The site of Ayun sits on a high promontory overlooking the Wadi Ayun with a permanent river/springs below. The ten structure village represents a small settlement of the period (4000 B.C.). The houses were built with a stone foundation using boulders. The superstructure would have been of wood and thatch? Typical stone tools from the houses included the beautiful trihedral rods. A small excavation at the site yielded numerous bones of animal remains.
