Description Level 3 contains 5 building phases (3A-3E) and was exposed in the deep trench 4GH. It is considered as a transitional stage between Levels 4 and 2. The layout of the settlement is very similar to Level 4 with free-standing separate houses and open areas/courts, rectangular or trapezoidal houses with one to two rooms; kerpiç was used for walls, at least in phase 3A; burials took place under the floor level of the buildings --> continuity in burial customs; the external activity area from the previous level (close to Building 3 in Level 4) is still in function and shows remains of various activities (-->fire installations, concentrations of ashy areas, pits, stone installations)
