Description The levels IX and VIII were noted with some stone foundations. At level VI ten rectangular and square buildings have been partially or completely excavated. The houses were arranged around a central courtyard, attached to each other as groups of large building compounds. The groups of houses were separated from each other by small courtyards. The walls of the houses were plastered with mud and about 1 m in thickness, constructed with mudbricks over stone foundations. Some walls, especially the dividing walls, were made in wattle and daub. The floors were made of compressed clay and were burnished. The door spaces were in the middle of the longer walls and in almost every building were quadrangular ovens with ash containers which were located at the wall opposite the door. The two burials found inside the settlement had been placed in hocker position.
