The cave (length 6 m, depth 5 m, height c. 2 m) was cleaned of the soil and debris that had sealed the breach in the eastern wall. Stone collapse that partially derived from a natural opening in the roof was in the east of the cave and an east–west alignment of roof stone collapse was in the center (Fig. 2). The soft bedrock floor of the cave was reached after excavating c. 0.3 m layer of soft brownish limey soil. All the seven pottery vessels from the cave were found in its rear end. These consisted of the three pottery vessels, a bowl with handles (Fig. 3), a jug (Fig. 4) and a dipper juglet (Fig. 5), collected by the antiquities inspector, as well as four more vessels, including a carinated bowl with continuous incisions around its rim (Fig. 6), a nearly-complete medium-sized jar, a red-slipped juglet with a two-strand handle, found upside-down and an oil lamp.

The original entrance shaft (width 0.5–0.8 m, depth 1.15 m) was natural and led into the northeastern part of the cave, close by to the breach in the cave’s eastern wall (Fig. 7). This was the only place in the cave where the brownish limey soil had accumulated all the way to the cave’s ceiling.

Toward the end of the excavation, after the stone debris was cleared from the cave, a depression in the middle of the bedrock floor was noted. It contained osteological remains, in situ, including two human skulls of an adult and a child, found upside-down together with several long bones not in articulation. Since the excavation of the depression was not completed due to interference of Ultra-Orthodox factions, it was difficult to determine whether the bones were originally interred as primary burial, or were disturbed by post-burial activities.
