Stratum 1. A layer of heavy brown soil (L107; thickness c. 0.3 m) was discovered in the northern third of the excavation square. It included the remains of a wall (W110; Fig. 2), generally oriented east–west, which was built of a row of boulders with a few small and medium-sized fieldstones in-between. A few potsherds dating to the Early and Middle Bronze Ages were discovered in between the stones of the wall, indicating that this was a retaining wall of a building or a farming terrace that was built at the earliest in the Middle Bronze Age, but probably no later than the Late Bronze Age.  
Stratum 2. Part of an installation (L102, L106) was exposed in the western side of the square. It was bounded by walls (W103, W112) on the east and north, and its continuation to the south and west extended beyond the excavation area. Two superposed industrial mosaic floors (average size of tesserae 2.0 x 2.5 cm; Fig. 3) were identified in the installation, indicating two phases of operation as a treading floor in a winepress. After the lower floor (L106) was damaged and broken, possibly as a result of a ground tremor, a white plaster bedding mixed with white tesserae (L111; thickness 0.1 m) was installed above it and supported the upper mosaic floor (L102). Fragments of pottery vessels dating from the Early Bronze Age, to and including the Early Islamic period, were found on top of Floor 102.
Wall 103 (exposed length 4.5 m, max. width 0.8 m) and W112 (exposed length 1 m, width 0.6 m) were built of fieldstones with carefully dressed stones incorporated in-between and reinforced with gray mortar and plaster. The foundation trenches of the two walls, dug into the ground, were devoid of archaeological finds. Several potsherds from the foundation trench (L105) were dated to the Middle and Late Bronze Ages, but the mosaic floor indicates that the installation and its walls were probably built in the Byzantine period.

Stratum 3. The remains of the treading floor were overlain with an accumulation of soil, containing small fieldstones and potsherds from the Bronze and Iron Ages, and the Roman and Byzantine periods (L101; thickness 0.37 m). A wall (W109; exposed length 2.5 m, width 0.5 m) oriented north–south was built into this layer. Fragments of pottery vessels from the Byzantine period were found while dismantling W109, indicating that the wall was not later than this period.

Stratum 4. The remains of the treading floor and W109 were covered with an accumulation of fieldstones and a small amount of gray soil (L100) that contained numerous fragments of pottery vessels from all the known periods at the tell, as well as a few potsherds from the Mamluk period and a fragment of a pipe from the Ottoman period. It seems that this deposit was either swept here after the Byzantine period from the middle of the tell, located east of the excavation area, or was brought over as part of the modern earthworks.
