Goshi buildings 8: soil is gathering around, and plants are growing over, this mound of building material, broken furniture and domestic and agricultural rubbish. It is a normal archaeological deposit, a good information source.

But this mound has layers, and if archaeologists studied it without knowing its history, they would not know that the deeper layers, from further back in time, were the product and evidence of the destruction of a community.
