Molluscs from the Early Bronze Age site at Qiryat-Ata - Area N

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This report discusses 35 malacological remains excavated at Qiryat Ata - Area N. Most of the specimens originated in EB II contexts, a few from surface loci. The malacological evidence indicates contacts with the Mediterranean during EB II, as well as exploitation of nearby Nahal Qishon. Twelve shells of the species Cerastoderma glaucum display an artificial, worked hole that may have been part of a necklace
