Stratum III. Two walls (W11, width 0.44 m; W13, width 0.5 m) constructed from dressed limestone were exposed. A floor of dressed stones, some of which were in secondary use, abutted the walls. A circular kurkar stone that was probably a ballista stone was lying on the floor. The finds included a few non-diagnostic glass fragments, a base and three LRW bowl rims (Fig. 2) and a few murex mollusks and shells.  


Stratum II. A wall (W10, width 0.65 m) of dressed limestone was uncovered. Abutting the wall on the west was a floor of beaten earth and small stones that overlaid the floor of Stratum III. The finds included seven body fragments of cooking pots and two handles of storage jars, probably from the Byzantine period.


Stratum I. A wall (W12, width 0.35 m) built of fieldstones abutted W10 from Stratum II on the west, which was lined with fieldstones prior to the construction of W12. This stratum is dated to the Early Islamic period (seventh century CE) based on the ceramic finds, which included ten body fragments and four storage jar handles that were retrieved from the fill amongst the stones of the wall.
