Description/Count
Description 2006-8-15vVE Feature f532 is the continuation to the west in J3 of the second apron excavated in J2. Also, during MZ 18, the westernmost end of this second apron had already been excavated as feature f10 in J3 k12 to establish the connection between the apron and the revetment wall. f532 is a stone installation: it consists of several rows of large boulders that were set on top of each other with each row stepped back from the lower row. [Input file: Q815VE.J / Q815VE.-J]

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2006-8-15vVE The top stones of the second apron had been visible in the German trench BA from the start of the season and were now designated as f532. It could be that since the German team excavated this feature several stones have fallen from their original place. [Input file: Q815VE.J / Q815VE.-J]
2006-8-19vVE f549 consists of several large boulders that were part of f532 but that have since the time that the Germans excavated them moved from their original positions. The components of f549 are thus really a part of f532, but the designation f549 had to be created in order to relay the dislocated stones. On the basis of the comparison between the views v514 ( f532 immediately after excavation) and v504 ( f532 at the start of thsi season) I have made template t514. t514 is a tentative reconstruction of from where the stones were dislodged.

Problems in recording 2006-8-20vVE The stepped stone structure visible in J2 that we call the Second Apron continues in both k107 and k2. This part of the second apron was assigned the feature number f532. After continuing our excavations however it has become clear that the part of the second apron in k107 is different from the part in k2. In k107 the stone structure still seems to be stepped while in k02 it obviously is not. Therefore I decided to assign a new feature number, f556, to the stepped component of the second apron in k107. It is important to note that in the entries of the previous days when f532 was discussed we might have been also talking about f556. [Input file: Q820VE.J / Q820VE.-J]

Other reasons 2012-8-26jW This stratum assignment was an interpolation of more secure assignments to abutting apron features f556 to the east and f10 to the west. We did not remove any of the aprons to expose their foundations. We presume that the aprons were swept clean as long as they were in use, so the overlaying accumulations can at best be used to date the abandonment of the aprons. Apron f556 was tentatively dated to stratum s148a by excavating material in a gap between it and the revetment wall. Because the stonework of f532 is more crude, we assume it was built somewhat later when construction resources were not as plentiful. [Input file: W826JW.J / W826JW.-J]

Notes on time sequencing 2006-9-4vVE Strata 12 is defined by the building of the second apron, i.e. f532 and f556. The section of the East side of the East baulk of k107 has shown that the Second Apron was built soon after stones were added to the top of the revetment wall, i.e. f591. Since both these rebuildings show a significant change in the concept of the monumental staircase and the temple terrace, I have decided to assign f591 to Stratum S12d and the second apron to s12c.
