Description During the Shrine and Sanctuaries Phases the settlement became a centre for religious ceremonies. During the Shrine Phase a cult building and a service building were constructed. After a fire that brought this phase to an end there may not have been any building construction, but evidently this area sustained its function as a sacred place, suggesting that this must have been considered a kind of a pilgrimage area.
