One radiometric date was obtained, which after calibration with a single standard deviation is 7,740-7590 B.C. The site is on a slope, facing westward. It was severly damaged in recent decades by modern agricultural and construction activities. An area of ca. 540 sq. m. was excavated over the years and a number of straight walls and plastered surfaces were unearthed.
