--IT719Two new loci will be designated: k105 is to the north and west and ranges in width from one to two meters. k106 is to the south and east and ranges in width from one to two meters. They about each other at the buttresses, f155 and f161. The escarpment has already been exposed in J1. Although ideally one could follow it to the west along the revetment wall face, there are two layers of cut stone blocks which seem to abut the revetment wall, atop the escarpment's path. As a result, we will first dig down at the western end and follow to the southeast any revetment wall and any escarpment. If the escarpment slopes severely down it indicates that the tell was mounded in that region in Late Chalcolithic times. A severe slope also means that the staircase was probably part of the Third Millennium temple mound and plaza. If the escarment is relatively level and uniformly deep, it means that the staircase was built late atop Third Millennium structures, most likely in the Mittani period. [T719JW.J]
--I.riS709On the basis of our initial excavations on the temple complex, it was assumed that its general form was symmetrical and that it formed an oval, walled in stone and sitting above an open plaza, with the temple at the center and possibly with several points of access. Based on the excavations of the last two seasons and on an extensive geophysical survey, we have modified our hypothesis. Among other things, the formal boundary of the temple complex now seems to be confined to the southwest. The eastern part may well end at the staircase. Excavations in unit J1 in the MZ19 season (2006-Q) revealed that, at its western extremity, the revetment wall made a sharp turn to the north. Furhermore the wall in that vicinity seemed to comprise a double line of stones, separated by about 5 meters with possibly a paving of large flat stones between them. This season, we wish to follow this wall to the north, to determine the nature of the relationship of the components of that part of the wall system, and to determine the physical links, if any, between the temple complex and the Tupkish palace. The geomagnetic survey data show there may be a northern boundary to the plaza in this general location, possibly through a link with a substantial building, which may be associated with the palace. Sharing importance with excavation will be the production of a completed field portion of the global record by the close of the study season in late September. [S709JW1.J]
--I.riS920The ending numbers for selected constituents are as follows: aggregates = a2; features = f200; items = i31; q-lots = q284; relays = r1164; views = v144; drawings = w25; plots = p63; sketches = sk44. [S920JW.J]
--I.riT719At the end of the MZ21 excavation season, we had exposed at least the first meter of the southern face of the revetment wall of the BA Temple mound. In addition, we excavated additional monumental stonework, including a staircase of five steps, at the western end of the revetment wall. This staircase is considerably higher than the monumental staircase at the eastern end of the revetment wall excavated as part of J2 in prior seasons. We tentatively dated this stonework to the late Mittani period by analysis of the ceramics which were layered against the staircase and associated wall extension, as well as in shallow probes behind those features. The revetment wall has been securely dated to the Early Dynastic period and the excavations in J1 and J3 immediately to the east of J5 show that the revetment wall was built atop structures that are dated to the Late Chalcolithic period. The research question to be addressed this season is to verify the date of the western extension without destroying it. If the western structures (higher than their counterparts to the east) are Early Dynastic, then they must have been built atop Late Chalcolithic structures which rose in elevation west of J1. If the western structures are Mittani, then they could have been built atop Early Dynastic structures at the same elevation as the revetment wall. To test the hypothesis, we intend to expose the south face of the eastern part of the revetment wall and the west face of the western wall system until we reach the escarpments of each. The area that will be excavated is bounded by the walls to the east and north and the baulks of loci k32 and k100 to the south and west. [T719JW.J]
-ACT815Ahmed Hawaz cut his finger while moving a large stone from near the west baulk of k106. [T815JW.J]
-ACT816Just after breakfast, Anwar slipped on the stairs of f205 and hurt his wrists. After a consultation with Kamiran, jW dismissed him to seek medical care. [T816JW.J]
-AC.riS806Removal man Karghraman, while standing on a baulk and leanining on a tent pole, fell into the excavation when the support for the pole gave way. Fortunately, he was not injured. All workmen and staff were warned to be more careful in the future. [S807JW.J]
-DYS826gB assigned a project to excavate a walkway along the south face of revetment wall, f3, from J1 into the southeastern corner of J5. Its purpose is to emphasize that the wall spans several excavation units. [S826JW.J]
-DYT720At the start of the day, we set all workmen to clean the area of J5, removing trash and green plants. Then, we organized into two groups to begin excavating the surface soil that had accumulated over the winter and covered the last features exposed in MZ21 (2008-S) to the south and west of the revetment wall system that we want to dig this year. To facilitate paperwork we designated this part of the area a separate locus, k104. When the surface soil, f201, was cleared, we began to excavate soil features f74 to the northwest and f158 to the southeast. We plan to leave baulks at the northwest and southeast extremities of this locus. [T720JW.J]
-DYT725eA and sE drew the section of the east face of k106 in the afternoon so that removal of accumulation, f158, to trace escarpment, f169 to the west could continue. [T725JW.J]
-DYT811In k106 we completed the test probe towards the wall by excavating the balance of the f241 layered escarpment toward the revetment wall, f189. There was no evidence of a single, sloping mass of baqaya as the layers each continued northward against the wall face. At the bottom, we noticed that the stone escarpment, ^esc1, had another row of stones to the north which either abutted or bonded with the wall. We removed the remaining Mittani accumulation of f243, south of the Third Millennium sherd layer, f242. Then, we excavated f242 westward, uncovering additional stones of the sloping part of the stone escarpment, ^esc1. Also, we removed an additional layer of Mittani accumulation, f252, from atop the Third Millennium layered escarpment, ^esc2, so that when we excavate it we will minimize any chances of contamination with later material.
