This small ancient village is on a small hill top to the west of the Irbid-Ajlun road.
To the east of the village a number of rock-cut basins and settling tanks were planned, and at least two cisterns were noted to the south of the village.
As in several of the other sites in the project study area, natural caves within the area of the settlement had been modified to use as tombs or cellars. There was also one stone lined cistern reached by a short staircase. From the remaining wall lines and rock tumble, we estimate that some houses at the site are probably preserved over 2m high.
ottery retrieval at the site was one of the lowest in the project, and neither 1m x 1m sounding reached stratified deposits.
The site does not appear to be subject to looting and is not under modern agricultural or building threat.
