Square A1
A 4 m long segment of a southeast–northwest stone-built wall was exposed (W1; Fig. 3). This segment consisted of a single course of eight well-aligned fieldstones or small boulders (max. width 0.6 m.). Two additional boulders along the north face of W1 at its southeast end and a spread of smaller lime stones between them indicate that W1 had originally been two stones wide (max. width 1.3 m). The wall was set on the same type of compact, sterile Grumic soil that covered the stone alignment. The excavation was continued to a depth of c. 0.2 m below the foundation level of W1, yielding nothing but sterile brown soil. Part of the west balk of Sq A1 was cleared to establish the westernmost end of W1. An additional 2.5 m of W1 was exposed, before it ran dead in the wide trench cut previously by the bulldozer. Hence, the original length of W1, exposed over a stretch of 6.5 m, could not be established.


Square A2
A 5.5 m long wall segment (W2) of the same southeast–northwest stone-built wall (W1) was exposed (Fig. 4). This somewhat better-preserved wall segment still consisted of two courses of well-aligned fieldstones or small boulders in some places. The upper course was partly found lying along the south face of W2, most likely because of an apparent southward shift of W2’s foundation course, which possibly occurred as a consequence of a tremor or earthquake. The arrangement of a double row of fieldstone boulders with a core of smaller lime stones, which was assumed for W1, emerges even better in W2.
The setting of W2 and the excavation in this square compared exactly to W1 and Sq A1. Part of the west and east balks of Sq A2 were cleared to establish the western and easternmost ends of W2. On the east side, an additional 3.2 m of W2 were exposed, before it disappeared in the bulldozer-cut trench and 1.2 m of W2 were revealed on the west side, in the balk separating between the two squares. Notably, the actual linkage between W1 and W2 is missing (Fig. 5). Whether this was an intentional passage or the stones were accidentally removed, is hard to say.
