Description/Count
Description 2005-8-4rE set by surveyor but not excavated in season MZ18 [Input file: P823GM2.J / P823GM2.-J]

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2006-8-26jW After drawing and photographing the north part of the east baulk, we began to remove it. [Input file: Q826JW.J / Q826JW.-J]
2006-8-27jW removed the east baulk of the locus. [Input file: Q827JW.J / Q827JW.-J]
C99.NRecovery 2006-8-27jW As we were establishing the relationship between the packed mud glacis, f152 and the baqaya glacis, f109, we noticed an apparent discontinuity in the baqaya in the far northeast corner of the locus. A few days earlier, while excavavating with the big pick in the same place, we found an apparently isolated, broken, reddish brick. During this exploration of the baqaya we noticed in the baulk a brick, f192 that abutted the baqaya, indicating that there may have been a structure either of brick or with a brick foundation at this location.

Deposition
H99.NDepostn 2006-8-27jW In order to help determine whether floor f173 overlaid or was a part of the packed mud glacis, f152, of the temple mound, we took elevations at each corner and the middle. All elevations were within two centimeters of 9197. This and the presence of sherds that were laying flat suggest that the surface was a floor separate from the mud glacis. However, gB looked at the surface of both and determined that they were formed from the same material. This suggests that they were deposited at the same time and were parts of a single feature. jW noticed that the sherds in the glacis to the north of the floor were randomly oriented while the sherds of f173 were laying flat. This does not mean that the surfaces were of differing strata, but rather that people probaly walked on the flat part. Therefore the better interpretation is that f173 and f152 are part of the same glacis packing, were deposited at the same time, but served somewhat different functions.

2006-8-27jW Therefore it is clear that the packed mud glacis was added atop the baqaya glacis at a later date. [Input file: Q827JW.J / Q827JW.-J]

Time sequencing
Notes on time sequencing 2006-8-27jW When we reached the gray accumulation in k22, f111, we questioned the relationship among this feature, the packed mud glacis, f152 and the baqaya glacis, f109. As we traced f109 from k13 to k23 we found that the baqaya extended beneath the packed mud. Furthermore, f111, previously assumed to be an ashy accumulatiom covering the baqaya, was in fact a continuation of the packed mud to the east. [Input file: Q827JW.J / Q827JW.-J]
