Home to an extended family. This small cluster of rooms at Khirbet Raddana, about four miles west of Ai, is really a multiple-family compound.

Just behind the workman in the photo is the largest room of the main house, separated by a row of four pillars from a long narrow room, far right. Originally, these pillars supported a second story. To the left of the largest room is a courtyard. Sometime after this photo was taken, the areas to the left and in front of the main house and the mound of debris behind it were also excavated and a plan of the complex was drawn (see plan).
