Two adjacent squares that included part of the cable channel were excavated. Construction from basalt fieldstones, closely set in place next to and atop each other, was damaged inside the channel. Another part of the construction was located in the squares and its northern extension was discerned in the section of the channel. This is apparently a farming terrace. A surface of medium-sized fieldstones was discovered above the terrace in one of the squares.  


The ceramic finds included fragments of pottery vessels from two main periods: Early Bronze Age I and the Mamluk–Ottoman periods. Modern metal implements in the lower levels and the location of the potsherds precluded exact dating, but it seems that the farm terrace should be dated to the Mamluk period. Part of a bracelet and a large number of olive pits were discovered alongside the pottery fragments from the Mamluk period. A flint tool (Canaanean blade) and a fairly large quantity of flint flakes and cores, indicative of a flint-tool industry, were dated to the Early Bronze Age. Several pottery fragments from the Middle Bronze Age, as well as the Roman and Byzantine periods, were discovered as well.
