Description

The settlement was established on a elevation to the west. Foundations of late buildings can be traced on the surface of the eastern slope. The northern slope was ploughed and turned into a field. Architectural remains revealed by ploughing were piled at certain spots. According to the villagers there are EBA graves on the southern slopes of the hill.
