Square S12 (Figs. 5, 6) yielded an agricultural terrace retaining wall (W12; exposed length 6.5, width 1.9 m) built in a north–south direction of medium-sized, coarsely hewn fieldstones. The wall was preserved to a height of three courses (0.8 m). Reddish brown soil mixed with small stones (L1200, L1202) was revealed above the bedrock to the east and west of the wall.
Square S13 (Figs. 7, 8) yielded an agricultural terrace retaining wall (W13; exposed length 4.2, width 1.65 m) built of two rows of coarsely hewn, small and medium fieldstones with a core made of hamra and smalls stones (L1301). It survived to a height of two courses (0.72 m). Soil mixed with small and medium stones (L1300, L1302) overlying the bedrock was exposed to the west and east of the wall.
Square S14 yielded an elliptical stone clearance heap (9 × 15 m, height 2.59 m; Fig. 9) set on a steep slope. It consists of small and medium stones, with brown soil and white gravel (L1400) between the stones. In an excavation conducted in the southeastern part of the heap, two parallel walls (W14, W15; Figs. 10, 11), which enclosed part of the stone heap, were uncovered 0.5 m apart. Wall 14 (exposed length 9 m, width 0.5 m) was built of small and medium fieldstones, some of which were roughly hewn and or unworked; it was preserved to a height of two courses (0.6 m). Wall 15 (exposed length 8 m, width 0.8 m) was built of small fieldstones and survived to a maximum height of three courses (0.67 m). Brown soil mixed with small and medium stones (L1402) was discerned west of W15, and soil containing small stones (L1403) was noted east of the wall.
Square W21 yielded an agricultural terrace retaining wall (W210; exposed length 4.21, width 1.08 m; Figs. 12, 13) running in a northeast–southwest direction. It was built of two rows of large fieldstones preserved to a height of three courses (0.68 m). Brown alluvium containing a small amount of non-diagnostic sherds (L2101–L2103) was revealed overlying the bedrock to the west, east and north of the wall.
Square S22 yielded an elliptical clearance heap (7.4 × 21.0 m, height 1. 8 m; Figs. 14, 15) composed of fieldstones of various sizes. Roughly hewn fieldstones were discovered in a trial trench (1.5 × 6.5 m) excavated by a backhoe in the center of the heap. In a trial square (2.5 × 3.5 m) that was subsequently opened, light brown soil mixed with fieldstones of various sizes and fragments of jars dating from the Herodian period (L2202; Fig. 15) was found. A retaining wall (W220; length 6.5 m, width 0.5 m; Fig. 16) revealed in the eastern part of the heap delineated that side of the stone pile. The wall was built of one row of roughly hewn medium-sized stones set on the bedrock and was preserved to a maximum height of three courses (0.28–0.78 m).
Square S24 yielded a round clearance heap (11.4 × 13.0 m, height 3.35 m; Fig. 17) composed of fieldstones of various sizes. Remains of a retaining wall (W240; length 3.55 m, width 1.35 m; Figs. 18, 19) built of two rows of large, hewn stones with a core of small fieldstones in between (L2403) were discovered in a trial trench (3.5 × 9.0 m) excavated by a backhoe in the center of the heap. The wall was poorly preserved and survived to a maximum height of five courses (1.42 m). A trial square (4.0 × 4.5 m) was opened southeast of W240, but no other walls were exposed.
Complex W31 is rectangular (c. 9 × 14 m) and bounded on the south and east by field walls (W310–W313; Figs. 20, 21) and on the west by agricultural terrace walls (the terrace walls were located outside the excavation and do not appear on the site plan). The walls of the complex were founded on bedrock. Wall 310 (length 10 m, width 4 m, height 0.9 m; Fig. 22) is a concentration of fieldstones that were placed in the middle of a bedrock surface; Walls 312 and 313 adjoined the concentration of stones. Wall 311 (length 5, width 1 m, height 0.71 m; Fig. 22) and W312 (length 5.4 m, width 1 m, height 0.6–1.0 m) were constructed of small and medium fieldstones. Wall 313 (length 7.3 m, width 0.3–0.9 m, height 1 m) was built of a row of roughly hewn stones. A narrow diagonal opening (width 0.72 m) was fixed between W311 and W312 (Fig. 22). This narrow opening suggests that the compound was used to hold livestock. A rectangular boulder with a cupmark (L3106; diam. 0.3 m, depth 0.14 m; Fig. 23) was discovered in the southern part of the compound; it may have served for watering flocks. A rectangular heap of cleared fieldstones (L3104; Fig. 24) was uncovered north of W310. This heap was enclosed from the west and north by W313. A layer of brown alluvium (L3100, L3101; Fig. 25) containing a meager amount of pottery, including fragments of Gaza ware dating from the seventeenth–nineteenth centuries CE, was excavated southwest of W310. Brown alluvium (L3102, L3103) mixed with stones was found south of W311.
Square S32 yielded an elliptical stone clearance heap (7.7 × 24.4 m, height 3.65 m; Fig. 26). A backhoe excavated two trial trenches in the heap, and an excavation square (4.3 × 6.0 m) was subsequently opened in the northern part of the heap; the excavation revealed brown soil (L3200; Fig. 27). A wall (W320; length 5.5 m, width 0.9 m; Fig. 28) was unearthed at the northern end of the square. It was built of a row of roughly hewn stones that enclosed the northern part of the stone heap.
Square W33 yielded a field wall (W330; exposed length 7.43 m, width 0.66 m; Figs. 29, 30) built of fieldstones and preserved to a height of three courses (0.82 m). Brown soil with medium and large collapsed stones was found to the south of the wall (L3301, L3302). Several fragments of Gaza ware dating from the seventeenth–nineteenth centuries CE were discovered in the soil.
