A quarry uncovered in the bedrock (L11; 5.5 × 9.0 m, c. 1.1 m deep; Figs. 2–4) contained severance channels and negatives of different-sized stones on four to five quarrying levels. No diagnostic finds were recovered.
Numerous quarries previously discovered in the Ridge Compound attest to intensive quarrying carried out throughout the area in order to construct the ancient settlement at ‘Atlit. In the absence of diagnostic finds, it is difficult to determine when the stones were extracted from the quarry.
