Remains of three strata were exposed. Rock cuttings (Stratum 3), which may have been part of an agricultural installation that was used by the el-Kabri settlement in the Byzantine period, were discovered on bedrock. The remains of a large structure (Stratum 2) were discovered above the rock-cuttings (width c. 1 m). The walls, oriented east–west, were built of dressed stones and the entrance was set in the southern wall (W1; min. length 16.8 m). The building had two rooms divided by a partition wall (W5). Two piers (W5a, W5b) that apparently bore the building’s vaulted ceiling were incorporated in W5. A few potsherds within the floor bedding of the building were dated to the eighteenth century CE. The building collapsed after it was abandoned. On surface, overlying the building remains, part of a small fieldstone-built structure (Stratum 1; W2, W4) that seems to be of a twentieth century CE date, was discovered.
