Description/Count
Description 2006-10-9jW A thick surface of baqaya sloping sharply down the surface of the temple mound from the BA temple to the north to the revetment wall to the south in k13. It links with an identical surface, f50, discovered to the south in k12 in season MZ18. It formed the original surface of the mound when it was constructed and undoubtedly facilitated the runoff of water during periods of rain. Baqaya, the local virgin soil, has the property of percolating slowly any water which sits on its surface. [Input file: QX09JW.J / QX09JW.-J]

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2010-9-13jW After thoroughly cleaning the surrounding area, we removed the portion of the baqaya surface which formed the top of k110. Few sherds were recovered. [Input file: U914JW.J***F109,_F346-FF348._EDITED_BY_JW_ON_925._TC'S_MOVED_TO_FILE_W414JW.J. / U914JW.-J***F109,_F346-FF348._EDITED_BY_JW_ON_925._TC'S_MOVED_TO_FILE_W414JW.-J.]
Argument 2010-9-13jW For the following reasons we determined that the baqaya surface, f109, provided an excellent seal to the material below it:
It was contiguous over the entire locus;
It was at least 5cm thick everywhere; When picked it came off in sheets and chunks;
It was extremely hard. [Input file: U914JW.J***F109,_F346-FF348._EDITED_BY_JW_ON_925._TC'S_MOVED_TO_FILE_W414JW.J. / U914JW.-J***F109,_F346-FF348._EDITED_BY_JW_ON_925._TC'S_MOVED_TO_FILE_W414JW.-J.]
