Area Name Big Backhoe Trench South
Description and Bibliography

As the name suggests, this "area" is defined by a major modern intervention (a large backhoe gouge) into the archaeological area. As is often the case in these circumstances, although highly destructive, this machine-made cut revealed some of the deeper stratigraphy of the site, which AREA has investigated.12
