A half square (2.5 × 5.0 m) was opened on the side of the cliff and a repair of fieldstones bonded with cement was exposed where bedrock had collapsed. A hewn bedrock ledge (width 0.6 m, height 1.2 m; Fig. 1), upon which the outer face of a wall had apparently been constructed, was uncovered. Pottery vessels from the thirteenth century CE were excavated at the foot of the bedrock ledge and below the sea level, including imported bowls (Fig. 2:1, 2) and a cooking krater (Fig. 2:5). Within the kurkar ridge, a square was opened in the center (3.5 × 3.5 m) of a hewn cavity, revealing Crusader-period pottery from the thirteenth century CE, including imported bowls (Fig. 2:3, 4) and cooking vessels (Fig. 2:6–8).
