Open Mosque (Figs. 2, 3). A square building (L52; 1.75 × 2.00 m) whose four walls (W290–W293; width 0.4 m) were built of small fieldstones and preserved a single course high (0.2 m) was exposed. It seems that the walls were originally constructed to a height of two–three courses, without a roof. A semicircular mihrab (c. 0.50 × 0.75 m) was installed in the middle of the southern wall (W292). The small dimensions of the mosque indicate that it was used for prayer by one or two people. An area cleared of stones was discerned to the northwest of the mosque and three cairns were observed to its north.
Square Building (Fig. 4). The remains of a square building (3.8 × 4.9 m), which had been damaged in the past by mechanical equipment, were excavated. The walls (W294–W297; width 0.6 m, preserved height 0.3 m) were built of two rows of stones, bonded with earth mixed with gravel. The building’s entrance (width c. 0.6 m) was probably set in the southern wall (W294). The collapsed walls reached a height of 0.65 m above the floor (L51), which was composed of tamped earth with spots of ash above it. Potsherds dating to the Early Islamic period were discovered on the floor, including the base of a jug (Fig. 5:1), as well as a fragment of a glass vessel handle that probably belonged to a juglet from the Byzantine period. Olive and plum pits were found on the floor in the corner of the building. The collapsed walls (L57) were excavated around the building and a hearth (L58) was near the building’s southwestern corner.
Round Building (Figs. 6, 7). The structure was built of fieldstones and wadi pebbles set around a dugout pit (W285; diam. 3.5 m, depth 0.51 m). Two occupation levels (lower – L55, upper – L53) with ash and charcoal above them were discerned. A deposit between the occupation levels (L54) consisted of eolian soil and wadi soil that was washed into the dugout pit.
