In 2015, an excavation was conducted near the entrance to Qazrin Park (Permit No. A-7579; map ref. 26606/76606), as part of the Golan Educational Program, under the auspices of the Prime Minister’s Office, the Israel Antiquities Authority and the Golan Regional Council. The excavation, on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority, was directed by O. Zingboym (photography), with the assistance of Y. Yaʽaqobi (administration), R. Mishayev and M. Kahan (surveying and drafting), K. Covello-Paran (scientific guidance), H. Tahan-Rosen (lithic drawings) and pupils and families from the Golan Heights.
Part of a building constructed of roughly hewn basalt stones (estimated dimensions 8 × 10 m) that included two rooms (1, 2; Zingboym 2014
; Fig. 1) was exposed in excavations conducted at the site in 2011–2013. The structure was further uncovered in the current excavation.
A rectangular excavation area (L111) was opened in Room 1, where a corner of a plastered installation (Fig. 2) was revealed. The installation was not fully excavated, and hence its dimensions, use and dating are unknown. In Room 2, an additional section of a floor (L109) was exposed: a pavement of flagstones, possibly in secondary use. Pottery sherds ranging in date from the Roman period (third–fourth centuries CE) to the Mamluk period (thirteenth–fourteenth centuries CE) were discovered in the excavation, as well as two fragments of stone vessels from the second–third centuries CE (Fig. 3). These are the first stone vessels found in Qazrin, and they may indicate that a Jewish population, which still maintained the ritual laws of purity and impurity, resided there during the second–third centuries CE.
