Stratum I
Sparse architectural elements were attributed to this stratum, including two segments of stone-built walls and two pits. The ceramic finds dated this stratum to the Byzantine period.
Stratum II
Architectural finds from this stratum were limited to a probe in the southern part of the square and included a wall fragment and a living surface. The potsherds dated the stratum to the Middle Roman Period (third century CE). 
Stratum III
A circular stone-built installation (L314) was exposed c. 2.5 m below the modern surface in the north part of the excavation (Fig. 2). The plaster lining of the interior face of the wall suggests this was a silo and the ceramic finds dated it to early Iron Age I.
The exposure of settlement remains on the northern slopes of the site, north of the MB II fortification line, indicates that this area was settled during the Byzantine, Roman and Iron ages. The Iron I installation is most likely associated with a contemporary building, exposed in the previous excavation, 25 m to the south (see Fig. 1).
The present excavations have contributed to our understanding of the northernmost limits of Tel Shunem during the various periods.
