This chapter is based on the results of the first season of fieldwork at the site in 2012 and 2013, interpreting the results in light of what has been discovered in subsequent excavations. It focuses on the southern half of the site, which has been identified as the “outbuildings” of a Mamluk-era (13th-15th c.) amiral estate.
