Squares A and B yielded two sections of a dam wall (W11, W31; Figs. 2–5), which ran parallel to the Nahal Zippori streambed and c. 30 m to its south. Walls 11 and 31 were built of dry construction out of a single row of roughly hewn chalk stones and were preserved to the height of one course. Collapses of building stones (L12, L30, L32) were uncovered beside the north side of both wall sections, and a few Late Roman and Byzantine potsherds were discovered nearby. Walls 11 and 31 were founded on clayey alluvial soil (L14, L32). The dam wall was probably designed to prevent flooding at times when the stream flow was particularly swift during the Late Roman and Byzantine periods.
Square C. Beneath the surface level of the clayey soil (L50), a jumbled concentration of reddish burnt bricks was unearthed (L51; Figs. 6, 7)—probably part of the base of a tabun that was not preserved.Roman and Byzantine potsherds were found near the concentration of bricks. Clayey alluvium (L52) was discovered beneath the burnt bricks.
Square D. The foundation of a wall (W71; 1.0–1.3 m wide; Figs. 8, 9) built of medium-sized fieldstones was uncovered; it was preserved to the height of a single course. The foundation was discovered near the surface and hence had been damaged by land tillage. Roman and Byzantine pottery was found to the east of the wall foundation (L70). The foundation was set on clayey alluvial soil (L72). It may be a wall foundation of a building.
Square E yielded remains of an agricultural terrace wall (W91; Figs. 10, 11). The wall was built of a single row of fieldstones and was preserved to the height of one course. Mamluk pottery, some of which was glazed, was retrieved from both sides of the wall (L92, L93).
Square F. About 1 m below surface level, a layer of tamped earth mixed with small stones was discovered (L110; Figs. 12, 13); it was founded on the bedrock. The tamped-earth layer apparently served as bedding for an ancient road. No diagnostic finds were recovered in the excavation square.
