Figs. 43 a/b. Aerial photograph and tracing of site BK 407. This fortification overlooks and defends the well at Beer Karkom now hidden by vegetation at the foot of the hills. On the right, along the trail that reaches the water source, are the remains of a tower which once controlled the access to the well. On the site of the fortification, flints of the BAC period were found, as well as an Egyptian alabaster vase dating from the Sixth Dynasty or the First Intermediate Period.
