Ba‘ja 2005: A Two-Storied Building and Collective Burials. Results of the 6th Season of Excavation
A Two-Storied Building in Area B-North

Aims of the Season


The aims of the 2006 season at Ba‘ja included:

1) the excavation of two collective burials in the lower room stratigraphy of Area C;
2) the re-measurement of all architectural levels taken earlier in Areas B-North, B-South, C, D, and F;
3) the clearance of architectural features in Area B-North (B22/32) and Area B-South (B64); and
4) the excavation of a Test Unit (TU7) in Area A.

The goals were devoted to strengthen the basis for the planning of future strategies and questions of large-scale excavations at the site, and to check data needed to finalize an interim monograph on Ba‘ja 1997-2005. Without excavating the collective burials in Area C, a continuation of work in this area would have been difficult, and without clearing up the potential domestic character of Area A the understanding of the site would have been loaded with unsolved questions. Except for the latter aim, all aims were fully met.
