Remains of a city wall were exposed in Square A1 and to the south. The wall was composed of an outer face (W308), preserved seven courses high and an inner face (W311), which was built of dry construction utilizing large fieldstones (0.3×0.4×0.7 m). Both faces of the wall were founded on the bedrock and had a core of a leveled fill (L304), composed of soil and large fieldstones (0.4×0.6×0.7 m). A building whose walls (W310, W312; preserved height 1.6 m) were constructed from various size fieldstones abutted on the inside of W311. These walls were founded on the bedrock and a floor made of firmly tamped earth and small stones (L340) abutted them.
The ceramic finds, overlying the floor and dating to Iron Age I, included bowls (Fig. 2:1, 2), a cooking pot (Fig. 2:5), a cooking jug (Fig. 2:10) and a jar (Fig. 2:11).  
Later, an east–west oriented wall (W314; Fig. 3) was built and blocked the entrance to the room; it separated it from another room (L332), whose continuation was beyond the limit of the excavation area.
The ceramic finds from this phase included cooking pots (Fig. 2:3, 4, 6–9), a jar handle (Fig. 2:12) and a lamp (Fig. 2:13), dating to Iron Age I.

A level of pounded soil and small stones that may be the bedding of a floor was exposed above bedrock in Square A3.
