According to the Public Relations Department of the Institute, during the diggings, pottery belonging to the Kur-Araz culture, various tools made of bone and stone, two bronze pendants, a model of a clay wheel, a stone token (a figure used for exchange, computational purposes, etc.), a zoomorphic clay figure were found.
Remains of buildings discovered this season differ from those found in previous years due to their characteristics. Thus, it is of great interest to find five poles, two brick columns, as well as a door at the back of the brick columns, but the entrance, which was later built of raw bricks, inside the cleaned drill-type house.
Identifying a circular house built of 19 rows of bricks in the northern part of the site can also be considered a great innovation. Besides, hearths and household wells were discovered. One of the interesting facts is that as a result of clearing the central part of the excavation site, a huge house's pillars were observed.
Remains of buildings and specimens of material culture belong to the end of the IV millennium B.C. - the beginning of the III millennium B.C.
