Description/Count
Description 1999-W---rE Broad area of hard-packed fill, below accumulation f33, throughout locus k12. This signaled an abrupt change from the previous accumulation, which was relatively soft, brown soil with pockets of laminations, bricky material and ash. Originally we thought f34 consisted of laminations formed when soil washed down from the temple mound and was contained by the massive wall, f11, just to the south and the top of which we are just beginning to uncover. As seen in section in the north and west baulks after excavation, it appears more likely that this feature was the top layer of packed fill that was part of the original construction of the temple mound. (Fill, f34, was originally covered by a layer of bakhia, f83, which, except for a small segment seen in the west baulk, has subsequently been eroded away) This identification as packed fill better accounts for the the abrupt change in density.
