Abstract

This paper discusses the history of research at Deir el-Azar (Tel Qiryat Ye'arim), including a discussion of its traditional identification with Kiriath-Jearim and a preliminary report of both the recent archaeological survey and G. Barkay's salvage excavation, which was carried out in the winter of 1995-1996. Significantly, this paper provides the first modern report on the nature of the archaeology of Kiriath-Jearim (Deir el-Azar), which includes occupation from the Neolithic period until modern times.
