was fortified by a brick wall, but was not settled in EBIII.
