text: Large, apparently undefended site. House-platforms, many with stone facings surviving in sheltered places, said to number 100- 200. Site divided in two by deep (15'-20') gully running N-S, apparently artificial; abrupt transition in upper reached from shallow U-contour to steep V-contour, strongly suggesting artificial ditch. Site under jungle.
