Area A (Fig. 2). One square was excavated in the middle of the tumulus surveyed by Olami and another two and one half squares were opened nearby. Only a natural bedrock surface that descends down the slope in a southwesterly direction was exposed.
Area B (Fig. 3). Two half squares were opened south of and parallel to the trial trenches that were dug in this area. Soft limestone bedrock was revealed beneath an accumulation (thickness 0.3 m).
Area C (Fig. 4). One and one half squares were excavated down to the level of the bedrock (depth 0.2 m).
Area D (Fig. 5). A square was excavated where a farming terrace was thought to be in a wadi that runs between Areas A and C; it turns out this was an agricultural fence that was built on the surface.
Several fragments of pottery vessels dating to the Late Roman and Byzantine periods (not drawn) were found in the accumulations excavated in Areas B and C and beneath the fence in Area D. Small potsherds that could not be identified with certainty were found in one of the squares in Area A, alongside the tumulus; it seems that they too date to these periods.  
Similar finds were also discovered in the previous excavation at the site. It seems that these are the remains of some agricultural activity, whose nature and extent cannot be determined.
