Seven installations (F1–F7; Fig. 2) were excavated and documented, including quarries and a shaft that were hewn in limestone bedrock.
F1. A natural shaft (L10; diam. c. 0.5 m, depth 0.6 m, Fig. 3) below a small bedrock outcrop at the southeastern end of the excavation area. Chisel marks were only visible on the shaft’s northern side.
F2. A small shallow rectangular quarry (L11; 1.5 × 3.0 m, max. depth c. 0.25 m; Fig. 4). Signs of rock cuttings and the detachment of at least four stones (average size 0.8 × 0.8 m) were discerned. Stone trimming debris noted near the quarry indicates that the initial dressing of the stones was done there.
F3. A rock-hewn channel (L12; length 2 m, width 0.07 m, depth 0.05 m; Fig. 5), probably the beginning of an unfinished quarry, northwest of Quarry F2.
F4. A small shallow rectangular quarry (L5; 0.5 × 2.0 m, max. depth 0.35 m), north of the channel, bearing evidence that three stones (each 0.5 × 0.8 m; Fig. 6) were detached from it.
F5. A shallow quarry (L4; max. depth 0.3 m; Fig. 7) on a horizontal bedrock outcrop slightly northwest of Quarry F4. Judging by the severance and chisel marks evident in the quarry, at least eight stones of diverse sizes were hewn there, the largest being 0.5 × 1.0 m. The stone trimming debris near the quarry attests to the preliminary dressing of the stones that was performed at the site.
F6. A rectangular quarry consisting of three quarrying steps (L16; depth of the western step c. 0.4 m; Fig. 8) in the northwestern part of the excavation area. Because it was difficult to discern the negatives of the stones it was not possible to estimate how many were produced there.
F7. Another quarry, in the northeastern part of the excavation area, revealing chisel marks and signs of detachment of at least five stones of different sizes (L13; the largest stone 0.6 × 1.0 m; Figs 9, 10). Several small to medium-sized fieldstones were placed on bedrock in the northern wall of the quarry, probably after the quarry was no longer in use.
A scant number of ceramic finds, consisting mainly of ribbed body fragments dating to the Byzantine period, were collected in the excavation area.
The seven quarries, each of which producing only a few building stones, are characteristic of an area where dolomite and limestone rock prevail. Apparently, the building stones were used by one of the settlements that surround the excavation area such as Horbat Bizqa.
