Between 1959 and 1964, Jacob Kaplan conducted salvage excavations at the north end of Tel Yafo in Areas B, D, F, and G. These trenches, in and around the Ottoman bathhouse, exposed remains of the Iron Age, and possibly Middle Bronze Age ramparts at the site. Additional finds, particularly in a narrow trench in Area G, included occupational phases dated to the Iron IIB-C, Hellenistic, Roman, Islamic and Crusader periods.
