Stratum IV. Remains of this layer were revealed in Squares A and B. A habitation level (L112) composed of tamped earth with several potsherds from Middle Bronze Age IIA was exposed in Square A. A pit grave was exposed in Square B. It contained the bones of an adult individual and pottery vessels dating to Middle Bronze Age IIA, including an intact bowl (Figs. 3:1, 4), a carinated bowl fragment (Fig. 3:2), an intact amphoriskos (Figs 3:3, 5) and an intact dipper juglet (Figs. 3:4, 6).
Stratum III. A habitation level (L113) of tamped soil with fragments of a krater (Fig. 3:5) and a jar (Fig. 3:6), dating to the Late Bronze Age, was exposed in Square D.
Stratum II. A habitation level (L115, L116) of small fieldstones, with a black-slipped bowl dating to the Persian period (Fig. 3:7), was exposed in Squares A and B.
Stratum I. A uniform habitation level of small fieldstones was exposed in all six squares (Loci 100–105). A black-slipped bowl (Fig. 3:8), a Persian mortarium (Fig. 3:9) and a Phoenician jar (Fig. 3:10) dating to the Persian period were discovered on this level.
Based on the excavations carried out so far, it seems that a settlement existed at the site from the Early Bronze Age to the Roman period.
