Location and geographical Features

 

Description

The small mound rises on a semi-circle natural rock. Pottery shards were found scattered on the natural hill immediately to the North of the mound. A creek flows to its West, while a dry waterbed runs near the South slopes. The mound is in a basin sloping towards the South, on the passage opening towards the same direction. Northern and northeastern parts are used for agriculture. South slope is rugged.
