Shefela / Periods: Roman, Byzantine, Arabic.

In the Shephela area, there is the Beit Guvrin site, right in the middle of the Guvrin Creek basin. In the valleys between the hills is the agricultural zone; local water sources too, are here. The remains of a major road junction were found, extending from the length of Shephela from north to south and from west to east.
The bedrock is limestone soft tens of feet thick. The weather has created a harder limestone cap (“nari”) from 5 to 10 feet. Many caves have been dug, of varying size and use. The rock extracted from the caves was used for many things. The created spaces allowed formerly for the use of the inhabitants, of manufacture, warehouse of food for the population, of reservoirs of water, warehouses for the breeding of cattle and animals and obviously for their protection of the enemy or any wild animal.
