Juttah (2)

Juttah Its modern representative Yutta is thus described in the Memoirs accompanying the Ordnance Survey (3:310);

"A large village standing on a ridge. It is built of stone, but some of the inhabitants live in tents. The water supply is from cisterns. On the south there are rock-cut tombs, and rock wine-presses are found all around the village. The neighborhood is extremely stony. South of the village are scattered olives, which are conspicuous objects; on the west, a little lower, under a cliff, is a small olive- yard: to the south-west a few figs. The inhabitants are very rich in flocks; the village owns, it is said, 17,000 sheep, besides goats, cows, camels, horses, and donkeys. The sheik alone has 250 sheep."
