Abstract

This paper discusses the late J. Kaplan’s 1970 excavations at Khirbet al-Ḥadra. It focuses on how disposed material in archaeological sites supplements our historical knowledge and provides information on the political, social and religious history of late antique Palestine. It deals with a transitional period of occupation (Byzantine-Early Islamic) and tries to show how the reuse and recycling of finds not only provide data on shifting in the political sovereignty of the region but also on the religious or social affinity of the ethnic groups involved.
