The excavation areas lie at the northern edge of Horbat Hammim (Khirbat el-Hamam), close to Horbat Avidan (Khirbat Abu Dan) to the northwest and to Horbat Bizqa to the southwest (Fig. 1). A previous excavation at Horbat Hammim uncovered the remains of a farming village dating from the Hellenistic to the Early Islamic period (Haddad 2017).
The eastern part of the excavation (Fig. 2) yielded a rock-cut winepress (L100) and field walls (W101–W103). Forty-five meters to the west (Fig. 3), two walls (W104, W105), two adjacent rock outcrops with a rock-cut surface (L111) and a cupmark (L107) were found. The dating of all the features is uncertain.
Winepress 100 (Fig. 4). The winepress, uncovered in the eastern part of the excavation, comprises a treading floor and a rectangular collecting vat with a sump; the treading floor and vat are connected by a short channel. Traces of unfinished cutting marks of a building block are visible in the treading floor. A small, natural depression (L109; Fig. 5) northeast of the press may have served to collect runoff water through two natural channels draining into it. East of the winepress, on the same rock outcrop, was an unfinished rock cutting (L110) of unknown purpose.
Field walls 101–105. Field walls 101 and 103 (Figs. 6 and 7 respectively), exposed in the eastern part of the excavation, were constructed of large stones laid on the bedrock in a general east–west orientation; they were preserved only one to two courses high. West of these was W102 (Fig. 8), of which only a few stones remained; these were laid on bedrock in an east–west orientation. Walls 104 and 105, found in the western part of the excavation, ran in a north–south direction; they initially appeared as heaps of large stones.
Rock Platform 111 and Cupmark 107 (Fig. 9). Two adjacent rock outcrops in the western part of the excavation carried rock cuttings. On the western outcrop was a rectangular flat surface sloping northward, and on the eastern outcrop was a small, shallow cupmark; both were smoothed, probably through use.
Although the date of the agricultural installations uncovered in the excavation is uncertain, they must have served the residents of nearby Horbat Hammim. Pottery collected on the surface indicates activity during the Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine periods, suggesting that the installations be dated to these periods.
