The region of Qaz
rin is known to be a large field of dolmens and tumuli that extends southward to the foot of the Golan Heights at the Sea of Galilee. C. Epstein had excavated many of the dolmens (‘Atiqot
17:20–58*) and many others were documented in dolmen and tumuli surveys (HA-ESI
106:5–8). The current survey was conducted in the south and southwestern parts of the neighborhood. Twenty-two sites were documented; most of them consisted of stone heaps, which were either dolmens or stone clearance heaps. Several were clearly dolmens and one was a large unique dolmen.
1. A ruinous dolmen; stone circle (?); a capstone found in situ.
2. A stone heap (diam. 7 m); nearby, a smaller stone heap, possibly a clearance heap.
3. A stone pile or clearance heap.
4. A stone pile or circle of stones.
5. A small stone pile or clearance heap.
6. A large stone heap, dolmen?
7. An elongated stone pile, possibly a clearance heap.
8. A large stone heap (diam. 9 m).

12. A stone heap with a circle of stones, dolmen (?).
13. A stone heap with a circle of stones (diam. 8 m).

20. A complete dolmen with a capstone in situ; the stone heap was robbed.
