The level that yielded the remains is an anthropogenic level, composed of brown friable loess sediment, mixed with light colored ash (thickness 0.2–0.6 m). The original thickness of the level is unclear since its upper part was removed during works at the site. This level was founded on top of a thick layer of loess, rich in chalk concretions. A series of shallow pits scattered throughout the area and a habitation level paved with wadi pebbles were exposed. The pits were wide at the top and tapered toward the bottom (average diam. 1 m, depth 0.5 m; Fig. 1). They contained knapped wadi pebbles, flint artifacts and numerous potsherds. Some of the pits contained burnt, loaf-shaped mud bricks. A habitation level (20 sq m; thickness 0.25 m) that consisted of small flat wadi pebbles and descended to the northwest was exposed in the middle of the excavation area. The pebble layer was founded on top of a wide shallow pit (diam. of opening 1.5, depth 0.5 m) that contained dark friable sediment, a few pebbles, many potsherds, worked limestone and a few flints. Two concentrations of large angular fieldstones, probably the remains of walls, were discovered on top of the habitation level. One concentration was in the southern part of the level and the second—in its western part. The southern concentration was elongated (c. 1 m) and consisted of two rows of parallel stones. The western concentration was circular and consisted of elongated stone slabs. It is possible that the stone concentrations and the pebble surface were the remains of a building.
