A final report was published on the last month for documentation of a Roman milestone near Horbat Mishkena that was held in January and March 2017, in the wake of antiquities robbery and development work. The documentation was conducted by IAA employees.

The eastern part of the site contains a burial ground, with the main settlement area located to its west. The Roman Ptolemais (Akko) – Diocaesarea (Zippori) – Tiberias road passed to the south of the site. Over the years, sections of this road were uncovered around the Golani Junction (nowadays intersection).
