The excavation squares were opened east of a section of earth fill (depth c. 1.5 m), cut mechanically during the construction of a bicycle path. At the outset, disturbed building remains and patches of bedrock  were visible in the squares. In Sq. 1, a single dressed limestone was exposed (W4; 0.32 × 0.51 m, 0.55 m high), apparently the remnant of a wall built on the bedrock (Fig. 2). A soil layer containing pottery vessel sherds from the Mamluk and Ottoman periods (L3). was also exposed. In Sq. 2, part of a rounded installation was uncovered (L7), associated with an earth layer (L6; Fig. 3). The installation comprised one row of medium-sized fieldstones set directly on bedrock, and preserved to a height of one to two courses. Northeast of the installation, signs of rock cuttings were discovered, perhaps cut to level the bedrock prior to construction of another installation that was not preserved.
The soil fills exposed in the section west of the two excavation squares, contained mixed potsherds, due to the disturbance of the site (Fig. 4). The pottery includes body sherds of vessels dated to the Roman and Byzantine periods (not illustrated), bowl sherds dating to the Mamluk period (Fig. 5:1, 2), and body sherds of Rashaya el-Fukhar vessels, dating to the Ottoman period (Fig. 5:3–5). A glass bracelet fragment dating to the Mamluk period was also discovered (Fig. 5:6). Due to the disturbance of the excavation area, it was not possible to date the remains of the structures uncovered; nonetheless, the pottery reflects the settlement periods at the site.
