Description The building remains display the significant changes that had taken place in architectural practices. The buildings had stone foundations of 80-90 cm in thickness. The architecture is represented by two superimposed buildings: A one-roomed building from Late Neolithic 2, oblique in plan, measuring 7,1 x 5,2 m. The southwestern corner of this building joins up with a wall almost 1 m in thickness where 10 m could be exposed. The massive foundations of this wall imply that it might be part of a defence system. The building from Late Neolithic 1 was 7,6 x 4,2 m and had a thick stone foundation and was built on the debris of the previous settlement. The door opened in a westward direction and had a single row of stones as a threshold. Appended to the northern wall of the building was another structure with dimensions 4 x 6+ m. The walls were made of stone foundations and on the inside of this building were four parallel rows of stones.
