Three areas (A–C; 24 sq m; Fig. 1) were opened in the excavation and flint implements and pebbles were found.
An identical geological sequence, composed of three units (Fig. 2), was exposed in all three areas. The upper Unit I is grumusol soil that was removed by mechanical equipment prior to the excavation. Unit II is a clayey paleosol below Unit I that contains chalk concentrates and gray-brown manganese. It was deposited on top of the lower Unit III, which is a paleosol soil that consists of red hamra that contains chalk concentrates. The chalk concentrates in the two units stem from sediments that have been washed after the soils were deposited.
Between the two paleosol units was a habitation level that contained flint implements, pebbles and a few bones.
The density of the finds in the three areas varied. The density in Area A (15.5 sq m), the largest area, was as high as sixty items per square meter; in Area C, it was fifteen items and in Area B—only six items per square meter.
The flint industry in the three areas is similar and mostly consists of flake production. Most of the flint items are in a fine state of preservation. They are fresh and bear no signs of wear, although some have traces of patina on them. The origin of the raw material was not identified; however, based on the shape of the pebbly cores it appears to have been collected from the wadi channels.
The flint industry is complex and includes at least three technologies. The first is simple and minimalistic, involving the production of 2–5 flakes, mostly preliminary items that were not knapped from hierarchal striking platforms. The second is more complicated and includes numerous knappings from discoidal cores that have a peripheral or semi-peripheral striking platform. It should be noted that one sequence of production in this manner was restored (Fig. 3). The third technology involves the production of elongated flakes from semi-pyramidal cores that have a smooth striking platform.
The types of tools at the site included retouched flakes, scrapers, awls, denticulates and notches, double tools and burins. With the exception of three chopping tools, no tools that can be considered as fossil directeurs were found at the site.
The nature of the implements, like the density, varies in the three areas. Noticeably more industrial debitage exists in Area A, whereas in Areas B and C the emphasis is on cores and tools. Furthermore, Area A provides evidence that fire was used—forty two burnt items were found, although no hearths were identified. Hardly any bones (N=2) were discovered and the primary reason for this seems to be the post-deposition processes that altered the soil composition and damaged the bones.
