Abstract: 
Exotic objects between distant regions frequently constitute bases for interpreting them as evidence of direct interaction. This tendency is especially widespread in archaeological research of late prehistoric periods. Excavations of nine late Early Bronze I (EB I) burial caves at el-Khirbe in a modern quarry at Nesher-Ramla (NRQ = Nesher Ramla Quarry) has yielded various imported objects. Six are of Egyptian origin and a seventh is an extremely rare import from the Middle Euphrates Valley. The current paper presents these artifacts, proposes the manner in which they were likely imported and offers a broad interpretation of the phenomenon of including such objects as grave goods.
