The current excavation (25 sq m; Fog. 2) exposed two parallel fieldstone walls (W105, W107), built in an east–west direction, c. 3 m apart. The walls were found buried inside a thick layer (c. 1 m) of collapsed fieldstones of various sizes, indicative of a nearby massive structure. The ceramic finds, dating to the Byzantine and Early Islamic periods, included fragments of a deep krater (Fig. 3:1), cooking pots and lids (Fig. 3:2), bag-shaped jars (Fig. 3:3), Gaza jars (Fig. 3:4), a saqiye vessel (Fig. 3:5) and a flask (Fig. 3:6).
