Square A
A terrace wall that extended along the slope (W2) and an enclosure wall (W4; Figs. 1–3), which was perpendicular to it and delimited a cultivation plot, were exposed. The wide walls, founded on bedrock, were built of medium and large fieldstones. A lump of lime was placed on the corner that was destroyed. A cluster of medium fieldstones, probably a collapse (L13), was overlaying bedrock along the eastern side of W4.
A few fragments of pottery vessels from the Late Roman period were found atop bedrock surface. Fragments of pottery vessels that dated to the beginning of the twentieth century CE (Rashaya el-Fukhar and Gaza wares), to the Late Roman and Byzantine periods and three fragments with band slip decoration from Early Bronze IB were found on surface.
Square B
The northeastern corner of a modern building was exposed and c. 1 m north of it, at the bottom of the slope, was a retaining wall, founded on bedrock (Fig. 4). Part of a plow was discovered on top of a thick white plaster floor segment and alongside it were a chisel, an axe head and rifle cartridges.
