Faunal Remains from the Magen Avraham Compound,Yafo (Jaffa) / Dr. Nimrod Marom

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A small faunal assemblage dating to the Byzantine–Early Islamic and Ottoman periods was uncovered in the Magen Avraham Compound. The animal bones were deposited in an area that used to be part of the agricultural periphery of the town and consist mainly of caprine, cattle and equids. The presence of a relatively high number of equid remains suggests that the assemblage represents the disposal of whole animal carcasses outside the city
