The ancient and present geomorphology and sedimentology of Miska

Oren Ackerman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The site of Miska is located in the Sharon region, in the central part of the Israeli coastal plain. The region is characterized by a series of red sandy soils (ḥamra) that had developed atop stabilized sand dunes. A section cut in Area A—where a refuse pit and industrial deposits of glass manufacture were unearthed—revealed a dense accumulation of ash and evidence of an ancient active channel with a low-energy water flow regime. Yellow sandy material, apparently of natural origin, which was found at the bottom of the section, might have been exploited for the manufacturing of glass at the site.
