Further notes and photograph by J. Rowland, 2005:
When farmers dig in the fields they find what they describe as parts of walls in red bricks. The walls are between 70-100cm. thick. In the past there was a large kom where the houses are now, however, this was levelled at around the time of King Farouk. The village still rises up to 3-4m above the surrounding land at its highest point. During the digging of a well an old pottery vessel was seen, however, this is not visible to us. When the fields have been ploughed in the past, tractors have hit stones and on investigation they say that there appears to be a channel running under the ground but no-one has dug this. A large recently ploughed and planted field was walked over and a large number of sherds noticed, although few are diagnostic. Some were Late Antique - Byzantine date.
