Stratum II yielded two rooms (L15, L17) paved with stones of various sizes and built directly on the bedrock. The rooms were separated by a wall (W13); another wall (W14), enclosing Rooms 15 and 17, abutted W13 from the south. South of W14 was a tabun (L16), which was probably set in the courtyard, which was destroyed in modern times. Abbasid potsherds recovered above the rooms’ floors and below them, on the bedrock, included a bowl (Fig. 4:1) and a jug (Fig. 4:2).
Stratum I. A wall (W12; height 1 m; Fig. 5) built of medium-sized basalt stones was uncovered in the northwest corner of the square; it extended beyond the excavation area. A layer of ash (L10, L18) excavated to the south of the wall yielded pottery from the Mamluk period: a deep bowl (Fig. 4:3), a bowl (Fig. 4:4) and two jugs (Fig. 4:5, 6).
The excavation results show that the Abbasid-period settlement extended as far as the hill in the center of the village and was not confined to the eastern slope, whereas the Mamluk-period settlement lay on the hill and did not expand eastward.
