Two excavation areas were opened, Area A in the northwest and Area B in the southeast.
Area A. A hewn winepress that consisted of a square treading floor (L105; 2.4 × 2.4 m, depth 0.5 m; Figs. 1, 2), a channel (L106) and a collecting vat (L107) was discovered. Two cupmarks (L101—diam. 0.85 m, L102—diam. 0.5 m; Figs. 3, 4) were exposed east of the winepress.
Area B. A rounded structure built of large fieldstones was exposed on the hillside. It was founded on bedrock (L110; diam. 6.2 m; Figs. 5, 6) and was probably the base of a field tower, possibly a watchman’s hut. The structure was enclosed on its southern and eastern sides by a wall (W112; length 17 m, width 0.5–0.6 m; Fig. 7), built of various size fieldstones and preserved a single course high. The space created between W112 and the base of the tower (L113; width c. 1.5 m) was filled with small stones mixed with brown earth that possibly meant to support the tower.
The foundations of a building were exposed southeast of W112; it was only partially excavated due to safety precautions. The building was constructed from fieldstones and consisted of a northern (L128) and southern (L129) cells; it seems to have been used as a field tower or a shelter for shepherds.
A few worn potsherds that could not be dated were recovered from the excavation.
