Fragments of two teapots, characteristic of the Intermediate Bronze Age (Early Bronze Age IV; Fig. 2), were recovered from the eastern side of the chamber. Osteological remains were scattered across the floor and found in the fill that accumulated in the chamber. Analysis of the bones indicated they belonged to a single adult individual. The fill in the chamber and the shaft also contained numerous microliths that were apparently swept into the cave along with the alluvium that originated from the prehistoric settlement of Newe David, located at the outlet of Nahal Ezov (Wadi Siyah)


The cave, probably plundered in antiquity, was part of a large burial complex that extended to the foot of Mount Carmel, between Nahal Ezov and Nahal Ahuzza. Other burial caves from the Intermediate Bronze Age were revealed in the region; most of them were plundered during the Roman–Byzantine period.
