Area A. Nine tombs, dating to Late Bronze Age IIB and Iron Age I, were found. Four types of interment were discerned: (1) pit graves (Fig. 1); (2) burial within two jars placed rim to rim (Fig. 2) and known as a double-pithos burial; (3) tombs built of unfired mud bricks and (4) cist tombs lined with kurkar slabs (Fig. 3).


Areas B and C. Thirteen tombs, built of kurkar slabs and placed on top of a hamra fill, were exposed. Pottery dating to the Byzantine period was recovered from the hamra soil. The tombs were not opened and may well be modern Muslim tombs. A pavement of very small fieldstones, delimited by a row of large fieldstones on the east, was exposed in Area C.


Area D. A tomb built of unfired mud bricks, similar to those found in Area A and devoid of finds, was exposed. A refuse pit dating to the Byzantine and Early Islamic periods was c. 150 m from the tomb and contained numerous fragments of jars, bowls, cooking pots and lamps, as well as a few glass vessel fragments from the end of the Byzantine period and the beginning of the Umayyad period and a poorly preserved bronze coin that probably dates to the fourth century CE.
