The walls (width 0.6 m) of the structure, set on foundations of wadi pebbles, were built of roughly hewn chalk stones and preserved 0.7 m high. An entrance threshold was discovered in the center of the eastern wall (W53). A pillar (W55; length c. 0.8 m), also built of roughly hewn chalk stones, was inside the building in the middle of the northern wall (W52). The pillar was apparently meant to support the ceiling. The tamped earth floor of the building was overlain with numerous iron fragments and black Gaza ware potsherds that dated to the Ottoman period, including bowls (Fig. 3:1–3) and jars (Fig. 2:4–7). Soil fill and stones accumulated in the building and no collapse was discerned; therefore, it seems that the walls were robbed. The structure was apparently used as a dwelling.
