Hmmm... I wonder if, since it is at the site of the ancient Jordan River Mouth, with an ancient urban area there, if they hadn't tried to build a breakwater of some kind, and started piling these large rocks up...

Yeah, pehaps a man-made barrier reef of sorts, or a dumping area for boulders for land building?
