Site 1 (map ref. 218736/633471). A cistern on the road leading down into the village. Remains of a square construction are noted above its opening (Fig. 7).
Sites 2 and 4 (map ref. 218707/633522). The village spring and its outlet. A rock-hewn pool into which the water from the spring flows is located in the upper part of the channel. The pool consists of two parts; a southern part close to the outlet of the spring whence the water emanates, and a northern part that is filled with refuse today. The pool was repaired and sidewalks were built around it about a decade ago. In antiquity, a long tunnel was hewn parallel to the layer of marl for the purpose of increasing the flow of water. Today the ceiling of the tunnel is covered with stone slabs that maintain its shape (Fig. 8).
Site 3 (map ref. 218707/633545). A blocked opening of a cave on the eastern slope, possibly used for burial.
Site 5 (map ref. 218699/633556). A winepress hewn on a bedrock outcrop. The installation includes a treading floor whose plan was disrupted by later rock-cuttings and a collecting vat to its south, filled with debris and refuse (Figs. 9, 10). A basin (diam. 0.46 m) and a cupmark (diam. 0.14 m) are hewn nearby.
Site 6 (map ref. 218700/633568). A circular rock-cutting (diam. 0.44 m, depth c. 0.16 m) on a bedrock outcrop, perhaps a crushing installation.
Site 7 (map ref. 218702/633630). Building 218, whose walls survived to a substantial height. It is divided into numerous rooms and it surrounds a cave that was probably used for storage.
Site 8 (map ref. 218683/633674). Building 219, whose walls stand to a considerable height and dressed building stones were used in their construction. The building is divided into numerous rooms and remains of paint are preserved on the interior walls.
Site 9 (map ref. 219671/633649). Different size building stones were extracted from a quarry, situated alongside the main road of the village. This may be an ancient quarry because the building stones of the village’s houses are of a different rock texture and they probably originated from another quarry. A large basin (diam. 0.58 m) is hewn near the quarry and south of it is another basin; it is possible that other basins were destroyed when the road was made wider (Fig. 11).
Site 10 (map ref. 218642/633731) is the village mosque. The building, located alongside the road, is a single-story structure that is divided into two wings. The western wing was used as a mosque and has a mihrab in its south; the eastern wing was probably used for assemblies or as a madrasa. Four square stone pillars are visible around a cistern on the northern side of the mosque’s courtyard. The building is complete and it shows numerous repairs that were made to it; ancient stones with drafted margins, which are incorporated in the outer western wall, were apparently added when the wall was repaired (Figs. 12, 13).
Sites 11–13 (map ref. 218610/633779). Remains of a large building from the Ottoman period, resting on an ancient wall foundation (exposed length c. 10 m), which comprised stones with drafted margins (0.6×0.8 m, height 0.5–0.6 m). These are probably the remains of a Crusader building that is mentioned in several reports. The upper parts of the outer walls may have been rebuilt in later periods (Figs. 14–16).
Site 14 (map ref. 218661/633785). A dwelling cave next to a well-preserved building. The cave is divided into two spaces by a built wall and an olive press is located inside it (Fig. 17).
Site 15 (not marked on the map). A rock-hewn cave beneath Building 13; it may have been used for burial. The inside of the cave was enlarged by quarrying and its original plan cannot be discerned.
Site 16 (map ref. 218349/633691). A ruinous building and an adjacent courtyard surrounded by a low stone wall.
Site 17 (map ref. 218396/633686). A rock-hewn cave that has a round chamber (diam. c. 4 m) and its opening faces west.
Site 18 (map ref. 218593/633791). A retaining wall (height 6–7 m) on the steep slope, descending to the west below Sites 11–13. The wall is built of stones with drafted margins and has a well-built corner (Fig. 18). Ancient building stones are incorporated in the bottom courses.
Site 19 (map ref. 218506/633718). Two niches hewn in vertical bedrock outcrop, probably an installation for an olive-press beam. Potsherds from Iron Age II and the Mamluk period were collected (Fig. 19).
Site 20 (map ref.218470/633760). A terrace wall built of large fieldstones; some of the stones are dressed. Stones (0.6×0.8×1.0 m) that were apparently removed from the wall of an ancient building were integrated in the construction of the terrace; one of the stones has drafted margins.
Site 21 (map ref. 218350/633776). Cave.
Site 25 (map ref. 218937/634118). A heap of building stones on a slope.
Site 26 (map ref. 218948/634117). A terrace wall built of roughly hewn stones, combined with a few fieldstones (Fig. 20).
Site 27 (map ref. 218952/634108). A farming terrace, whose wall was thickened in several places and may have been used for construction.
Site 28 (map ref. 218956/634099). Terrace wall (preserved height 1 m). Repairs made to the wall, probably due to collapse, are evident.
Site 29 (map ref. 219077/634115). Farming terrace. A stone clearance heap at the edge of the terrace contains two fragments of a marble column, probably modern.
Site 30 (map ref. 218981/634110). Stone clearance heap.
Site 31 (map ref. 218891/634061). Corner of a building where stones with drafted margins and ancient stones of various sizes are incorporated (Fig. 21).
Site 32 (map ref. 218898/634060). Remains of a square structure built of large fieldstones, perhaps a watchman’s hut, next to a farming terrace.
Site 33 (map ref. 218884/634050). A large hall with cross-vaults, possibly predating the buildings in the village. The outer western wall was built in two phases (Figs. 22–24).
Site 34 (map ref. 218976/634292). Remains of a structure from the Crusader period built of dressed stones, some with drafted margins.
Site 35 (map ref. 219069–95/634310–31). Farming terraces with low retaining walls.
Site 36 (map ref. 219042–58/634426–57). Farming terraces with low retaining walls.
Site 37 (map ref. 218986–9016/634377–438). Farming terraces with low retaining walls.
The Crusader building at Sites 11–13 is most likely the remains of an estate whose fields were in the valley at the foot of the village. No evidence that corroborates the identification of the site with biblical Mey Neftoah has been found.
