Four cist graves were exposed during examination of the lot’s northern section. The southern ends of the east–west oriented graves were destroyed (Fig. 1). The graves dug into a kurkar layer, c. 1 m below surface, were covered with a fill of modern construction debris.
Tomb 1 (L17) was survived by its northern wall (W20, length 1.6 m) that was built of medium-sized fieldstones. An irregular heap of human bones was uncovered to its south.
Tomb 2 (L19; width 0.6 m, length 1.5 m, depth 0.6 m), east of and adjacent to Tomb 1, was not excavated. Its top was partially destroyed and an empty cavity was discerned in its eastern part. The walls of the tomb were built of different-sized fieldstones.
Tomb 3 (L16; inside width 0.5 m) was c. 15 m east of Tomb 2. Its northern wall (W15) was preserved four courses high (height 0.6 m, length 1.1 m). The tomb contained a human skeleton, consisting of a skull, with vertebrae and hand bones to its east, as well as a large quantity of glass beads.
Tomb 4 (L18; inside width 0.8 m) was located c. 11 m east of Tomb 3 and was the only tomb built of medium-sized, semi-hewn stones (0.3 × 0.3 m), together with small fieldstones. The northern wall (W21; length 2.2 m) was preserved four courses high (height 0.75 m) and its southeastern corner was destroyed. Human bones were scattered around the tomb.
The tombs may have belonged to the el Qubeiba cemetery that was located in the area during the Late Islamic period.
