Burckhardt had also found the tomb of Sheikh Hameed who was said to be a saint of the Bedouin tribe indicating that the cemetery could be of the Bedouin tribes and the skeletons belonging to the tribe of that community. Insoll also found that the graves recovered in Tell Hisban and in Corinth seem to be of the Bedouin community as they look much different from Christian graves which are more individual and Muslims graves are not singular or individual. Thus, with these multiple sources it is confirmed and concluded that the cemetery was of the seminomadic tribe Adwan of the Bedouin community living in the old Ottoman Empire. The tribe largely declined in presence during 1450, the town almost remained uninhabited but again was full of people when some ancestors of the tribal people came and settled as farmers on the farmland after World War 1. The Adwan tribe used to camp nearby the cemetery during the summer times when anyone of the member dies during that time.
When one of the Adwan tribe members died, he would be carried to the closest cemetery and that was the old cemetery in the governor’s storeroom where they would bury the dead. Normally, in a nomadic tribe, the custom of burying the dead would be at the very place where one would die and not take the body to the closest cemetery. The tribe usually had their cemeteries closer to their camping grounds. The grave would be the form of a pile of stones and a tombstone would be placed at the head of the dead. The families of the dead would mourn at the camp for few days and there were no graveside ceremonies for the dead. After then there would be a small ritual of cutting the hair by family members. Kenyon had studied the nomadic tribes and their burial methods and found out that the nomads are generally used to bury the dead where they die, and not search for cemeteries close by even though the cemetery is of their own tribe. The Adwan tribe had a sedentary lifestyle and it mostly consisted of producing grounding stones, cultivation, fishing and guarding the place of worship and of religious importance along with the trade routes.
