Room I was located at the western end of the excavation area and most of it extended beyond the area. Two walls (W11, W12), built above bedrock of two rows of roughly hewn stones with a core of small fieldstones and preserved 0.3–0.5 m high, were exposed.
Room II was built east of and adjacent to Room I. Three of its walls (W18, W20 W26), partially built on bedrock of two rows of roughly hewn stones and a core of small fieldstones, were exposed. Fragments of Phoenician jars with a plain thickened rim (Fig. ) were found in the two rooms; some of the jars have a thickened and incised rim (Fig. , 16) and some have twisted handles (Fig. ). The jars are dated from the second half of the first century BCE to the second century CE.
East of the two rooms, two parallel walls (W7, W8) that consisted of one row of large stones (0.40–0.50 × 0.45–0.65 × 0.50–0.75 m) whose outer face was roughly hewn, were discovered. The walls, set on bedrock, were preserved 0.45–0.65 m high. It is unclear for what purpose the walls were used; perhaps they were meant to level the area or serve as a foundation for a superstructure. Potsherds found on bedrock and in the dumps that abutted the walls dated from the first century to the fourth century CE and included bowls (Fig. 2:1, 7), Galilean bowls (Fig. 2:2–4), Syrian mortaria (Fig. 2:5, 6), a cooking krater (Fig. 2:8), cooking pots (Fig. 2:9–13), amphorae (Fig. , 19) and jugs (Fig. , 21).
The cave east of the excavation area (6 × 8 m; max. height 2.7 m; Fig. 3) was partially excavated. It was hewn in chalk bedrock and in the entrance on the southern side were two steps. It seems the cave was initially used for burial and in a later period, was enlarged, plastered and used as a water cistern. Three coins were found; two came from the fill and one was in the debris. One is an autonomous coin from Tyre (121–122 CE; IAA 102887); the second, from Caesarea, is from the time of the emperor Alexander Severus (222–235 CE; IAA 102888) and the third coin is dated to the middle of the fourteenth century CE (IAA 102889).
Military outposts dating to the time of the British Mandate and collapse consisting of roughly hewn stones (W16) were also discerned in the excavation area.
