Site name: Humeimah Location: South Jordan Negev Feature: Aqueduct Period: Roman Nabataean
Description: The aqueduct consisted of a heavy rubble foundation wall that supported the long stone conduit blocks framed by rubble packing set in mortar. The conduit blocks were made of yellow marl or white sandstone depending of the region; the material was quarried locally. On the upper edges of the conduit blocks fist size rubble was set in hard mortar and smoothed over with stucco/plaster on the interior. The whole structure was topped with flat slabs of limestone.
