The excavation uncovered a section of the ‘Akko–Tyre Roman road and building remains (Fig. 2); no diagnostic finds were recovered. Other sections of this Roman road were excavated in the past (Mayer 1981 [Fig. 1: A-883]; Yitah 2000 [Fig. 1: A-2219]; Lerer 2012 [Fig. 1: A-6299]; Lerer 2016 [Fig. 1: A-7304]).
Remains of a Road. In the east of the excavation area were the remains of a Roman road (L106) that ran in a north–south direction; part of its bedding and some of its paving stones were preserved. The bedding was made of fieldstones of various sizes, and the overlying paving was made of rectangular, flat slabs (0.5 × 0.7 m).
Building Remains. A uniformly leveled fieldstone surface (L102; Fig. 2), the use of which is unclear, was found in the west of the excavation area. To its north was an east–west wall (W104) built of partially dressed fieldstones (0.2 × 0.2 × 0.4 m) and preserved to a height of two courses. The wall was damaged due to modern construction (L105). In the east of the excavation area, south of the Roman road, were the remains of a square installation (L101; 3 × 4 m; Fig. 3) built of ashlars and fieldstones of various sizes; a particularly large ashlar (0.5 × 0.5 × 1.0 m) and a column drum in secondary use were also incorporated in the installation (Fig. 4). The western and southern sides of the installation were damaged. The installation, which may have served as a podium, was abutted on the south by a wall (W103; excavated length 0.5 m, width 0.3 m) built of small and medium-sized fieldstones without bonding material; the wall continued southward beyond the limits of the excavation area. The date of the remains is not known as no diagnostic finds were recovered.
