Site 13. A round cairn (diam. c. 3 m) built of medium-sized stones on a slope west of Highway 10 that descends toward the border. The cairn was bisected by a trench excavated by a bulldozer. No artifacts were discovered in the cairn, which apparently dates to the Intermediate Bronze Age.
Site 14. Three areas (A, B, C) were excavated.
14A. This site consists of three cairns: a round cairn (diam. c. 4.5 m) including a rectangular burial cell (1.0 × 1.7 m) built along an east–west axis constructed of limestone slabs (Fig. 2); a round cairn (diam. c. 4.2 m) with a double burial cell (each cell 0.4 × 0.8 m), which was built of flat limestone slabs oriented north–south; and a very poorly preserved cairn with no remains of a burial cell. No finds were discovered in the cairns, which were evidently plundered in the past.
14B. This prehistoric site (c. 96 sq m) featured a layer of light-colored loess mixed with small pebbles and a dense concentration of flint items (c. 40 items per sq m). Lithic artifacts were gathered at the site; however, they have not yet been processed. No diagnostic items were identified at the time of the excavation. The site sustained damage during development works and consequently, it could not be completely excavated.
14C. This single-layer prehistoric site (c. 200 sq m) contained a concentration of flint items located in a flat area of loess. Numerous flint items were found at a depth of up to c. 10 cm. Two concentrations of debitage were discerned on the surface, suggesting that flint tools were presumably knapped nearby. Given the finds, which include a Ramon point and lunettes, the site dates to the Late Ramonian culture (Epipalaeolithic period). The site, like Site 14B, sustained damage during development works and part of it was erased.
Site 15. A round cairn (diam. c. 4 m) built of medium-sized stones. In the center of the cairn is a burial compartment (0.4 × 1.1 m) built of stone slabs aligned northwest–southeast. The cairn was discovered devoid of artifacts.
Site 24. This site includes the remains of a field tower, six stone clearance heaps and a sparse scattering of unidentified flint items. The field tower was circular (diam. c. 2.5 m) and constructed of medium-sized stones preserved to a height of three courses (Fig. 3). Two hearths containing modern finds such as sardine cans were discovered in it. A 250 pruta coin and remains of a sandal were found inside the tower. These were probably the remains of a military camp.
One of the heaps (diam. 3.3 m) consisted of large stones, some of them upright (Fig. 4). Two small heaps comprised concentrations of small stones, one (diam. 0.3 m) at the northeastern end of the site and the other (0.15 × 0.20 m) at the eastern end of the site. Another stone heap (diam. 4.5 m), comprised of large fieldstones, was documented not far from the field tower. Only ash was discovered near the base of that heap. Another heap (diam. 4.5 m) of large stones included two circular elements (buildings). In a building or another heap were two rows of stones that were founded along a southeast–northwest axis (length 2.65 m, width 0.55–0.80 m). Both rows were preserved to a height of one course. Some of the stones are set in place on their narrow side.
The sequence of sites excavated in Section D attests to human activity in the Har Harif area over the course of several periods. The flint concentrations are remains of prehistoric sites, probably dating to the Epipaleolithic period, but possibly also from earlier periods. The burial cairns date to the Intermediate Bronze Age. Remains of a modern military camp (Site 24) were also discovered. It was difficult to date the excavated remains because of their poor state of preservation, which was the result of natural factors and modern human intervention, namely development works and antiquities robbery.
