A rectangular excavation area (5 × 16 m) was opened. A wall (terrace? 14 m long, 0.5 m wide; Fig. 1) built of soft qirton stones without bonding material and preserved a single course high (0.4 m) was discovered. Fragments of jars from Middle Bronze Age IIB (Fig. 2:1–5), as well as from the Iron Age, including a bowl (Fig. 2:8), a krater (Fig. 2:9) and cooking pots (Fig. 2:10, 11), were found. After dismantling the wall, more fragments of bowls from the Iron Age (Fig. 2:6, 7) were discovered in the fill beneath it, enabling to date the wall to this period.
