Abstract: Many economic establishments were erected, either inside buildings or in the &elds of the Palestinian countryside. These establishments were either of a permanent nature and operated continuously from harvest to harvest, or they were temporary in that they were built seasonally using any available natural material, used and then dismantled. The establishment of these installations as measures of ownership or protection of crops, in urban and rural communities was carried out by peasants, craftsmen and shepherds whose lives were dependent on agricultural and pastoral economy. These installations have played a signi&cant role in the economy of the areas because they were used in food production for local and commercial needs, to protect crops from birds, animals and thieves, to facilitate harvesting and threshing, for storage of produce after the harvests, and to mark the divisions of the land. As some of these installations have belonged to families over many generations and continue to operate in the present day, many of them still use the traditional working method of animal labour. However, many others have incorporated technology into their ways of working and replaced animals with mechanical equipments
