Stratum I was located in the eastern square, below a layer of top soil that contained numerous potsherds from the Late Islamic, Crusader, Byzantine and Roman periods. It was a burnt layer that contained a few fieldstones, many pottery fragments and a complete vessel, not in situ, which dated to the Byzantine period.
Stratum II. A floor bedding of mortar, overlain with fragments of pottery vessels that dated to the Persian period, was exposed below Stratum I.
Stratum III. A number of fieldstones that may have been a poorly preserved wall were exposed in the southern part of the western square. Some potsherds that dated to the Iron Age were recovered and the wall (?) should probably be dated to the same period.
