Square A (2.5 x 5.0 m). This square was opened along the edge of the drainage ditch. An oval pit (L100; diam. 1.4–1.6 m, depth 1.5 m; Figs. 2–4) that contained gray soil was exposed at a depth of 0.15 m below surface. The pit became wider toward the bottom and at a depth of 0.6 m from the top a light brown-colored mud-brick matrix (0.12 x 0.20 x 0.20 m) was discovered, adjacent to the northern side. A gray-white layer of soil (thickness 2–3 mm) was exposed on the bottom of the pit. The pottery fragments recovered from the pit dated to MB IIB, including jars (Fig. 5:2, 3), among them a “Red White Blue” jar (Fig. 5:4) and LB II, including bowls (Fig. 5:7, 8, 12–14) and a cooking pot (Fig. 5:18). Animal bones were also discovered. The shape of the pit is reminiscent of a burial shaft; however, no human bones were discovered and the artifacts in the pit do not allude to an interment, but rather to a refuse pit.
Square B (Fig. 6). This square, c. 15 m southwest of Square A, was opened along the edge of the drainage ditch. A refuse pit whose shape is unclear was exposed, although only partly excavated (L200; upper width 0.6 m, bottom width 2 m, depth 1.62 m). The pit contained gray soil mixed with potsherds that mostly dated to MB IIB, including a krater (Fig. 5:5) and a jar (Fig. 5:6), and to LB II, including bowls (Fig. 5:9–11, 15), kraters (Fig. 5:16, 17), a jar (Fig. 5:19) and a flask (Fig. 5:20). This pit also yielded a single fragment of a holemouth rim from the Wadi Rabah culture (Fig. 5:1). Southeast of the pit, at the bottom of the drainage ditch, a wall that was built of one or two rows of mud bricks (L201; length 1.2 m, max. width 0.3 m; Fig. 7) was exposed. The mud bricks, not uniform in shape or color, were poorly preserved and probably in secondary use. The wall extended as far as the edge of the refuse pit; however, it is unclear if they were connected. Jar fragments were discovered between the mud bricks and north of the wall.

Square C. This square was c. 30 m west of Square B, along the edge of the drainage ditch. A few non-diagnostic potsherds and flint industrial debitage were scattered at a depth of 0.5 m below surface.
