The area of the square was leveled with soil and large stones to the height of the top of a large boulder that was exposed in its middle. The remains of walls, floors and a tabun were discovered on top of the leveled surface. Part of a wall (W1) was discovered in the northwestern corner of the square. It was apparently the outer eastern wall of a building that was not excavated. A wall (W4) was exposed in the south of the square and next to it was a stone pavement (F1); both probably belonged to another building, which was mostly situated south of the square. Three stones in the northeastern corner of the square were probably part of another wall (W3) that extended beyond the excavation area. Floor bedding (L104) was discovered in the center of the square, which may have been used as a covered courtyard, as well as a few remains of a flagstone pavement with small stones between them. Several fragments of pottery vessels were discovered on the bedding and the pavement remains. A tabun (L106; Fig. 3) was exposed on the floor bedding in the center of the square, with sheep and goat bones gathered nearby.
A large number of ceramic finds was collected in the excavation, mostly dating to Iron II (1000–750 BCE) and including bowls (Fig. 4:1–4), cooking pots (Fig. 4:6–9) and jars (Fig. 4:11–17). A few of the ceramic finds dated to other periods, including a cooking pot from the Late Bronze Age (1500–1200 BCE; Fig. 4:10), a cooking pot from Iron I (1200–1000 BCE; Fig. 4:5), a mortarium from the Persian or Hellenistic periods (Fig. 4:18), as well as potsherds from the Roman and Byzantine periods.
The time period of the exposed settlement layer in the excavation—Iron II—and the archaeozoological finds discovered near the tabun, which included bones of ritually pure animals, show that the settlement may have been associated with the nearby city of Dan. During this period, Dan had prospered, probably following the establishment of the administrative center of the Kingdom of Israel in the north of the country. Based on the ceramic finds, it seems that a settlement was located on the hill, as of Iron I, and perhaps even from the Late Bronze Age, until the Persian period. After a hiatus the settlement was re-established in the Roman and Byzantine periods, possibly in connection with the city of Banias.
