The excavation (Fig. 2) entailed cleaning the remains of a small cave (L100) in the northern section of the hill, several cavities (L101–L103) on the hilltop and an installation (L104) at the southeastern end of the hill. Cave 100 (Fig. 3), which was damaged during the recent earthworks, was elliptical, and a round depression found right above it might have been the opening of a shaft that led into it; no finds were discovered in it. Likewise, no artifacts were discovered in Cavities 101–103, which were possibly formed by karstic activity. Installation 104 included a rock-cut surface that was severed by earlier work there. A channel led from the surface to a shallow elliptical basin (Fig. 4); it seems that the installation was a simple wine press.
The excavated hill lay on the fringes of the settlement unearthed at Khirbat Burnat, in an area that served for agriculture, industry and burial.
