1999 Seasons
Six squares (1–5, 10) were opened in the vicinity of the Mamluk-period building that was exposed during the last season (1998). Three construction phases, two from Mamluk period (I, II) and one from the Byzantine–Early Islamic periods (III), were discerned.
Stratum I (The Mamluk Period). Scant remains of irregular and carelessly constructed limestone walls were discovered close to surface. The walls were preserved one–two courses high and did not constitute an obvious plan. Sections of small and medium-sized stone floors abutted the walls. Numerous ṭabuns were uncovered; in one square there were five of them, three dug directly into other two (Fig. 1). Ther ceramic finds dated to the Mamluk period and included, among others, two vessels that could be restored, a jar and a large basin with handles and a flat base that was sunk into  the top pf a St. II wall. Several bronze coins from the Mamluk period were collected on surface and from St. I.
Stratum II (The Mamluk Period). This was the primary layer at the site, which had two phases. The remains of a large, well-planned building were attributed to the early phase. It was constructed from limestone blocks (wall thickness 0.6–0.7 m) and included an entry foyer, a large room and courtyard (width c. 7 m). A water cistern with a rectangular opening that was filled with debris (Fig. 2) was located in the courtyard; it was not excavated due to danger and collapse. Doorways in the walls of the building were equipped with well-dressed stone thresholds, sockets for door hinges and recesses for bolts. Parts of the iron lock were found near one of the doorways. The floors were mainly of whitish plaster. Carbonized wood remains rested on the floor of the large room, indicating the structure had been devastated by fire. The building contained Mamluk-period finds, including fragments of pottery vessels, such as jugs, cooking bowls and cooking pots, a deformed glass goblet and many iron nails. Noteworthy was a large iron tool with burnt wooden handle that was probably used in farming.
The building continued to exist in the late phase and unerwent alterations, including a stone wall that partitioned the large room into two, the blocking of  entrances and the raising of floors, which in this phase were partly of stone and plaster. A small circular installation was attributed to this phase; it yielded a broken jug that contanied a lump rusted iron, which was composed of nails, a ring and horseshoe. The use of the courtyard and the water cistern continued in this phase without any changes. 
Stratum III (The Byzantine and Early Islamic Periods). Probes conducted below the floors of St. II revealed a very thick layer of hard, dark brown soil fill that contained a few fragments of mixed pottery from the Byzantine and Early Islamic periods. At one location a small pebble floot segment was noted, overlaid with soil fill the consisted of numerous potsherds and several bronze coins from the 3rd–4th centuries CE. 
2000 Season
Eighteen squares (A–R) were excavated and are described below from east to west; most of them located west of the Mamluk-period building.
Squares  M–R were in the vicinity of the Mamluk- period building and their stratigraphy corresponded to the one from the previous seasons. abuns and meager remains of walls, which had partly irregular lines were close to surface, were attributed to St. I, as well as long broad wall (exposed length c. 20 m) and small-stone paved floors that abutted the walls. Most of the ceramic finds dated to the Mamluk-period and the rest—to the Ottoman period. The wall in St. I directly superposed the walls St. II occasionally, the St. II walls were reused. The orientation of the walls was similar in both strata and it seems that only a short hiatus separated St. I from II
Remains of a room (witdth c. 7 m) that belonged to the large, well-planned building from the Mamluk period, excavated in previous seasons (Fig. 3), were ascribed to St. II. A large square column base was discerned in the middle of the room, as well as the remains of an arch the supported the ceiling. When the arch collapsed the voussoirs fell in a straight line between the coloumn base and one of the walls. Restorable potsherds were not detected in this layer throughout this season an it was difficult to discern any secondary phases in the structure. The finds in this stratum dated to the Mamluk period.
The excavation reached St. III only in several of the probes that were dug below the large Mamluk-period building. A deep layer of soil fill, without any building remains, were noted. The fill contained mixed ceramic finds from the Early Islamic and Mamluk periods.
Squares M–N were adjacent to the west of the large Mamluk-period building. The major find was a circular limekiln filled with crumbing and partially burnt stones, as well as a few pottery fragments from the Mamluk-period. The kiln probably postdated St. II and may have been used to burn stones from the large building of this stratum.
Squares A–L extended west of Sqs M and N and had no remains from the Mamluk period (Strata I–II). At a depth of 0.5 m below surface the meager remains of walls, sections of  floors and abuns that were damaged by plowing and theft of stones, were unearthern. The best state of preservation was discerned in Sqs F–H, wherein sections of stone pavement and  wall remains were standing two–three coursed high (Fig. 4). A single building phase was noted in Sqs A–D, whereas in Sqs F–H, and particularly in Sqs K–L, two construction phases were recorded. In each of the the squares remains were ina dark layer of alluvium the was overlaying a fill of amra soil, devoid of finds. Most of ceramic finds dated to the Early Islamic period (9th–10th centuries CE). Several bronze coins that mostly dated to the Byzantine and Early Islamic periods were recovered from loci, whose stratigraphic affiliaion was unclear.
The excavation at the site revealed a well-planned and extensively built-up area from the Mamluk period (Stratum II). Scant building remains and ceramic finds from the Byzantine and Early Islamic periods were located in the west. Potshreds clusters from the Byzantine period were traced in region east of the excavation areas was not excavated, but was nevertheless damaged in several places. It therefore seems that the extent of the settlement at Khirbat Burin was larger than originally thought.
