Area Name Main Street East
Description and Bibliography

At the far eastern end of Main Street a series of pedestals were discovered, with remnants of a north-south wall to the east which appears to separate the main gallery complex from the more village-like Eastern Town.26 The pedestals in this area are laid out in one long row, rather than being enclosed in a building, as is the case in Area AA (see above). As well as the pedestals, the excavators noted a significant quantity of bread mold fragments, and within one square a major deposit of stone tool working debris suggests that this area was used for the production of lithic knives and blades.
