Tel ‘Eran (c. 4 dunams) is located in the southern part of Ramot Menashe, and its southern slope descends toward Nahal Barqan. Five squares were opened along the southeastern fringes of the mound (Fig. 2), of which four were excavated. Remains of a building, a wall and an installation dating from the Byzantine period were discovered.
Pottery sherds that date from the Chalcolithic, Early Bronze I, Middle Bronze II, Late Bronze, Iron I–II and Byzantine periods were gathered in a survey previously performed on the tell (Gadot and Tepper 2009: Site 192
In 1962, excavations conducted in the western part of the mound revealed tombs from the Chalcolithic period, a building from the Iron Age I and II and fragments of pottery vessels from other periods (Giveon 1970; Fig. 1:1). An excavation carried out on the tell in 2002 yielded building remains and pits containing sherds from the Early and Middle Bronze Ages, as well as numerous pottery fragments dating from the Pottery Neolithic, Chalcolithic and Middle Bronze II periods and a small amount of sherds from the Iron Age II (Dagan and Eisenberg 2007
