Archaeological excavations

It was excavated by a team from the Brandeis University[2] from 1976 to 1984—under Ian Todd's leadership. Excavations were carried out each summer from 1976 though 1979, and a final summer season took place in 1984. The excavations were funded for the first four seasons by the National Science Foundation (USA).
