Lightfoot On the east side of the Jordan Valley during the Roman and Byzantine periods, dynamic populations pushed outinto marginal lands where no permanent, sedentary civilizations preceded or followed them, doubling the pop-ulation of many sites in the area compared to the pre-Roman era.1 In this marginal, summer-dry Mediterraneanland, the concern for water supply is pervasive, especially in the steppe or desert land of the Levant, where thepresence and possession of water were decisive for life and death.2 During the Roman-Byzantine period, as atpresent, the development of surface water resources was primarily emphasized,3 but an attempt also was madeto develop groundwater resources by constructing wells, spring tunnels, and qanats.
