Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2010-9-13jW After cleaning around the locus, we began to remove the baqaya glacis, f109, which coated the temple mound. At the dirction of mKB we did not collect sherds because several years of erosion had diminished their value for providing data about when they were deposited. 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.
Below f109 was a layer of bricky material, f346, with many of the same characteristics as f109. It was reddish with calcite nodules and it came off in sheets and chunks. In places, particularly in the eastern half, it had been eroded and replaced with an ashy layer, f347, which in turn covered what appears to be baqaya bricks laid on edge with brownish mortar.
