The top of Al-Birweh. View to the west.
Roman documents mention Al-Birweh with the name “Biri”, which is derived from the syriac word “Bira” (wells). The Crusaders called it “Broet’, from which the Arabs derived its present name. To the west of Al-Birweh lies the Tel of Bir El-Gharbi whose remains suggest that it was the site of the Canaanite community "Rahoob. This Tel contains the remains of a temple resembling the Temple of Astarut found in Makour (today's Al-Makir).
