Here, near Herodion, is the kind of home occupied by families from generation to generation on the West Bank. It contains the architectural germ or basic cellular unit that was expanded to form all the larger indigenous buildings of the West Bank. The massive walls are comprised of inner and outer walls of finished stone separated by a thermal layer of rubble. The roof is domed. The stone was probably quarried from the hole that become the family cistern.
