Building remains that apparently belonged to the Crusader-period fortress were exposed in the excavation area (2.5 × 9.0 m; Fig. 1). A wall segment (W13; length 7.8 m, width 0.9 m) built of ashlar stones was uncovered. A triangular-shaped construction that consisted of ashlar stones with a core of debesh and hydraulic mortar was built adjacent to the eastern side of the wall, facing the sea. The earthen fill above the building remains contained potsherds from the Ottoman period, including bowls (Fig. 2:1, 2) and a cooking pot (Fig. 2:6). The fill surrounding the remains included a glazed bowl from the Early Islamic period (Fig. 2:3), as well as bowls (Fig. 2:4, 5), cooking pots (Fig. 2:7, 8) and jugs (Fig. 2:9–11) from the Ottoman period.
Wall 13 appears to have been the eastern wall of a northeastern corner tower in the Crusader fortress and the adjacent construction to its east served as a glacis and a breakwater (Fig. 3; Y. Stepansky, Qadmoniot 127, 2004, p. 54 [Hebrew]).
