Central Area 6

The Takahashi Sebone Sites contain a settlement dating from the 2nd and 3rd centuries. Excavation was carried out between 1990 and 1991, when 16 tateana (pit-type) dwellings and 5 homes with posts dug into the ground were uncovered. The middle of the settlement was clear and surrounded by homes with posts dug into the ground.
Four tateana (pit-type) dwellings were found to have been burned down. Charred posts and earth remained inside the dwellings. These are important materials that tell us about the upper structure of the buildings. Earthenware that was clearly being used when the fire struck made us imagine how people rushed to escape it. Comma-shaped stones and cylindrical beads made of green-colored tuff that were excavated show that people were engaged in jewel making.
