The exposure was carried out by mechanical equipment down to the top of the tombs, with the intention of locating them, without excavation. Four clusters of tombs were discovered, each consisting of c. 60 cist tombs covered with soft chalk slabs. Some tombs were aligned east–west and others were oriented northwest–southeast. The distances between the tombs were not uniform. Several pottery fragments uncovered during the exposure date the cemetery to the Byzantine period. This is probably the cemetery of Horbat Rosh that is located to the east of the site.
