Type site of the Ghassulian in the Jordan Valley (Palestine) near the Dead Sea, dated c 3800-3350 BC. It is known for polychrome geometric and figurative mural paintings in trapezoid-shaped mud-brick houses. The Ghassulian stage was characterized by small settlements of farming peoples whose pottery was elaborate in style, and included footed bowls and horn-shaped goblets. The Ghassulians also smelted copper.
