The renovation, of a building that was constructed in the twentieth century, included lowering the level of the floor in one of the rooms down to bedrock (Fig. 2). Pottery sherds and bones were discovered during this work. The bedrock, which slopes down from west to east, was revealed in the western part of the room. The foundations of the building, and a layer of stones supported by soil fill that went down to bedrock, were found underneath the floor. The soil fill contained a few pottery sherds and a large quantity of modern debris. The remains are of a single period, dating to the construction of the building in the twentieth century.
There were no signs of quarrying or any human activity on the bedrock. The cliff is visible in Area E east of the building, and it seems that the surface begins to descend toward it from the vicinity of the building (Figs. 3–5).
The foundations of the building, which were set on the bedrock and conformed to its contour, were of fieldstones with soil fill. They were thicker than the walls of the building (Figs. 4–6). A layer of medium-size stones and soil fill below the modern floors contained a few pottery sherds and bones, and a large amount of modern debris, including modern metal tools that were probably used for excavations in the area, fragments of glass and plastic utensils. The fill (c. 2 cm thick in the west, 1.5 m in the east, conforming to the slope of the bedrock), which abutted the foundations and reached the bedrock surface, was probably deposited as a basis to the floor. The floors in the northwestern part of the building were laid directly on the bedrock (see Figs. 3, 5).
It was not possible to determine if the foundations belonged to an earlier structure because of the large quantity of modern waste in the fill below the floors which reached the level of the bedrock. In aerial photographs from the early twentieth century the structure is not visible, so it was probably erected sometime during that century.
