Description 2010-9-15jW This feature in k12 consists of fill beneath a hard-crusted, steeply sloping surface descending from north to south. It has sections of mudbrick laid in gray mortar. The organization of the bricks is irregular and at first jW believed it to be brickfall from wall, f348. However it extends west past the apparent west face of f348 and appears uniform in slope in the four meter section that we see in k12. [Input file: U915JW.J / U915JW.-J]
2010-10-7jW We originally thought that this feature was a glacis consisting of bricks with a crusty surface. Upon removal we see that it had two components; a crusty surface, re-designated f368 and a bricky fill to the south of the south face of wall, f348. The fill will remain designated f351 and probably consisted of the brick and mortar debris from the shaving of the top of wall, f348, to form the glacis. [Input file: V206JW.J / V206JW.-J]

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Argument 2010-9-28jW We initially labeled this feature as a glacis because of its steep slope N to S and its crusty surface covering reddish material. As we scraped the crust away, regular brickwork, clearly a southward extension of wall, f348 was evident in the eastern and central portions of the locus. At the southern end, the material became softer, and, in analyzing the ceramics from q431, mKB noticed a large quantity of large sherds and two relatively complete vessels ( i29, i30). In addition the cache of tokens ( q431.2 or i35) was found there. mKB suggested that this feature had the characteristics of a floor accumulation (aa). Further excavation revealed that f351 indeed covered a relatively flat brick surface, f363, which we did not excavate this season. During the stratigraphic anlysis attended by gB, mKB, fAB, and jW, gB suggested that the crust was indeed a glacis, which we did not recognize at the time of excavation and which is so thin that it does not appear in the north section. Due to the overwhelming indirect evidence of its existance, we designated the crust glacis, f368. [Input file: UX07JW1.J / UX07JW1.-J]

Stratigraphic reasons 2012-10-7jW This feature is fill, well sealed by two glacis, f50 and f368, which direcly covers it. Among other things it contains the debris from reshaping of the temple mound. Burial, a22, convincingly dated to the LC3 period was dug into it. [Input file: WX07JW.J / WX07JW.-J]
