Sector 2 is positioned in the north-east corner on the inner side of the monumental fortification wall and it covers the area of strongest architectural constructions demolished in the 1963 earthquake. This space was mostly often dug with trial trenches in different directions, That is why the goal of the excavations in Sector 2 is first of all rehabilitation of the existing depressions made by the different ground, preservation and archaeological works and their connection in a bigger and fully researched area. Because of these reasons, the area planned to be excavated has been divided into two parts from the very beginning: sector 2 and sector 2A. In sector 2 there are small vestiges of Ottoman architecture, and many, mainly waste and storage pits that were used throughout the Middle Ages and the Ottoman period. The plentiful pottery discovered in the pits provides good collections of medieval and Ottoman ceramics, as well as numerous finds of metal objects, tools, bronze jewellery, coins, etc. The complete area looks as if it was used to store the leftovers of the various crafts and waste of the Middle Ages and Ottoman period.
The excavations that have lasted for two and a half months in the sector 2A of the Skopje fortress are conducted under the modern construction of the old prison, whose foundations are two meters deep in the older cultural layers; this facility had destroyed, that is, fully dug out the layers from Ottoman times. Therefore, medieval layers have been researched in this sector from the beginning. Despite the big damages, a XIV century wall construction was discovered, a XIII century round wall, as well as parts of a X century construction. More than 80 bronze coins and a silver coin are among the movable finds. Frequent finds are parts of various objects – tools used in the production, which indicates the existence of certain production or craft workshops in the vicinity. This is also indicated by the several spatial waste pits where there are different types of finds of various materials, such as: glass bracelets, bronze earrings, bronze rings, lead seals, diverse ceramic pots, as well as some rare luxurious specimen of Byzantine glazed vessels, etc.
