The First Burial Chamber (L1; Fig. 3) was trapezoidal; in its southern wall, opposite the entrance, was a narrow opening to the second burial chamber and in its western wall, to the right of the opening, was a small hewn niche (L4; Fig. 4) that may indicate the beginning of quarrying another burial chamber, which was never completed. The floor was covered with a layer of soil (thickness 0.5 m), which contained pottery vessels, including a bowl (Fig. 5:1) and a jug (Fig. 5:4), as well as the bones of two individuals: an adolescent boy or girl and a young man. The tibia of the man was deformed as a result of a fracture or illness.
The Second Burial Chamber (L3), which was not excavated, had a rectangular shape. Its floor, c. 0.4 m higher than that of the first chamber, was covered with a soil accumulation (thickness c. 0.2 m).
Prior to the excavation, four other pottery vessels were retrieved from the cave, including two cooking pots (Fig. 5:2, 3) and two jugs (Fig. 5:5, 6) whose original location inside the cave is unknown.
The bowl from the first chamber was red slipped and similar to the unslipped bowls that came from the Intermediate Bronze Age strata at Horbat ‘Uza. The cooking pots belonged to the type common at most of the contemporary sites in the northern part of the country and the jugs, which have a handle with a round cross-section, are of a type that is unique to the northern part of the Western Galilee, resembling the juglets from Rosh Ha-Niqra (Eretz Israel 11: 288), Hanita (Qadmoniot HaGalil HaMa’aravi:64) and Kabri (‘Atiqot 27:4*).
A survey of the slope where the cave was found revealed other caves, some of which may have been used for burial during this period. On the premises of the Western Galilee High School, c. 3 km north of Sheikh Danon, tombs that dated to the Intermediate Bronze Age (‘Atiqot 27:1*–18*) were excavated. No settlement remains from this period were discovered in the area of Esh-Sheikh Dawad and Kabri; however, an examination of a map with the remains from this period in the Western Galilee shows a series of settlements and cemeteries on the hills between the ‘Akko Valley and the Galilee mountains (Fig. 6).
