During December 2002, a salvage excavation was conducted in two buildings next to the Yeroham Junction (Permit No. A-3709*; map ref. NIG 1912/5457; OIG 1412/0457), due to partial damage by work conducted along Highway 224. The excavation, on behalf of the Antiquities Authority and financed by the Department of Public Works, was directed by Y. Lender, assisted by S. Gal (surveying and drafting).
The buildings are located on the eastern fringes of the site, which extends across the entire length of a spur and includes three rectangular tumuli, c. 100–200 m apart, and other building remains whose nature is unclear.
Several ancient potsherds that may date from Middle Bronze Age I and Iron Age II were found on surface. One structure is oval (1.3 × 2.0 m), built of small and medium-sized fieldstones and preserved a single course high (c. 0.3 m). It was devoid of any finds.
The second building (c. 2 × 2 m), c. 7 m to the southeast, is built of two large stones and several small and medium-sized stones and preserved a single course high (c. 0.3 m). It was also devoid of finds.
Lines of walls and other building remains were discerned, although not excavated, near the two buildings.
It was neither possible to date the buildings nor determine their nature in the absence of finds.
