From 2015–2019 excavations were conducted at the site of Khirbet al-Ra‘i, in the Judean Shephelah 4 km west of Lachish. Remains from the 12th–10th centuries BCE have been uncovered. In the late 12th and 11th centuries BCE the site appears to be the main site in the region after the fall of Canaanite Lachish. In the early 10th century it was a small village contemporary with the fortified city of Khirbet Qeiyafa.
