The excavation area (75 sq m; Fig. 2) was located c. 20 m south of Gophna and Ayalon’s excavation. Small and medium kurkar stones, scattered along a uniform level (Loci 101, 103, 104, 109, 112; Figs. 3–6), were discovered throughout the entire area. The hill’s kurkar sand (Loci 107, 108, 111; Fig. 7) was revealed below the stone level. A few potsherds from Iron II were discovered between the stones, including a krater (Fig. 8:1), a cooking pot (Fig. 8:2) and a jar (Fig. 8:3) that dated to the ninth century BCE. These stones may be the remains of a surface that was built around the Intermediate Bronze Age cultic area, exposed nearby. It is suggested that long after the site was abandoned in the Intermediate Bronze Age, the population residing in the small nearby settlements probably continued to assemble there.
