The remains of the first phase consisted of two perpendicular walls (W11, W21) founded on the bedrock and abutted by a flagstone pavement (L19; Fig. 3). An opening in Wall 11 had survived by a threshold and doorjambs (see Fig. 2), whose shape indicates that the inside of the house was situated east of the wall and the area excavated to the west of the wall was its courtyard. Fragments of jars, bowls, kraters and a fry pan glazed dark brown on the inside (Fig. 4:1), all dating to the fourteenth–fifteenth centuries CE, were found above the floor of the early phase.
Two fragments of storage jars (Fig. 4:5, 8), dating to this period, were discovered when the floor of the building’s early phase was dismantled near the southern part of W11.
The remains ascribed to the second phase included two pillars affixed to W11, a blockage of the opening in W11 and a new pavement of flagstones (L17; see Fig. 3).
It can be concluded from the presence of the pillars that the function of the area had changed from an open courtyard to a covered room. Fragments of jars, bowls, kraters and a potsherd belonging to a jug, glazed green on the exterior and interior and decorated with a pinched design (Fig. 4:6) were found above the floor of the second phase. In addition, a cooking-pot fragment (Fig. 4:7) and a bowl fragment of dark brown clay (Fig. 4:2) were uncovered. All the potsherds date to the fourteenth–fifteenth centuries CE. Fragments of green-glazed bowls (Fig. 4:3, 4) dating to the fourteenth–fifteenth centuries CE were found after the floor was dismantled.
Two other walls (W12, W14) and an adjoining flagstone pavement (L10) were built in the third phase.The orientation of Walls 12 and 14 was different than that of Walls 11, 21 and the pillars. Nevertheless, they adjoined W11 and show that the latter continued to be used. Wall 12 partitioned the inside of an area that was open in the previous phases. Fragments of pottery vessels dating to the fourteenth–fifteenth centuries CE, some of which are glazed, were discovered above the floor of this phase.
A section of a destroyed wall (W13) that probably belonged to another building complex was exposed. It was also ascribed to the third construction phase.
