Description of view 2005-9-13jW This view, a series of three photographs of the combined west baulks of loci k12, k101, and k11 shows the accumulations and fills on either side of the monumental wall, f11. The purpose is to aid in the understanding of how the temple BA mound behind f11 was constructed and what it looked liked before it was abandoned. Originally we believed that the extensive bakhia layer f50 was the top of the mound in antiquity. However, subsequent layers of fill, f42/ f90, f38, and f34 were placed on top of it and sealed again with a layer of bakhia, f83, (only a small part of which survived being eroded by water and wind after abandonment) and a level platform of bricks, f84, whose function is unknown. This photo is a closeup taken just N of the wall, f11. It illustrates the interface of the fill layers f34 and f38 with the wall and the remnants of the brick platform, f84, and bakhia, f83, which formed the top of the temple mound from the time of construction during the Early Dynastic period to as late as the Mittani period.
