A sloping corridor that was not excavated led to the opening of the cave, which was set in the northern side. The rectangular opening had rounded corners and the threshold was c. 0.2 m higher than the cave’s floor (c. 4.5 sq m; max. height 1.1 m; Fig. 2). The cave was elliptical and had a dome-like ceiling. The walls were meticulously hewn and apparently, a broad mallet was used for quarrying. The floor was not leveled and two shallow pits were cut in it. The cave, which was probably plundered in the past, contained fragments of jars (Fig. 3:1, 2), dipper juglets (Fig. 3:3, 5, 7) and piriform juglets (Fig. 3:4, 6, 8, 9) that dated to the Middle Bronze Age. The few bones in the cave were returned to their initial location without being analyzed by an anthropologist. The cave was sealed and covered with soil at the conclusion of the excavation. Its discovery is important since only a few burial caves from this period are known in the vicinity of the City of David in Jerusalem.
