The two final construction events (maroon walls), the last that are attested in the surviving remains and the excavation records, demonstrate that the alignment of buildings from the three previous phases was abandoned. Whether this was a conscious decision or not remains unknown. As with so many of our questions for this final period, much information has been lost through the plough and also through natural erosion since their excavation nearly 40 years ago (Figure 38).
