Field work renewed at Eynan in 1996 was devoted to clarify the site and to excavate the upper, Final Natufian, layer. It was shown that remains are still found 25 m east of the main excavated area. More than one
layer of architecture with oval dwellings (previously not documented stage) and additional graves were uncovered in the Final Natufian. L quantities of material - inckuding some obsidian - were collected, but remains are not preserved. Analysis of this material shows that the Final N people maintained former traditions although some aspects forshadow the PPNA. Future work should clarify the way of life, especially the ques sedentism at this time period
