Ummah (2)

Ummah is probably the present Alma esh-Shaub, two and a half miles south-east of en-Nakuerah (near the promontory of the same name), described in the Memoirs to the Ordnance Survey, 1:150, as "A large Christian village, containing about five hundred inhabitants. The houses are clean and well built. There are two chapels, and the place seems increasing in size. It is situated on a ridge, with figs, olives, pomegranates, and arable land around. To the east and north the land is covered with brushwood. There is a spring within reach, and about thirty rock-cut cisterns in the village."
