In the book "Rivers in the Desert" Nelson Glueck reported it as Elats industrial city. The discovery of copper smelters dating back to the 13th century BC were linked with finds of water works, worker housing, temples to Hathor, copper and gold.

In the book "the Pre and Protohistory of the Arabian Penninsula" Mohhamed Nayim reported archaeologists linking it with the copper mines at Timnah and finds of Egyptian faience pottery.

Modern archaeologists like Juris Zahrins have linked it with a number of trade routes coming down to Elat from the Mountains of Lebanon and the [[[Dead Sea]]] bringing cedar wood, finely woven linen, bitumen, natron or salt, ben jamin or juniper oil from Lebanon, and coming up from Punt bringing frankincense and myrrh; all to be used in Egyptian mummification rituals at Karnack in return for the nub or Egyptian gold brought from Thebes by Hatshepsuts fleet.

Abronah was a station of the Exodus.
