A single square was excavated, at first by means of a backhoe and afterwards manually (Fig. 1). At a depth of 1.2 m, roughly-hewn covering stones (0.65 × 0.90 m) belonging to at least three cist tombs were exposed; the tombs were not excavated (Figs. 2, 3). In the northern part of the square a sewage pipe was exposed that had damaged one of the tombs and shifted some of the stones that covered it. The fill layer above the tombs yielded a cooking pot from the Roman period (Fig. 4:1), a bowl (Fig. 4:2) and a krater (Fig. 4:3) from the Byzantine period, and bowls (Fig. 4:4, 5) and a krater (Fig. 4:6) from the Mamluk period.
