Oil Extraction Plant A. A room was exposed to the east of the wall, in which a beam was set. Its stone-paved floor was incorporated with bedrock. Pottery fragments between the paving stones mostly dated to the Mamluk period, when the oil extraction plant was no longer in use. The room was intentionally filled with soil and small fieldstones and above it a thin wall was erected. Another wall of large roughly hewn stones was used in this period to convert the weight pit into a plastered pool. The two later walls were dismantled.


Oil Extraction Plant C. The southern part of the plant was excavated. A doorway was exposed in the western wall, leading to an alleyway that was probably sealed during the Mamluk period. A millstone was discovered outside the building.
