Two areas (2.5 × 5.0 m each), both excavated to bedrock, were opened. An accumulation of remains (thickness 0.2–1.3 m) that included numerous stones, fragments of pottery vessels, flint tools, animal bones, stone vessels and bone implements, was uncovered. A complex of manmade round pits was exposed at the bottom of the accumulation. These pits were used as floor installations in the houses of the ancient settlement.

Most of the potsherds came from the later phase of the Early Chalcolithic period; they postdated the Wadi Rabah culture and preceded the Ghassulian culture. A few fragments from the Pottery Neolithic period are probably contemporary with the Jericho IX and Lodite cultures.
