Description No substantial architecture was found here, but a series of four stone pavements was detected at different Ievels. The top of the virgin soil does not have an even surface but is associated with several shallow and amorphously-shaped depressions that are filled with cultural deposits. The well-preserved lowermost stone pavement is partly laid directly on the virgin soil but also covers these depressions. Pebble stones and flints, including worked artifacts, are densely paved, and a number of animal bones are also found on the pavement. The three stone pavements found in the upper layers basically have the same structures, but they are not so well preserved. lt can be assumed that a series of these stone pavements is the outcome of levelling activities and this sector functioned as an open space or plaza throughout this phase.
