Two additional dolmens were discovered. They belong to types which were not described in previous studies (Hartal 2017; Fraser 2018). One is a ‘double dolmen’: two dolmens that share a tumulus and a perimeter wall, the course of which forms an elliptical, almost heart-shaped enclosure (Fig. 7:I). The other is annular, with a deep crater in its center (Fig. 7:II). The crater may be associated with indistinct depressions noted in several recently excavated dolmen sites (Alexandre 2017; Berger and Sharon 2017; Berger and Gottschalk 2019).
The field’s location—among the main concentrations of dolmens in the Golan Heights and not far from the dolmen fields in the Hula Valley and at Shamir (Greenberg 2002:79–80)—may help in understanding the connection between the dolmen fields in the north of the country. The new, previously unrecognized dolmen types augment the list of new types that have been identified in recent years (Hartal 2017; Sharon et al. 2017). The brief survey significantly increased our understanding of the size of the Deir Saras dolmen field and its extent, from the area of Dabura in the west (Hartal and Ben Ephraim 2014: Site 39) to the area of Sheik Marzuq in the east (Hartal and Ben Ephraim 2014: Site 33). Nevertheless, a thorough and comprehensive survey is clearly required to better estimate the area covered by this dolmen field and to better understand its nature.
