The removal of layers of modern fill (L101, L102) revealed dressed building stones that had collapsed (L103) above a stone pavement built of flat fieldstones (Fig. 3). The style of the exposed building stones resembled that of the houses of the Arab village of Saʽsaʽ, some of which still stand in the kibbutz. Among the stone collapse were fragments of pottery vessels from the Rashaya el-Fukhar pottery workshop in southern Lebanon, dated to the Ottoman and British Mandate periods. These pottery sherds and the building stones uncovered in the collapse indicate the date of the structure.
