During June 1998, an excavation was conducted in Kafr Misr (Permit No. A-2879, map ref. 23910–1/72795–6), prior to the construction of a residential building. The excavation, undertaken on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority and underwritten by Ahmad Zu‘abi, was directed by A. Mokary (photography).
An excavation square was opened and a modern concrete floor was exposed; it was covered with tabun ashes from the modern village. The excavation reached the basalt bedrock and no ancient remains were discovered.
