Ancient Settlement in Israel. On the western banks of wadi Paran traces of ancient agriculture and Matseboth. There is also rock art of Nubian Ibex in the area.

Wadi Paran is the longest in Israel ,its upper tributaries are in central Sinai peninsula and it collects big amount of runoff water. Its permit a seasonal cultivation mainly of Barley,and up to days nomads take advantage and cultivate plots of fertile land on the banks of the wadi's.
Matseboth and burial structures we find all over the desert with traces of human activity like habitation,camping ground,along ancient tracks,and agricultural land.

The ironised lime stones on the wadi's banks attracted the travellers and the shepherds and on these kinds of rock are where we find most petroglyphs.

In most of of the petroglyphs clusters Ibex engravings are dominant. In the Near East mythologies and ancient cults the Ibex represent deities of virility and endurance.

about Nubian ibex see Wikipedia.
