1 (map ref. 217450/625378). Remains of a rock-hewn burial cave (2.8 × 3.6 m) whose entrance (0.7 × 0.8 m) faced the northeast. The entrance is arched and enclosed within a hewn rectangular frame (1.6 × 1.8 m; Fig. 4). A hewn niche (0.32 × 0.40 × 0.55 m) is located just to the north of the entrance and a courtyard (c. 4.0 × 4.7 m) is hewn in front of the cave.
2 (map ref. 217420/625367). A farming terrace retaining wall (length c. 22 m, height c. 3.2 m; Fig. 5) built of medium-sized fieldstones and preserved twenty courses high. Several dressed building stones were discerned in the lower part of the wall.
3 (map ref. 217225/625503). A boulder hewn in a bedrock outcrop (1.4 × 1.6 m). Several low bedrock steps (each c. 0.14 m high) are hewn around the boulder. These are probably the remains of a quarry for building stones.
4 (map ref. 217183/625507). A vertical rock-cutting in the bedrock (length 3.5 m, height 2 m; Fig. 6), possibly of a burial cave, which was exposed as a result of illicit digging.
5 (map ref. 216980/625481). A farming terrace (12 × 17 m) with planted olive trees. Worn potsherds dating to the Byzantine period, which were probably swept from the top of the spur, are scattered along the terrace.
6 (map ref. 217198/625418). A circular rock-cutting in a bedrock outcrop (diam. 1.6 m, depth 0.3 m), which is probably an installation for crushing agricultural produce or for processing olives.
7 (map ref. 217329/625435). A limekiln (5 × 7 m; Figs. 7, 8) dating to the Late Ottoman period was documented at the top of the slope. The kiln was built of dressed stones and fieldstones and its corners were well-built of dressed stones. The kiln’s opening was arched. Several stones with drafted margins were incorporated in the lower courses of the kiln’s wall. A rock-hewn cistern (depth c. 3 m) was documented next to the kiln.
8 (map ref. 217350/625386). A rock-hewn cave with a round interior (height c. 3 m; Fig. 9). Four square niches (each 0.3 × 0.4 m) were hewn in the western side of the cave, c. 0.35 m above the floor. It seems that shepherds used the cave was habitation.
9 (map ref. 217362/625408). A cave opening that was exposed due to illicit digging. It was impossible to enter the cave.
10 (map ref. 217452/625352). Numerous potsherds scattered across an area of 1–2 dunams and dating to the following periods: Iron II (moderate amount), Hellenistic (large amount), Early and Late Roman and Byzantine (large amount).
11 (map ref. 217476/625392). A rectangular opening of a burial cave (?; 0.6 × 1.2 m) filled with debris.
12 (map ref. 217561/625553). A farming terrace (c. 4 dunams; Fig. 10) with olive trees planted in-between numerous bedrock outcrops. Worn potsherds dating to the Hellenistic and Byzantine periods are scattered across the surface of the terrace.
13 (map ref. 217750/625560). Farming terraces planted with olive trees that are several decades old. Dressed building stones are incorporated in the construction of the terrace walls. A few potsherds dating to the Byzantine period are scattered on the surface (Fig. 11).
The survey area served as an agricultural hinterland of the settlement that was situated at the top of the spur (map ref. 217132/625420). The meager remains of this settlement are evident between the houses in the village of Beit Jalla, and they include dressed building stones, cisterns, and potsherds that are scattered along the surface. Over the years, the remains of this settlement have been destroyed as a result of building and development in the village. The agricultural hinterland of the settlement extends across the entire slope and at its foot. Rock-hewn cisterns and around them, hewn installations and troughs, used in processing agricultural products, were documented at the bottom of the slope, several meters above the Nahal Gillo channel.
