THE MORTAR DISTRICT
 
Also called the Industrial Sector, the Mortar District gets its name from some stone circles that Bingham found carved into rocks embedded in the floor of one of the houses. He judged them to be mortars for crushing grain although modern-day historians donít give much credence to this theory.
