Square A1. Two walls (W101, W109) and a fill of small and medium fieldstones (L108; 1.6 x 4.0 m; Fig. 3) between them were exposed. Wall 101 (length 6.8, width 0.6 m), built of medium and large fieldstones, was preserved two courses high. Wall 109 (length 3.2 m, width 0.4 m) was built of a row of medium-sized fieldstones. The walls were aligned northwest–southeast. The fieldstone fill is probably the foundation of an alley.


Square A2. A massive wall (W105; length 4 m, width 0.5 m), built of medium and large fieldstones and preserved two courses high, was exposed. Oriented northeast-southwest, it was perpendicular to Wall 101 (Fig. 4). The two walls continued beyond the limits of the excavation and it was impossible to determine the size of the structure that they enclosed. A small pavement section (L106) that consisted of small and medium fieldstones was exposed west of W105. The pavement did not adjoin any wall and its purpose is unknown.


The ceramic finds recovered from the building and the fill of the alley dated to the Roman and Byzantine periods and included bowls (Fig. 5:1–3) and jars (Fig. 5:4–9).
