The caves, hewn in chalk bedrock, were discovered filled with alluvium (1–9; Fig. 1; elevations are relative). Caves 4 and 5 are probably one single cave. A fieldstone-built wall (W140) that probably served as a partition in one of the caves was exposed between Caves 3 and 4. While cleaning the bedrock at the bottom of the slope, part of a bronze dagger (Fig. 2) that probably dated to the Intermediate Bronze Age and may have been broken as part of a funerary ceremony, was discovered.
Two squares (A, B; Fig. 3; elevations are relative) were opened south of the slope. A tabun was exposed in Square B (L126); it was founded on a surface of small and medium-sized fieldstones (L129). A few small and worn potsherds, insufficient for dating the remains, were found.
