The main archaeological investigations took place over a period of nine weeks and the works concentrated on the Roman house, the first wall of which was discovered in 2010. A large square with the preserved floor of a small pool in the middle was identified. Underneath, the team found the bottom of a Hellenistic quarry. Two more rooms were brought to light in the south and a staircase was investigated in the north-east corner of the courtyard.

In another area, two late medieval burials, one of a child and the other of a teenager were excavated.
