In the excavation one square and two half-squares (Fig. 2) were opened in which remains from the Persian and Ottoman periods were discovered.
In the western part of Square A, a floor made of small and medium-sized stones (L105; 1.30×1.85 m) into which a large fragment of a basalt grindstone was set (Fig. 3:10), was exposed. East of the floor were fragments of pottery vessels, including bowels (Fig. 3:1, 2) and a cooking pot (Fig. 3:4). Next to them, the scant remains of a wall (W6), built of dressed stones and oriented east–west (0.23 × 0.70 m), were preserved only a single course high. The pottery from this stratum included a storage jar rim (Fig. 3:6) and fragments of imported amphoras that dated to the Persian period.
Five secondary phases at the site were ascribed to the Ottoman period. The earliest phase (VI) consisted of a stone wall (W5) that was exposed in the eastern corner of Square A. It was built of a single course of two large stones (length 0.52 m) that were aligned north–south and sealed by two floors (Phase IV). On the western side of the wall, in a layer of brown soil, were pottery sherds that dated to the Ottoman period, along with a residual jar sherd from the Persian period (Fig. 3:5). This phase should probably be consolidated with Phase V to which a floor of small to medium-sized stones (Ll09; 2 × 2 m; Square C) and a hearth in the southern corner belonged. The floor, which was lower than the kurkar floors of Phase VI in Square A, was below Walls 2 and 3. This phase was also dated to the Ottoman period based on an associated bowl sherd (Fig. 3:3).
A structure built of small to medium-sized stones (W2, W3) in Square C should be ascribed to Phase IV. The building contained plaster collapse and was dated by ceramic finds, such as jars (Fig. 3:7, 9), to the Ottoman period. Also attributed to this phase were two crushed kurkar floors in Square A; the bottom one sealed an excavated channel.
Phase III, dated to the Late Ottoman period, was manifested in Square A by a stone and cement construction and floor tiles. In the northeastern part of Square B the corner of another building (0.84 × 1.78 m; W1), whose walls and floor were built of cement with a foundation of a small stone layer (7–8 cm), was discovered. In the northwestern part of the square was a foundation beam of reinforced concrete. Ottoman pottery sherds of a jar (Fig. 3:8) were found in its fill. In Square C a habitation level of gray soil that dated, together with Phases II and I, to the twentieth century was discovered.
