Uncover the remarkable history of Feynan through the many archaeological treasures that dot the surrounding landscape. Ride to Khirbet Feynan, a Roman (and later Byzantine) town destroyed by earthquakes where the remnants of early Byzantine churches still stand. From there, you can journey on to the Roman reservoir that supplied water to run a grinding mill. Portions of the mill are still clearly visible. Finally, follow tracks to a Neolithic village that dates back over 11,000 years and illustrates the shift from nomadic way of life to a settled life of permanent dwellings and agriculture.
