Around the cyclopic fortress of Lchashen, there are also the remains of an ancient settlement, which date back to the 4th millennium BCE. Excavations have revealed that the settlement had straight streets lined by round and rectangular structures. In this picture, we see indentations carved into stone, which were used for storing liquid matter or goods.
