Five excavation squares were opened (Figs. 2, 3), yielding architectural remains. A wall unearthed in the two northern squares (W108; Fig. 4) was built of kurkar stones and coated with white plaster. The wall was excavated to a depth of 1 m, revealing that its foundations were built of small kurkar stones (Fig. 5). Traces of a room were uncovered in the southern squares; its walls (W111, W113, W114) were built of undressed kurkar stones and preserved to a height of two courses. Based on the building style, the remains belong to the Arab village of Al-Qubibah from the late British Mandate era. Other remains of this village were previously discovered nearby, together with more ancient ruins and finds (Jakoel 2016; Marmelstein 2020; see further references in both).
