The paper presents the results of the survey at Tel Burna, conducted in June 2009 in preparation for the long-term archaeological project undertaken at the site by the authors. The survey revealed that the mound was settled intensively in the Bronze and iron Ages, and was probably an important site along the Judah-Philistine border. The paper also details the site's settlement history in relation to its surroundings in the Shephelah; suggests possible identification of the site as libnah, one of the levitical cities; and discusses the implications of the methodology of this type of fieldwork.
