These were the first grids acquired, in their numbered sequence. Grid 1 was the first area chosen for accessibility in the middle of a huge general area laid out by Dr. Aren Maeir based on many years of experience working at Tell es-Safi, and based on an educated "best guess" as to where the trench should lead. Transects were acquired in a somewhat coarse grid (every 1-2 meters) so as to cover as much ground as possible in a reasonable amount of time. The raised berm area lies to the east (at right of surveyed area).
