The National Excavation Team has ended its 4th excavation
season by discovering an ancient bathhouse dating back to
the late Byzantine era and the beginning of the Omayyad
era. The bath was discovered within a huge architectural
bloc which was likely a palace.
Head of Excavation Team, Eng. Ibrahim Amiri,
said that a number of the bathhouse' sections had been
discovered, particularly the inner section which contained
hot water distribution system under the floor and in the
walls of the building, in addition to discovering
the remains of a church adjoining the palace.
He went on saying that the palace is a huge
building of a 200-sq.m area and resembles the palaces of the
Omayyad deserts such as the Eastern and Western Al-Hir
