A demolished Late Antique ramshackle building with probable farming functions was documented. Three ritual pits of the second phase of the Early Iron Age (8th – 6th centuries BC) were explored in sondage No. 27. They contained Thracian sherds, bones from goats, sheep and ox, and charcoal from oak, poplar and maple. Another ritual pit was discovered to the northeast from the three pits.
