Ancient Monument in the Huqf

This stone monument is built upon a ridge adjacent to Wadi Gharif and trends NW-SE. Cleuziou & Tosi (2007) state that in similar alignments of standing stones on long bench-like platforms, "function appears to have been ritual, rather than funerary or simply domestic". "These monuments have never been properly excavated, but one carbon 14 analysis of fireplace material indicates a date between 200 BC and 200 AD."
