The excavation was conducted in an ancient cultivation plot (60 × 110 m) that extended along a slope. The area was enclosed by a stone fence and retaining walls of farming terraces were visible within it. A section of a stone fence that delimited the area (W1) and one of the retaining walls (W2) were excavated. Wall 1 (exposed length 3.5 m; Figs. 1, 2) was built of large stones (max. length 1 m) that were set on bedrock (c. 0.2 m below surface). Wall 2 (length 13 m, exposed length 2 m; Figs. 3, 4) was built of small and medium-sized stones to a height of 0.6 m. This cultivation plot is characteristic of the Yattir region. Potsherds dating to the Byzantine period were recovered from similar plots that were excavated in the region.
