The Early Bronze IB complex included two parallel walls preserved to a maximum of two courses high. The walls, oriented north–south, were founded directly on bedrock. Whether the two walls were part of the same structure, or belonged to two adjacent structures, is unclear. An irregular layer of stones above the floor of the complex was apparently a collapse. Numerous fragments of pottery vessels overlaid the floor and the base of a complete jar was embedded into it, close to W714 (Fig. 2).


Random concentrations of mixed ceramics above bedrock and a variety of installations and rock cuttings were found in the other excavation areas, including seven shafts, four cave openings, a single winepress and three hewn installations of unclear nature.

One shaft (L112) was completely excavated. It was rock-hewn (diam. 1 m, depth 1.5 m) and led into a bell-shaped cistern (1.2 x 1.5 m; depth c. 2.5 m). Two other shafts were not fully excavated (L512––diam. c. 0.9 m, excavated depth c. 1.7 m; L513––diam. c. 0.7 m, excavated depth 1.5 m). Mixed ceramic finds were collected from each of the shafts, probably deriving from the alluvium that was swept into them.

One of the four cave entries (L514; diam. c. 1.2 m), which apparently led to a subterranean chamber, was excavated.
