Six and a half excavation squares were opened, exposing the remains of wall foundations and sections of floors. These were part of a farmhouse from the Late Ottoman period and the time of the British Mandate. Wall foundations (W10, W11) made of medium-sized river pebbles founded on sandy loess were revealed in the western part of the excavation (Sqs D8/9–F9). Evidently, the wall was built of bricks, which did not survive. A section of another wall foundation (W13) was exposed to the east. A floor made of tamped clay (L103, L119, L120, L122) abutted the walls. Part of a pit (L116, L121), probably dug when the farmhouse was still in use, was dug into the floor. Stones mixed with modern objects were uncovered in the southwestern square (D8).
A section of the farm’s courtyard was revealed in the eastern part of the excavation (Sqs G8, H8). Its floor consisted of tamped clay (L109, L113, L115). An irregularly shaped refuse pit partially exposed in the courtyard (L114; Fig. 3) contained ash, pottery sherds and a rifle cartridge that probably dates from World War I. Part of an installation made of tamped clay and small stones (W12; Fig. 4) was also exposed.
Fragments of gray Gaza Ware vessels found in the excavation date from the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century CE. These include plain bowls with carinated rims (Fig. 5:1–3), a krater with a plain rim decorated with ribbing (Fig. 5:4), jugs with a ridge on the neck (Fig. 5:5, 6), jars with a tall neck (Fig. 5:7–11) and a long-stemmed tobacco pipe (Fig. 5:12). A limestone pounding vessel (Fig. 6) was also found.
Remains of a farmhouse built near the water of Nahal Ofaqim were exposed in the excavation. The structure consisted of rooms and an open courtyard, and was used in the Late Ottoman period and during the British Mandate.
