An area (2.5 × 10.0 m) was opened, revealing three strata (Fig. 1).
Stratum I (Fig. 2). Remains of a north–south aligned wall (W693) that was built of a single row of ashlar stones were discovered. The wall was founded on a layer of fill, which contained a few potsherds, including bowls (Fig. 4:1, 2) and jars (Fig. 4:3–5) that dated to the Mamluk and Ottoman periods.
Stratum II (Fig. 2). An ashlar-built wall (W694), surviving by two courses in a north–south direction, was exposed. A stone floor (L697) abutted its eastern side and to its south were remains of a floor of crushed chalk (L692). The fill in the wall contained a few potsherds, including bowls (Fig. 4:6–9) that dated to the Mamluk period.
Stratum III (Fig. 3). Three courses of an ashlar-built wall (W695), oriented north–south, were preserved. Sections of a floor (L699) that consisted of large stones were uncovered on the western side of the wall. The fill above and below the floor contained a few potsherds that dated to the Byzantine period, including a bowl (Fig. 4:10) and jars (Fig. 4:11, 12).
