The single square was excavated to a maximum depth of 1.3 m, down to the extremely uneven bedrock. The minimal finds consisted of a flagstone floor section (L940, L942 and L946) and the semicircular contour of a mud-brick installation (L947; external diam. c. 2.5 m), built directly on bedrock. The potsherds retrieved from the floor and the installation suggested that these remains should be dated to the very end of Iron IIC, possibly the sixth century BCE (Stratum VIII?).

The limited archaeological remains in Area M may be indicative of a very sparse occupation at the site, at the end of Iron IIC. Intensive habitation levels of Iron IIA-B (Strata X, IX), uncovered in Areas G and W, indicate that the site was destroyed and abandoned toward the end of the eighth century BCE. The data from Area M is very scanty and it would be rash to interpret the few Iron IIC (?) potsherds as proof for even a limited occupation revival of the site.
