Excavations were carried out on all three of the tells making up the site, continuing investigations started in previous seasons. A small test pit (5 x 5 m) on the slope of the Eastern Kom was excavated and backfilled. Post-processing work was conducted on site, dealing with the pottery, flint and other stone tools, as well as the human and animal remains.
