Evidence: Eneolithic | Bronze Age | Iron Age | Antique | Albanian | Medieval | Post-Medieval

This site is represented by relatively large numbers of storage pits with hearths and some evidence for structures. Excavations were carried out along both pipelines giving a good indication of the lateral spread of the site, covering at least 30m by 60m. Eneolithic pottery was found in a 200mm-thick horizon over most of this area. The traces of arable farming and later activity on site made identification of some of the higher features more difficult, especially in the south-west portion of the excavation where potential floor surfaces were seen. The major structural element was a mud-walled two-room structure to the north-west.

The relative thinness of the deposits has probably resulted in the lack of the full range of Eneolithic cultural remains, although a figurine has been found here. This may also be reflected in the fact that this site may be later than the other two major sites, if the evidence presented for early Bronze Age settlement indicates continuity of use through this transition.
