Area A (Fig. 2). A quarry (L101) was excavated; its southern side was curved (diam. c. 2 m, depth c. 1 m), suggesting that a roll-stone intended for a burial cave or an installation, such as an olive press, was hewn there. Non-diagnostic potsherds were exposed in the fill inside the quarry.
Area B (Fig. 3). A farming terrace (L102; exposed length c. 27 m) was revealed c. 200 m east of Area A, in an area that descends gently toward the west. The terrace, aligned north–south and preserved three courses high, was built of large fieldstones (0.2–0.6 m) and small fieldstones. Two squares were opened next to the terrace and it was ascertained that the terrace was founded on dark brown clayey soil.
Worn potsherds that dated to the Byzantine period were exposed next to the terrace and between the stones. Although these finds are insufficient to date the construction of the terrace, it joins other farming terraces located in the immediate vicinity that are apparently connected to the Byzantine settlement.
Area C. Several large scattered fieldstones (0.2–0.6 m) were exposed c. 300 m south of Area B. Potsherds dating to the Byzantine period were discovered between them.
The small finds recovered from the excavation were poorly preserved and therefore not illustrated.
A section of the agricultural hinterland of Shoham was exposed in the excavation. Based on past excavations and the few potsherds discovered, it might date to the Byzantine period. The farming terraces show that the region was extensively cultivated. The excavated quarry is part of an array of quarries that were exposed in the region, probably due to the quality of the bedrock.
