The site at Khirbet Aqabat Al Qadi, where a burial chamber and other building has come to light in 2016, is located two kilometres from the city centre of Nablus on the north-western slope of Mount Ebal. At 600 metres above sea level and overlooking the city. The aim of this study is to describe the architecture and archaeological remains at the site and carry out an overall survey, documenting our results and creating a site map. We compared the sarcophagi found with other examples in the Nablus area to give them historical and archaeological context. The four sarcophagi in the burial chamber and numerous artefacts provided information to conclude that the hamlet was inhabited during Roman period (63 BC-324 AD) and till Byzantine Period (324 AD- 16Hijra/ 638AD).
