The excavation area was located 100 m west of the ‘En Tut Interchange, on the western slope of a hill (Trig. Point N-568 Northeast), where the settlement remains were exposed in previous excavations. Four squares (C10, C11, D3, D9; Fig. 2) were opened. A stone clearance heap (W103; width 3.5 m) aligned along a northwest–southeast axis was documented in the two northwestern squares (C10, C11). The heap was founded on bedrock and consisted of small- and medium-sized stones enclosed within a row of medium-sized fieldstones to the north and south. The grooved natural bedrock (L104, L108; Fig. 3) was exposed in the two southeastern squares (D3, D9).
The stone clearance heap and its proximity to the springs are indicative of agricultural activity that transpired in this region.
