The boundaries of Khirbat Bat el Jabal were re-examined in the survey and ten prominent points were marked (Fig. 1).
1. A pair of rock-hewn pools.
2a. Remains of a structure (15×25 m) built of large ashlars, mostly not in situ.
2b. Remains of a building to the north.
3. A building with “raised foundations”—a method whereby the rooms of the building were hewn in bedrock and the line of the wall remained as a foundation that protruded above the floors and served as a base for the further construction of the walls. Heaps of ashlars were found near the building.
4. Large architectural elements, including a threshold or lintel, and a section of a “raised foundation” nearby.
5. A concentration of buildings overlain by farming terraces; a corner of a building and a cistern were found.
6. A degenerated interpretation of a Corinthian capital that has potsherds affixed to it with plaster to form an acanthus motif.
7. “Raised foundations” of buildings; numerous ashlars are located on a nearby terrace.
8. A concentration of buildings in an open area. They have “raised foundations” and were not damaged by modern cultivation; the remains are well-preserved.
9. An ashlar wall covered by a modern terrace in which a pier (betulah) belonging to an olive press was found. A cistern is located to the west.
10. A rock-hewn courtyard and remains of “raised foundations”.
A complementary survey was conducted in 2005, documenting two winepresses and another well (Fig. 1, marked in black).
Despite the damage to the site, Khirbat Bat el Jabal is one of the largest and best preserved sites of the Byzantine period in the Western Galilee; the extent of the site is demarcated on the master plan of Shelomi as an archaeological park.
