Description 2006-8-19vVE f548 is a natural accumulation that is covered by compacted surface f547. It is a crumbly pale brown deposit with some pebbles in it. It is very similar to the deposits that lie on top of it, but it is relatively hard. It is also remarkable that a lot more pottery sherds were found in this deposit than in the younger deposits.

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2006-8-19vVE After removing the compacted surface f547 we continued to excavate the underlying natural deposit f548. [Input file: Q819VE1.J / Q819VE1.-J]
2006-8-24vVE The remains of f548 that still were in the East baulk of k107 were excavated today. A lot of pottery and two large floating boulders ( f561 and f562) were found in this deposit. [Input file: Q824VE.J / Q824VE.-J]

Stratigraphic reasons 2012-9-8jW Natural accumulation covered by accumulation f547. Stratigraphically dates to post-Mittani period of unorganized occupation. [Input file: W908JW1.J / W908JW1.-J]
Typological reasons 2012-9-8jW Ceramics have not been fully analyzed and the few items recovered are ubiquitous. [Input file: W908JW1.J / W908JW1.-J]
Notes on time sequencing 2006-9-4vVE f548 was covered by the naturally compacted surface of f547 and lies on top of the final deposit, f550, that covered the second apron f556. Since we have assigned s10 to f550, f548 has to be s7. Stratum s7 was defined as layers covering the terrace after its sacral function had been lost. This fits very well the description of f537.
