During June 2007, a survey was conducted east of Moshav Kefar Hittim on the slope descending to ‘Enot Qotzer, as far as Moshav Arbel (Permit No. A-5279; map ref. 24660–810/74450–755), prior to the construction of a golf course. The survey, on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority, was directed by A. Mokary, with the assistance of A. Shapiro (GPS).
Eighteen sites (1–18; Fig. 1) were documented in a survey area, covering c. 1,000 dunams:
1, 4, 5, 13: Four farming terraces.
2, 3: Two tumuli.
6, 7, 8, 9: Four structures built of fieldstones in dry construction; two structures are opened in the north (6—3.5×5.0 m; 7—3×7 m), the opening of the third is destroyed (8; 87 sq m) and the fourth is elliptical and its opening faces south (9; length c. 4 m, 25 sq m). Potsherds from the Roman and Byzantine periods were collected in the vicinity of the buildings.
10, 11, 12, 14: Four stone clearance heaps.
15, 17, 18: Three potsherd scatterings dating to the Roman period.
16: A small ruin with architectural remains from the Roman and Byzantine periods.
No potsherds or flint tools were found in the vicinity of the terraces and the tumuli; therefore, it was impossible to date them.
