Notes:
 Seven to ten buildings, mud brick with stone foundations. Most buildings eroded to their foundations, but two or three have substantial superstructures, making me think that this is a 2-period site.

(1/4/08) Google Earth imagery shows that two new building have been erected on this site, apparently destroying the largest standing archaeological structures.
