A trial excavation was conducted, prior to the construction of a swimming pool in Kefar Shmaryahu (Permit No. A-3689*; map ref. NIG 18330-2/67728-9; OIG 13330-2/17728-9), revealing modern remains above a gray plaster floor (thickness 3 cm). A fieldstone-built wall oriented east-west was exposed below the floor. The several non-diagnostic potsherds found near the wall could not date it.
