Area A
Building remains and two phases of habitation levels from the Chalcolithic period (Strata II) were discovered. Above them were settlement remains from Middle Bronze II (Stratum I), which displayed the raising of floors and additions to buildings.
Stratum II. Two activity phases from the Chalcolithic period (Figs. 3, 4) were exposed in the eastern part. An earthen floor with a round surface of wadi pebbles and small stones (L146; diam. 1.3 m) was ascribed to the early phase. Attributed to the later phase were a similar surface (L132) and a floor that was overlaid with small round installations, bedrock-hewn or built of small wadi pebbles (Loci 168–171; diam. 0.20–0.25 m). To their west were openings of two rock-shelters or caves with building additions (L145, W9; L154, W14), which were located beyond the limits of the excavation and their use could not ascertained.
A corner of a building and a floor (L159; Fig. 5) were exposed in the western squares. The walls (W10, W11), built of fieldstones, were preserved a single course high. To the west, a fieldstone collapse (L151) overlaid an earthen floor (L161).
Stratum I. A room and an adjacent courtyard to its south were exposed in the eastern part of the southern section (see Fig. 3). The walls of the room (W1, W2, W12), preserved two–three courses high, were built of fieldstones with small stones and soil in between. The tamped-earth floor of the room (Loci 147, 155) was applied to the surface of a previous floor (L165).
A bench (W13) south and next to W1 was built in the later phase. In the courtyard, a crushed chalk floor (Loci 118, 119, 164) that abutted on the southern and western sides of natural bedrock was exposed. Several flagstones in the western part were used as a pavement (L133), which overlaid a tamped-earth floor (Loci 124, 127), evidence of its prolonged use.
To the west, four wall stumps built of fieldstones (W4–W7), which apparently belonged to another building, were exposed. A rock-hewn threshold in W5 marked the entrance to the building located in the north, which was beyond the limits of the excavation. A courtyard (L140) to the south, next to the building, was partly delimited by natural bedrock. Very close to the surface was a circular installation built of fieldstones (L152) whose date is unclear.
Area B
Building remains and floors that belonged to two settlement phases of Middle Bronze II (Stratum I) were found. These were uncovered in two building complexes: in the west (Fig. 6) and c. 70 m to the east (Fig. 7). Walls and floors of buildings, whose general plan could not be clarified due to the limited excavation area, were found in the two complexes. The western building comprised five walls. Two parallel walls (W55, W57; height 0.25 m), which apparently belonged to a single building, were oriented northeast-southwest; tamped-earth floors (Loci 337, 340) abutted the walls. Three other walls (W51, W54, W56), discovered 6 m to the east, were preserved a single course high and probably belonged to the same building. A single floor (L335) abutted W51 and W54 and two floors (Loci 339, 343) abutted W51 and W56. A small section of a floor (Loci 347, 350) that predated the construction of the building was ascribed to the early phase in this area.
Two sections of walls (W50, W52; preserved height of 0.2–0.4 m) were discovered in the eastern building complex (Fig. 7), as well as floors (Loci 307, 310, 311) that abutted them. The construction style of the walls was similar to that of the rest of the buildings at the site and based on their alignment, it seems that they belonged to two buildings.
