Description A total of 22 simple earth graves was exposed in different levels of the Late Neolthic in the first three excavation seasons. There is no uniformity of orientation in the skeletons which are mostly burried in the hocker style. Eight of the skeletons are children/infants, while 14 of them are adults. Unfortunately, all of these skeletons are in a poor stat of preservation as the soil matrix of the mound is rather calcareous. some of the graves are under the floors of the houses. In the graves where the adults are buried, vessels were left near the head and the foot.
