The Wadi Matafah in Dhofar on the high eastern terrace revealed the presence of a large Neolithic village (Phase II). Over twenty house foundations were mapped. In Area G House 1 was selected for excavation (see other drawing). These houses undoubtedly contained an organic superstructure of thatch, reeds, and/or wood. A heavy scatter of flint materials was found in and around the houses. A number of obsidian pieces came from these houses.
