A trial excavation in Qibbuz Magal (Permit No. A-4143*; map ref. NIG 20450/69901; OIG 15450/19901) revealed a natural cave, c. 100 south of Tel Magal, which had been excavated in the past by U. ‘Ad and E. Yannai (Permit No. A-3244) who discovered remains, dating from the Neolithic period until Early Bronze Age III. The cave was almost completely destroyed and only a small section of its northern side survived and was excavated to bedrock (length c. 1.5 m, width c. 2.5 m). Brown alluvium that apparently originated from the tell and fragments of limestone from the collapse of the cave’s ceiling were found. No evidence of ancient activity was discerned.
