Fragments of pottery vessels dating to the Hellenistic and Early Roman periods, including a Hellenistic store jar (Fig. 3:1), and a bronze coin dating to the second century CE, which was struck in the mint of Caesarea (IAA 136608), were found on the level.
Square 2. A habitation level (L106) that contained wadi pebbles, numerous potsherds, animal bones (mostly cattle) and non-diagnostic glass fragments.
Square 3. A habitation level (L119) that included a cluster of small stones and wadi pebbles, some of which bore remains of gray mortar, was exposed. Numerous non-diagnostic potsherds and a bronze coin from the fourth–fifth centuries CE (IAA 136611) were found
Square 4. The hamra in the northern part of the square, c. 0.15 m below the surface (L109; Fig. 4), contained a fragment of a zir jar (Fig. 5), dating to the Early Islamic period (ninth century CE).
Remains of a massive wall (W125) built of large fieldstones were exposed in the southwestern corner of the square. Potsherds dating to the Byzantine period (fourth–fifth centuries CE), including cooking kraters (Fig. 3:2, 3), a cooking pot (Fig. 3:4) and a baggy-shaped jar (Fig. 3:5) were found next to the wall, as well as a bronze coin struck in the Jerusalem mint and possibly dating to the reign of Herod (37–4 BCE; IAA 136610).
Remains of a floor (L120; Fig. 6) were found c. 0.15 m below the surface in the east. The floor was overlain with numerous fragments of pottery vessels, dating to the Late Roman period (second–third centuries CE), including a lid of a cooking krater (Fig. 3:6), a saqiye jar (Fig. 3:7) and a baggy-shaped jar (Fig. 3:8), as well as a bronze coin dating to the third quarter of the fourth century CE (IAA 136609).
A habitation level with wadi pebbles and fragments of pottery vessels dating to the Early Roman period (not drawn) was visible in the side of the trial trench (L115).
Square 5. The foundations of two walls (W112, W113; Fig. 7) that probably formed the corner of a building were exposed. The building should be dated to the Early Roman period, based on the recovered potsherds (not drawn).
Square 6. A habitation level, which contained numerous fragments of pottery vessels (L122; Fig. 8) that dated to the Roman period (second century CE), including a bowl (Fig. 3:9) and baggy-shaped jars (Fig. , 11), was exposed.
Square 7. A wall foundation (W131; Figs. 9, 10) set on hamra soil was exposed. A few potsherds that dated to the Byzantine period, including a jar lid (Fig. 11:1), were found nearby.

Square 9. An extensive collapse of large stones (L135; Fig. 12), within a brown-gray soil fill, was exposed; surrounding it were potsherds, glass fragments and sheep/goat bones. The potsherds, dating to the Byzantine period, included fragments of bowls (Fig. 11:2, 3), a cooking pot (fig. 11:4), a Gaza jar (Fig. 11:5) and a baggy-shaped jar (Fig. 11:6), as well as fragments of roof tiles and pottery vessels from the Ottoman period (not drawn).
