At Khirbat el-Qabra, on a hilltop north of Giv‘at Ram in Karmi’el, architectural remains were identified, including a circular structure that is probably a cistern (Site 1), ashlar-built walls (Site 2), cisterns (Site 4), a rock-cut cave (Site 3; Fig. 2) and potsherds that dated from the Roman to the Ottoman periods. A small but thriving farming settlement was probably located there.
At Horbat Midrasa, cisterns, water reservoirs, architectural remains, limekilns (Sites 5, 6; Fig. 3) and potsherds from the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman periods were documented. The finds indicate the existence of a settlement and probably a monastery that was here in the Byzantine period.
