The site was surveyed in the past (C. Epstein and S. Gutman. In M. Kochavi ed. 1972. Judaea, Samaria and the Golan Archaeological Survey 1967–1968. Jerusalem. Site 260; M. Hartal. 1989. Northern Golan Heights Survey: The Archaeological Survey as a Source of Regional History. Qazrin. Site 2:14, pp. 41–42). A number of buildings were noted on a hilltop and Iturean potsherds dating to the Hellenistic (third–first centuries BCE) and Roman  (first–fourth centuries CE) periods were collected. The site is one of a cluster of Iturean settlement sites located in the northern Golan region; not far from the site are four other sites, among them Kh. Zemel (M. Hartal. 2005. Land of the Ituraeans. Qazrin. Pp. 12–60). Prior to the construction of a waste water treatment facility to the south of the site (2003), soundings that determined its western and southern boundaries were conducted .
One square was excavated along the southeastern fringes of the site (Figs. 1, 2). The remains of two terrace walls were discovered; the first (W3), probably the earlier of the two, was built of small to medium-sized stones and soil fill that contained a few potsherds. Afterward, Terrace Wall 1 (Fig. 3), which was more massive and founded on bedrock along the lower part of the slope, was built. This terrace wall survived to a height of c. 1.2 m.
A few potsherds were collected, among them jars and bowls that dated to the Hellenistic period.
