West of Tel Malot, fourteen pit graves were uncovered, dating from Middle Bronze Age I until the Iron Age. The burial offerings placed within the graves include locally produced pottery vessels alongside Cypriot imports, jewelry and scarabs. The graves are part of an ancient cemetery adjacent to the tell.
A rock-hewn, kokhim-type burial cave was exposed on Diskin Street, Jerusalem. It yielded a few potsherds, including a knife-pared lamp, dating to the Early Roman period. Ten ossuaries made of soft limestone were found; two of them are inscribed with names in Greek and in Hebrew, alluding to the Jewish origin of the interred. This cave fits well within the presently known boundaries of the ancient cemetery of Jerusalem during the first century CE.
Along the exterior of the Old City wall in Jerusalem, near the New Gate, several defense elements were unearthed beneath the Ottoman wall, including stone courses, a rock-cut moat and towers. These findings make it possible to suggest a new reconstruction of the development of the fortification system of the city from the Roman–Byzantine periods to the Earlty Islamic, Medieval and Ottoman periods.
Fifty-seven lead ingots were discovered on the seabed west of Tel Ashqelon, their total average weight reaching c. 4 tons. These finds shed light on the nature of shipping and commerce along the Ashqelon coast during the eleventh–thirteenth centuries CE. A survey of the written evidence, concerning the importation of lead into Israel, is encountered, as well as an attempt to reconstruct the vessel type that transported the lead and the reason for its wreckage.
The excavation at Tell Umm al-Fajar, located in the heart of Moshav Ben ‘Ami in the western Galilee, revealed an agricultural settlement that produced sugar from the Fatimid period until the Ottoman period, as indicated by the numerous sugar vessels that were found.
