Adummim (meaning, the red ones), a place apparently on the road between Jerusalem and Jericho in the West Bank. It is mentioned the Bible's Book of Joshua as being "on the south side of the stream," which Matthew Easton (1897) identified with (Wadi Kelt), looking toward Gilgal. Easton claimed that it was nearly halfway between Jerusalem and Jericho, and now bears the name of Tal'at ed-Dumm. The Israeli settlement of Ma'ale Adummim is in the area.
More recently, Pekka Pitkänen (2010) has stated that "The location of Adummim is unclear."
