The surface was cleaned in two squares and habitation levels were exposed; these yielded finds dating to the Late Mamluk and Early Ottoman periods, including animal bones, fragments of pottery and glass vessels and coins. The numismatic finds from the Roman and Ottoman periods include a coin that probably dates to the reign of Trajan (98–117 CE; IAA 111926), a coin from the reign of Constantine I (341–346 CE; IAA 111922) and a silver Ottoman coin from the seventeenth century CE (IAA 111925). Four coins were found on the surface near the excavation: one is dated to the reign of Probus (276–282 CE; IAA 111928) and the others were dated to the Roman period (IAA 111921, 111924, 111927).
The finds suggest that a settlement existed on the hill of Bet She‘arim during the Roman, Mamluk and Early Ottoman periods.
