The excavation area lay along the southern bank of Nahal El-‘Al in the southern Golan, in a multi-strata site where remains dating from the Chalcolithic period and from the Roman to Ottoman periods were previously identified (Hartal and Ben-Ephraim 2012: Site 34). A prior excavation at the site revealed architectural remains that probably belong to a public building dating from the Roman period (Permit No. A-7143; G. Cinamon, pers. comm.; Fig. 2).

In the current excavation, four half-squares (50 sq m) were opened on the site’s western edge, which had been disturbed by modern construction. The basalt rock surface yielded abundant pottery consisting mainly of jar fragments (not drawn) dating from the Hellenistic–Roman periods.
