The Winepress (Fig. 1) consisted of a treading surface (L100; 2.43 × 3.00 m) with a hewn recess in the floor, next to its northern wall, which was probably used to anchor the press screw. A rock-cut channel led from the treading surface to a collecting vat (L104; c. 1 × 1 m, depth c. 0.5 m), which had a shallow depression (diam. 0.3 m, depth 0.15 m) cut in its floor. The ceramic finds included potsherds from the Byzantine period.


Ancient Road (Fig. 2). A section of an ancient road, oriented east–west (length c. 65 m, width c. 3 m) was discovered. It was demarcated on either side by walls (W102, W103) built of large fieldstones (0.50 × 0.75 m) that protruded some 0.35 cm above the road level. A probe, extending the entire width of the road, was excavated between the walls, revealing the road bedding (L106) that was composed of small stones. Several non-diagnostic pottery fragments were found.


The Field Tower (Fig. 3) is located c. 10 m northeast of the ancient road. The circular tower (diam. c. 5 m) was built of large roughly worked fieldstones (0.7 × 1.0 m) that were set on bedrock and were mostly preserved two courses high. Rock cuttings and chiseling discerned in bedrock probably meant to stabilize the tower’s base. A water cistern with a square mouth (L111; 1 × 1 m, depth c. 1 m) was hewn in the limestone bedrock at the center of the tower. Water drained into the cistern by way of natural depressions in bedrock and a channel hewn in its northeastern wall. The cistern was bell-shaped (depth c. 2 m) and filled with alluvium and limestone, including a few ribbed pottery fragments that probably date to the Byzantine period, as well as several animal bones and burnt organic matter.


A Stone Clearance Heap that has an elliptical contour (5 × 7 m, height 0.5 m) was located next to the northeastern side of the field tower. It was outlined by large fieldstones (0.5 × 1.0 m) and a trench excavated across it yielded several non-diagnostic potsherds.


Cupmarks. Some 10 cupmarks of various sizes were scattered throughout the excavation area. Three of them were cleaned (diam. 0.34 m, 0.38 m and 0.45 m respectively) and found devoid of ancient finds.
