Khirbat al-Karak and al-Ṣinnabra:

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Arab historians name al-Ṣinnabra as a place at the southern end of the Sea of Galilee, at which a number of Umayyad caliphs, among them the first caliph Mu‘āwiya, used to reside from time to time. Despite its many mentions, it has long eluded certain identification in modern topography, and material evidence for its specific location has been slow to appear.
