A salvage excavation was discovered at the site of Ain al-Baida (northeast of Amman). In July 2011, a mortuary facility was used to raise pigeons. The importance of the information derived from this fossil is that it shed more light on the history of the Ammonites and their economic activities in their capital, Rabat Ammon.
This discovery raises important questions about similar installations that were dated, by default, to later eras of the Iron Age. But raising pigeons on a large scale is a long-standing human endeavor, whether to use them as a food source, a means of communication, or to be used in divination.
