It became apparent in the survey that the remains of the ancient site extended across an elongated spur that is oriented east–west. It seems that the center of the site was at the top of the spur, where remains of a city wall, built of large stones, were discerned. Remains of a modern village were noted along the eastern part of the spur and brown soil was discerned east of the spur and the site, which may indicate that the village continued into this area.
Area A was characterized by light color soil that is typical of a tell; scattered potsherds and the tops of walls were visible across the surface. Area B was noted for its brown soil; a few potsherds scattered on the surface; the tops of walls, some of which were modern; and ancient building stones, which were partly incorporated in the walls of the modern buildings and partly lying on the ground. Area B seems to have been part of the ancient site; however, it was covered with the buildings of the village situated at the site. Area C, which extended across the southeastern fringes of the site, close to the orchards, was disrupted by mechanical equipment that had been used to prepare the ground for planting. A probe trench dug in the area indicated that it was probably located beyond the bounds of the ancient site. Area D was filled with alluvium (thickness 0.3–2.3 m).
A wadi channel had traversed the area in the past; however, it was probably blocked at the beginning of the 1990s (according to local farmers) when the Jewish National Fund conducted earthmoving works and an underground pipe was installed. Based on a probe trench, it is clear that the entire area was located beyond the limits of the ancient site.
