In 1936, Avraham Biran carried out a small sounding at Ras el Harube, on a hill northeast of Jerusalem. Nearby is the site known as Deir e-Sid, where further soundings uncovered an Iron Age II village. Each of these surveys sought to identify the location of the Biblical Anatot (Josh 21:13,18; 1 Chr. 6:54,60; 7:8; 12:3; 2 Samuel 23:27; Jer. 1:1; 29:27; 32:7-9; Neh. 7:27; 10:19; Ez. 2:23).
