A burial structure dating from the Byzantine or Early Islamic period was excavated. Previous excavations at the site uncovered a settlement sequence that spanned from the Late Byzantine period to the British Mandate era (for background and references, see Kohn-Tavor 2015).

The tomb was dug into the ḥamra soil and lined with small and medium-sized fieldstones bonded with gray mortar (Figs. 2–4). A step (Fig. 5) was built on the eastern side of the tomb; two large stones beside it may have facilitated access to the step. The tomb was covered with a gabled roof (Figs. 6–8). The structure contained a few poorly preserved, non-articulated human bones belonging to two individuals. It also yielded several worn potsherds (not drawn) that date from the Byzantine or Early Islamic period. The tomb contained a fragment of a modern light bulb and had evidently been disturbed or robbed.

Similar tombs are known in a nearby cemetery belonging to the Arab village of Ṣarafand, where they were used as family tombs. Gabled stone-built tombs are also known from excavations in Yafo (Arbel 2017: Fig. 4).
