A section of a wall, part of which was discerned on the surface before the excavation, and a half square located c. 9 m west of it, were excavated (Fig. 1). The area west of the wall was damaged by construction work. The wall (W1; exposed length c. 6 m, width 0.7 m; Fig. 2) was founded on the bedrock and built of a row of large stones (0.65 × 0.75 m) with small stones and soil between them. Collapse of large fieldstones was discovered in the half square (Fig. 3).
Potsherds and fragments of glass vessels dating to the Byzantine and Early Islamic periods were discovered in the fill west of Wall 1. The ceramic finds included bowls (Fig. 4:1–3), kraters (Fig. 4:4–12), cooking vessels (Fig. 4:13–18) and jars (Fig. 4:19–23), dating to the Byzantine period, and a jar fragment with a spout (Fig. 4:24), dating to the Early Islamic period.
