Hukkok (2)


Yakuk, the modern representation of this site, is laid down on the Ordnance Map three and three quarter miles north-west of the shore of the Sea of Galilee (from Khan Minveh), and is described in the accompanying Memoirs (1:364, 420) as a "stone-built village, containing about two hundred Moslems; surrounded by arable land, and situated at the foot of a hill. There is a good spring, and many cisterns are found in the village. Guerin says that, in 1875, the village was reduced to about twenty houses. There are traces of ancient remains at this village, and a rockcut birkeh [pool] with steps leading down to it, also cut out of the rock."
