Stratum I (Early Islamic period). Most of the excavation area was covered with a layer of fill that consisted of light color earth (L3). The layer contained numerous potsherds from the Early Islamic period, including an open cooking pot (Fig. 3:1) and a holemouth jar with a thickened rim (Fig. 3:2). A floor bedding of medium-sized fieldstones (L10; Fig. 4) was also ascribed to this stratum.
Stratum II (Early Roman period). This stratum comprised a layer of light brown clay soil, similar to mud-brick material, which was found in non-contiguous sections mostly in the northern part of the excavation area (L5; Fig. 5). Many potsherds from the Early Roman period were found, including a Type 3A Kefar Hananya cooking pot (Fig. 3:3), jars with a high neck (Fig. 3:4–6) and a pared lamp (Fig. 3:7).
Stratum III was a layer of dark brown soil (L7) that contained a very large number of potsherds from the Early Roman period, as well as from the Late Hellenistic period, including a cooking pot (Fig. 3:8) and a jar (Fig. 3:9).
The strata were damaged by later pits (Loci 2, 8) that were probably used as septic pits and contained ancient buildings stones together with modern material. Potsherds from the Late Hellenistic period, Intermediate Bronze Age and Early Bronze Age were found throughout the excavation area, probably alluding to the presence of settlement strata from these periods. It was not possible to verify this theory because the excavation was suspended due to the flooding of the subterranean water level.
