An area of 25 sq m was excavated next to the access road (Fig. 2) and the foundations of three fieldstone walls were exposed (W1–W3; Fig. 3). Wall 1 was built of fieldstones (0.1 × 0.1 m) placed on the basalt bedrock. Because of the small segment that survived the context of W1 is unclear (Fig. 4). Walls 2 and 3 were built of small fieldstones (0.05×0.05 m), arranged in a single course set on top of the bedrock and forming a corner of a building that was located beyond the excavation area, along the route of the new road (Figs. 5, 6).
Fragments of pottery vessels dating to Middle Bronze Age IIA (second millennium BCE; Fig. 7), including bowls (Fig. 8:1–3) and cooking pots (Fig. 8:4–6), and from the Roman and Byzantine periods were found on the surface and on the bedrock.   
This is the first excavation at the site and it adds to our understanding of the settlement distribution in the region during these periods. The ceramic artifacts indicate that the settlement is from the Middle Bronze Age. The potsherds from the Roman period probably originated from agricultural activity that occurred in the adjacent settlements in this period. It is apparent from the finds that the excavation was conducted along the margin of the settlement.
