Fuller’s Field
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
Also known as Washer’s Field. There was an area just outside Jerusalem where a spring or conduit was connected to an upper pool; this identified the road that led to the area known as Fuller’s Field or Washer’s Field (2 Kgs 18:17; Isa 7:3; 36:2). People living in and around Jerusalem seem to have used this area for washing items.
