18 - Group II: freestanding hut IIa

 

No precise function has been ascribed to this hut by Mr. Viala. Yet, what is left of a former hearth and chimney clearly points to the building having been used - or reused - as a dwelling.

 

19 - Ditto: view of the gable-wall façade

 

 

20- Former wheat-threshing yard

Christian Lassure

 

A large, flat expanse of outcropping rock can be seen at the back of Group Ia. A channel cut into the stone serves to evacuate rainwater.
