Bayt al-Hawwari, a hawsh House in Sabastiya
BURGOYNE Michael Hamilton ; HAWARI Mahmoud
Sabastiya is located in the West Bank 15 km. north-west of the city of Nablus, on the eastern slope of the hill below the ancient site of Samaria-Sebaste. At the centre of the village the main mosque stands within the remains of a Crusader cathedral. Winding, dusty alleys and lanes radiate from the village square in front of the mosque. A few medieval and many Ottoman buildings survive, some in a good state of preservation. One of the buildings from the Ottoman period, the Bayt al-Hawwari, was the subject of the twelfth season of the Medieval and Ottoman Survey (MOS) carried out during four weeks from mid-August to mid-September 2000. It is a semi-private family compound (hawsh) with numerous rooms built at different times around a central courtyard reached by a formal entrance doorway from the street. Local tradition has it that the earliest part of the building was constructed in the late eighteenth century, with other parts added later.
