Description This level presents three houses of the "Two-tier channel type". But there is also an other house type: The main units consisted of eigth chambers and was closed off from the front unit by a joint. The house was built on a foundation platform which consists of six wall strips built of large blocks. The intervals left within the raised platform were covered with stone slabs to form channels under the floor. Set apart from other structures, there was a Cult Building found. In This level, too, a dozen "roasting pits" or "basal pits" were recorded.
