Description of view 2005-9-15jW Subview closeup of the inside (N) face of wall, f11, showing the packing, f80, which is called bakhia locally. Although the picture could have been more sharply focused, one can clearly see the mortar-like bakhia which surrounds the stones of the wall. We believe that the bakhia acted like a permiable membrane to regulate the flow of water through the wall structure without weakening the wall or damining the water behind it. (Bakhia is a mixture of reddish clay and small kernals of limstone.) [Input file: P918JW2.J / P918JW2.-J]
