Nine sites (1–9) were surveyed:
1. Map ref. 175892/578737 (Fig. 2). A structure (8×10 m) built of undressed fieldstones, probably a large watchman’s hut.
2. Map ref. 175892/578880 (Fig. 3). A farming terrace built of fieldstones and preserved two courses high.
3. Map ref. 175432/580092 (Fig. 4). A cistern hewn in a qirton terrace; it has a round opening (diam. 1.2 m) and signs of wear on its sides from the ropes that were used to draw water from it.
4, 5. Map ref. 177146/577146 (Figs. 5, 6). Piles of small and medium fieldstones on a high ridge, possibly stone clearance heaps or tombs (3×5 m).
6. Map ref. 177393/577781 (Fig. 7). A building with a courtyard, located on a hilltop looking out to the south over Nahal ‘Ashan and north over one of its tributaries. The building has at least two rooms and an open courtyard to its east (10×20 m).
7, 8. Map ref. 177515/578002 (Figs. 8, 9). Two watchman huts, each with a single room,  constructed from undressed fieldstones.
9. Map ref. 177364/577855 (Fig. 10). A structure with at least three rooms. Its walls are preserved to a maximum of five courses high. The building had previously been excavated by Y. Baumgarten (HA-ESI 117).
The surveyed sites were probably part of the agricultural system that belonged to the settlement at Horbat Karkur ‘Illit in the Byzantine period.
