Two squares, c. 8 m apart, were opened on a rocky slope in an area where numerous excavations had previously been conducted (Fig. 1; ‘Atiqot 39:49–82). Two walls (W201, W202) that formed a corner were discovered in the eastern square (A; 2.5 × 5.0 m). The walls, preserved a single course high, were built of medium-sized fieldstones (0.4 × 0.4 × 0.5 m) and were founded on bedrock. The pottery fragments recovered from the fill near the walls indicate that they were used in the Mamluk period (Fig. 2:1, 2). A wall (W200; exposed length 3.5 m) in the western square (B; 3 × 5 m) was oriented north–south and extended beyond the limits of the excavation area. The wall, built of ashlars and preserved a single course high, was founded on bedrock. South of the wall was a stone quarry, in which two bedrock ledges (L104, L108) were discerned. Jar fragments (Fig. 2: 3) dating to the Byzantine period were retrieved from the fill near the wall and within the quarry.
