Two squares were excavated (A, B; 25 sq m each, located c. 200 m apart).
Square A
The square was opened next to the water pipeline trench and the excavations exposed a stone layer founded above the weathered limestone and basalt bedrock was exposed. Fragments of pottery vessels and basalt grinding tools that date to the Intermediate Bronze Age were discovered in the vicinity of the stones and between them.
Square B
The square was opened in a region covered with alluvium. Limestone bedrock surfaces were exposed and above them a few fragments of pottery vessels dating to the Intermediate Bronze Age. The area inside the square had been damaged during the installation of a modern drainage pipe.
The periphery of the Murhan antiquities site, which dates to the Intermediate Bronze Age, was exposed in the excavation. Fragments of numerous grinding and pounding implements were found on the surface near the squares. The many remains that were discovered in surveys and excavations, as well as when damage was caused by modern activity and antiquities robbery, show that extensive agricultural activity transpired in the early settlement. The dozens of basalt mortars and grinding stones that were found point to Murhan as a key site, which is important to the study of the latter part of the third millennium BCE.
