A wall (W1; Fig. 1) in one of the squares was one course high and built of two rows of fieldstones with wadi pebbles between them. The wall, founded on surface, was probably part of a foundation for a tent or other temporary dwelling. A habitation level (thickness 0.6 m) abutted the wall and consisted of dark brown soil mixed with organic material, wadi pebbles and a few worn potsherds, mainly bowls and jars.


Remains of a hearth (0.60 × 0.90 m, depth 0.45 m) were found in the second square, which was opened c. 10 m northwest of the first. The hearth contained wadi pebbles and several fragments of pottery vessels dating to the fourteenth–sixteenth centuries CE, including cooking pots, bowls (Fig. 2:1–3) and jars (Fig. 2:4–6), as well as  a few crushed animal bones. It therefore seems that these remains should be attributed to a temporary transit camp, dating to the Mamluk period or the beginning of the Ottoman period.
