Area A. The single square opened in this area revealed a rectangular structure, oriented northeast–southwest (4.20 × 4.55 m; Figs. 1, 2). Its walls (width c. 0.5 m), preserved six courses high (0.65 m), were built of kurkar stones, some of which were dressed. The entrance to the building (width 0.6 m; Fig. 3) was set in the northeastern wall. The structure’s interior was partitioned by a wall (W8) built of a single row of stones, which was probably erected during a later phase. Remains of a kurkar-slab pavement were discovered north and northwest of the building. The potsherds found in the structure included a bowl (Fig. 4:3), a krater (Fig. 4:19), a lid (Fig. 4:7) and cooking pots (Fig. 4: 9, 10, 12), dating to the Early Islamic period (tenth–eleventh centuries CE).


Area B. Meager remains of a previously destroyed building (Fig. 5), which consisted of two sections of walls, a segment of a pavement, collapse and concentrations of ash, were uncovered. The pottery vessels that mostly dated to the Early Islamic period included bowls (Fig. 4:5, 6), a cooking pot (Fig. 4:11), jugs (Fig. 4:14, 15) and a krater (Fig. 4:18). The Middle Ages ceramics consisted of bowls (Fig. 4:1, 2, 4, 8), a cooking pot (Fig. 4:13) and a juglet (Fig. 4:16). Pottery fragments, ranging from the Chalcolithic (Fig. 4:17) until the Ottoman periods, were also discovered.
