Description of view 2005-8-25rE This sub-view shows the bakhia layer, f50. Although at first we thought that it was the top surface of the temple mound, this photo illustrates that it abuts the wall about 50cm. below the top, and therefore must be an intermediate surface, perhaps marking the end of seasonal construction. Several more layers of fill would have been subsequently placed above f50 and another layer of bakhia, bricks and stones would have marked the true top. This photo shows that the N-S line of limestone blocks, f72, were laid atop the highest layer of fill, f34, that we can positively associate with the temple mound. It is possible that they were a part of the apron system, f10. One can also see the limestone blocks, f66-68, hanging over the north edge of the wall, necessitating their removal when we began to excavate directly below them.
