Agricultural Terraces and a Field Wall. Agricultural Terrace 100 (exposed length c. 21 m; Figs. 2, 3) was somewhat carelessly constructed of large fieldstones (average size 0.6 × 0.7 m) with dark clay fill in the middle and mortar between the stones; the western part of the wall (width 0.8 m) was built of two rows of stone. The wall was founded on bedrock, making use of its natural slope.
Terrace 106 (length c. 7 m; Fig. 2) extended across the eastern part of the excavation area. The terrace wall was carelessly constructed of medium-sized fieldstones (average size 0.4 × 0.5 m) founded on the bedrock, utilizing its natural slope.
Field Wall 112 (exposed length c. 97 m; Figs. 2, 4) extended along the top of the slope. This wall probably served as a fence to demarcate agricultural plots. It was built of fieldstones of various sizes (average size 0.25 × 0.25 m) set directly on the bedrock; small stones and a clay fill were set between the wall’s stones and between the two faces of the southern part of the, which was constructed of two rows of stones.
Terrace Wall 118 (exposed length c. 30 m; Fig. 5) was built of large, roughly hewn fieldstones (average size 0.6 × 0.7 m). A fill consisting small and medium-sized stones and dark clay was discovered east of the wall.
Winepress. A small, simple winepress (Figs. 2, 6, 7) was exposed. It includes a square treading floor (L108), which sloped gently to the west, toward a collecting vat (L101; diam. 1.16 m, depth 0.95 m). Several body fragments of pottery vessels dating from the Byzantine period (fifth–sixth centuries CE) were found in the collecting vat. A small, shallow cupmark (L104; diam. 23 cm, depth 4 cm) was discovered south of the vat.
Rock-Hewn Installation (Figs. 5, 8, 9). An installation in the southwestern part of the excavation area consisted of a round basin (L115; diam. 1.3 m, depth 0.41 m) and, on a lower bedrock terrace to its west, an elliptical basin (L117; 0.6 × 0.8 m, depth 0.35 m), with a small settling pit in it (L120; diam. 0.16 m, depth 4 cm). A short, shallow channel (L121; length 0.3 m, width 9 cm) linked the two basins, which were probably used to process liquids; it seems that the fluid flowed through the channel from the higher basin to the one below it.
Stone Clearance Heaps (Figs. 5, 8, 10). Two stone clearance heaps—one round (L116; height 0.4 m, diam. 3 m) and the other elongated (L119; length 4 m, height c. 0.4 m)—were located next to each other in the southern part of the excavation area, on the western slope of the hill. The stones in the heap, which had been collected from the nearby agricultural plots in order to clear them and facilitate cultivation, were piled directly on the bedrock.
The excavation finds are indicative of an agricultural area comprising several installations: rock-cut installations for processing agricultural produce (a winepress, hewn installations) and installations designed to allow cultivation (agricultural terraces and stone clearance heaps). It seems that the area was the agricultural hinterland of a settlement or farmstead that existed at Horbat Sirta. The ceramic finds were meager, consisting of only several sherds dating to the Byzantine period.
