Quarry 1 (L100, L101; Figs. 2–5). This was a small quarry that produced building stones. Detachment marks of rectangular stone blocks (0.40 × 0.65 m) were visible on the rock; most of them were aligned in a row and surrounded by severance channels. A few fragments of ribbed jars from the Byzantine period were discovered in the alluvium that accumulated over the quarry.
Quarry 2 (L103; Figs. 3, 6, 7). A long, narrow quarry that produced building stones, located c. 22 m southwest of Quarry 1. Deep, narrow severance channels were evident around rectangular blocks of stone (average size 0.40 × 0.65 m) that were arranged in several rows. A rectangular block that was almost completely hewn, but not yet detached, remained in the quarry.
Quarry 3 (L105; Figs. 3, 6, 8). A quarry for building stones. Traces of severance channels surrounded a few rectangular stone blocks. Several fragments of ribbed jars from the Byzantine period were discovered in the alluvium above the quarry.
(L104; Figs. 3, 6–8). A small elliptical cave (1.4 × 2.9 m, height 1.45 m) that was hewn in soft limestone, 32 m north of Burial Cave 30 (Be'eri 2015
) and below Quarry 3. The cave had a small central chamber, whose ceiling was damaged by mechanical equipment in the modern era; the entrance to the cave was not preserved. Pottery body fragments of jars and of a jug were found in the soil that accumulated over the floor of the cave. They were similar to the vessels that were previously discovered in Cave 30 (Be'eri 2015
), and should therefore probably date to the Iron Age II. Ribbed pottery sherds, probably from the Byzantine period, were also found, and indicate the latest use of the cave.
Three building-stone quarries were discovered in the excavation. Given the similar dimensions of the stones that were discovered in two of them, they presumably operated simultaneously. A cave that was used during the Iron Age II and the Byzantine period was discovered nearby.
