Area C1
A square was excavated next to the wall of a modern building of which two walls have survived. One of the walls was constructed while the other was rock-cut. The floor consisted of cement; remains of the roof, made of wattle and daub, were found in the collapse. The remains of another modern building were found next to the building and above it. The buildings were apparently destroyed during the 1970s and earth was piled on top of them to a height of c. 2 m.
Area C2
A plastered cistern (L105; diam. 1.6 m, depth 2.0 m; Figs. 1–3) with steps (width 0.4 m) was excavated in this area. Based on its shape, it is dated to the Byzantine period.
Area C3
A quarry was exposed in this area (Fig. 4). Building stones were removed utilizing a detachment method known from regions where limestone is indigenous; however, this quarry is located in an area where the rock is a conglomerate consisting of basalt and scoria. The potsherds collected from the area range in date from the Byzantine period until the modern era. The quarry, which is similar to the one discovered near Afiq, is dated by its quarrying technique to the Byzantine period.
