Fig. 3. “Conder’s Circle” in a steep-sided valley just south of Khirbet el-Mukhayat and 6.25 km west-northwest of Madaba. The excavators date it to the Late Chalcolithic/Early Bronze Age and regard it as unique. The narrow dividing wall is a Byzantine boundary wall unrelated to the original structure.
Fig. 4. Byzantine tower 1.5 km north of the major Roman and Byzantine fort and town of Umm er-Resas. In this view, looking northeast, one can see the tower (scaffolded for restoration) with associated rectangular enclosure; the church on its northwest side (left); and, to the south, a second complex of well-preserved structures. Further south (bottom right quadrant) is a group of quarries, some later converted for water storage.
