Three squares (4 × 4 m) were opened 10 m apart and four probe trenches (c. 1 × 4 m) were dug by a backhoe close to the squares. A layer of gray-dark brown alluvium, containing potsherds from the Early, Intermediate and Middle Bronze Ages and the Roman-Byzantine periods, as well as several flint implements, was discovered in the squares. Potsherds and flint implements were found above a surface layer that overlaid the alluvium layer. The middle and western parts of the excavation were covered with modern refuse.
A layer of alluvium was exposed in the probe trenches at a depth of c. 1 m. It overlaid a layer of sterile reddish clay soil at a depth of c. 3.0–3.5 m. Bedrock was uncovered below the clay layer in one of the trenches.
No remains of a building, settlement or occupation layer were discovered. The potsherds and flint implements were probably swept from the surrounding sites unto the alluvium layer.
