In the Roded area I conducted a survey looking for more Roded type cult sites. This mountainous area is formed from igneous rocks, mostly granite and it is steep and difficult to climb.

On the small ridges there are "Roded type" cult sites characterised by slabs of lime stone which were brought from the seabed sediment range nearby. The area is characterised by many fold lines, a side effect of the forming of the 'Arava rift valley and the Red Sea as part of the Syrian-African rift.

I discovered in such sites perforated lime stone slabs, lime stone bowls, flint utensils, flint cores and natural & sculpted lime stone figurines engraved by the neck .

I initially discovered this type of site in 2003 and to date I have discovered more then 300.
