ARCHITECTURAL REMAINS At SHAPINUWA :


Building B In 1995, excavations started at Kadilar Hoyuk, 150 metres southeast of building "A". At the foundation of building "B", plain-cut blocks have been uncovered. On top of these foundation blocks which are arranged in two rows, 110 cm. wide mud-brick walls were found. These mud-brick walls were covered with a well-polished, straw-added, 3.5 - 4 cm. thick plaster.

Beside the ground level of this building, a second storey made of an intense timber structure was evidenced with the burned beams which have fallen down with the remains of another storey. Only a section of this building full of earthenware jars, which, therefore, may be called a depot, has been excavated. There are over 30 large jars found until now where food or drink was kept.
