Khirbet El-Maqatir, a small site about nine miles NNE of Jerusalem, has what the nearby site of et-Tell lacks, Bronze Age remains from the time of Joshua. Bryant Wood of Associates for Biblical Research believes Khirbet El-Maqatir is the city of Ai, conquered by Joshua shortly after the conquest of Jericho.
