Area A. One and a half squares (A1 and A2) were opened. In Square A1 (L101; Fig. 2) the scant remains of two parallel walls (W20: length 1.50 m, width 0.75 m; W21:length 2.00 m, width 0.30–0.60 m) were discovered close to modern surface. The walls, founded on hamra, were built of various size fieldstones without bonding material and were aligned northwest-southeast. They were preserved one course high (0.16 and 0.32 m respectively) and did not form a clear architectural plan. In the half square (A2) a burnt layer (L111; thickness 0.09 m) that did not yield any datable finds was exposed.

Area B. Two squares (B1, B2; Fig. 3) were opened in which a wall (W10, length 35 m, width 0.85 m) was uncovered just below surface. It was built of different size fieldstones without bonding material and was founded on hamra; the wall was oriented north–south. The wall continued south of Square B1 and north of Square B2 and was preserved one course high  (0.11–0.15 m). It was abutted from the east by a floor (F11; thickness 0.11 m) that consisted of a bedding of small to medium-sized fieldstones and a layer of cement. A few small body fragments of black Gaza Ware jars were found in between the stones of the wall and on the floor.

Area C. In Area C, which was severely damaged as a result of agricultural activity, five half-squares were opened (C1–C5) where levels of different size fieldstones without bonding material were exposed; their use was not ascertained. Pieces of cement between fieldstones were found in Squares C1–C3 (L302, 311, 321; Figs. 4–6). These were probably the remains of a floor of another farm building which together with the building in Area B and the aqueduct to the west formed a closed compound around a large courtyard.

A few undecorated body fragments of black Gaza Ware jars and pieces of Marseilles roof tiles that dated to the end of the Ottoman period were found.
