THE IRON AGE (STRATUM V). Roughly 140 Iron Age sherds were retrieved, most dating to the Iron Age I, in mixed loci at the top of the hill (area C), in the vicinity of the spring (area A), and on the eastern slope of the hill. A scarab dated to the beginning of the Iron Age was also recovered. It appears that Ramat ha-Nadiv belonged to the Dor district mentioned in the Bible (1 Kg. 4:11).