In k105 we removed an accumulation, f253, which covered what appears to be a pebble floor, f254, and its retaining wall, f255. We also uncovered a fourth stone, f257, which may be associated with stone stairs, f205. The stone, f257, is perpendiclar to stone wall, f41. [T811JW.J]
-DYT812In k106 we continued to excavate west in f252 and f242 in a strip about one meter wide next to the north baulk of k100. The purpose was to expose the southernmost rows of stones of ^esc1, f225. As we proceeded northward, the lowest row of stones disappeared, and the next highest was covered by a dense layer of sherds. This may indicate that we are reaching the west end of the Third Millennium revetment wall, f189.
In k105 we cleared the last of the sloping surface, f251 from atop the brick wall, a11. [T812JW.J]
-DYT813In k105, we concentrated our attention in three areas, north and south of the brick wall, f255; and in the southeastern corner, near the baulk separating k105 from k106 to the east. In the southeast corner of pebble fill, f254, adjacent to f255, we exposed a fifth "step" of the stepped stone structure, f205. It was below and south of the fourth "step" f257. To the south of the southeast corner of wall, a11, we made a small test probe to find the bottom of wall, f41. The accumulation just above what we believe to be the bottom was very clean and had few sherds. However, mKB and hQ evaluated them as from Phase 3 (JPB sequence). This is the earliest material found so far in k105. At this level, we also discovered a large, flat stone oriented, southeast to northwest, f265, about 50cm west of wall, f41. Between this stone and the wall was a surface of broken stones, f267. In the southeast corner we continued to remove accumulations above what we hypothesize is the stone escarpment to the revetment wall, f189, assuming that it continues to the west from k106 into k105.In k106 we continued to excavate to the west, following the southernmost line of stones of ^esc1. We also began to excavate a two-meter wide sounding next to the entire extent of the west baulk of k106. After one pick run we encountered a hard, reddish mass of soil, f268, which may have served as part of ^esc2 during one of the use phases of the revetment wall, f189. [T813JW.J]
-DYT816In the northern sector of k105 we removed the last of the river pebbles, f254, revealing a surface of greenish yellow soil, f279. On the south this surface was bounded by a line of cut stones, f277. On the east this surface was bounded by another line of stones, f276. The stones did not abut in a SE corner. Immediately to the south of a11, we uncovered two additional lines of stones to the west of f265. We continued to excavate accumulation, f259, in anticipation of reaching companion stones to f265, which are expected to continue to the southeast. In k106 we continued to expose stones which are a part of the first escarpment, ^esc1. [T816JW.J]
-DYT817In k105 we removed the balance of accumulation, f280, from atop the pebble natural floor, f278. Pickman Su'ar noticed that there was an ashy accumulation, f282, to the southwest of the stones of ^esc1 under the natural floor, f278. In k106, we removed the baulk between k105 and k106 in two parts: first the volumetric material above the red "escarpment," then f268 itself. Further east we removed the layered escarpment, f241, from the west baulk to the exploratory cut to the east. [T817JW.J]
-DYT818Removed the remaining soil and stones from the afternoon excavations of T817. Removed the remaining portion of the red soil, f268 from the bottom of the north part of the east baulk of k106. Excavated the sherd layer, f242, a part of the layered second escarpment, ^esc2. Cleaned the natural floor, f278, atop the stones of the first escarpment, f265, then began to remove it to expose the stones and the ashy accumulation to the southwest, f282. In the afternoon session we finished removing f278 and f242. Then we cleaned thoroughly the numerous exposed stones of ^esc1, which stretch from the east end to almost the northern end of the unit. In the north sector, we removed the bricks of f245, the east end of a11, in order to determine if the stone first escarpment, ^esc1, rose to the north at that point to the level of the f266 "step." We found another large, high-founded flat stone at the same elevation to the south of f266, but not the rise in the first escarpment that we hypothesized. If ^esc1 does rise, it must occur further to the north. However, it is possible that the two stones of f255 are part of a stone second escarpment, installed after the first escarpment was covered in that region. [T818JW.J]
-DYT826In k105 we removed the pedestal of accumulation, f289, under the shaffatshaffat. We learned little new about the deposition process beneath the f3 Mittani revetment wall in the process. [T826JW.J]
-DYT827Removed the northeast corner of the high baulk in k100 to improve sight-lines down and to the north so that the first escarpment, ^esc1 could be seen in conjunction with the revetment wall, f189. Backfilled the previously excavated exploratory trench, f286, in k33. Straightened sections along the north baulk of k100 and the west baulk of k105. Finished drawing the southern half of the southwest section of k106. [T827JW.J]
-DYT901We are nearing the end of the First Study Period, having already finished the Second UGR period. Except for a brief time when we performed additional field work, the staff has worked in the house to prepare the first draft of the final UGR. It includes entering and checking all logs, checking relays and making plots, finishing templates, processing objects, drawing sections, and stratigraphic analysis. So far, there have been no significant problems. In the next study period we will cross-check entries and correct discrepancies. jW will prepare the discursive side for publication. [T901JW1.J]
-DY.riS721At the end of the day, excavation in five loci, k23, k24, k34, k44, and k54 has begun to clarify the stratigraphy associated with the occupation of this part of the [S721JW.J]
-DY.riS727Today, the unit archaeologists worked in the house rather than in the field. No workmen were present on site. We focused on drawing templates, entering data, processing objects, and stratigraphic analysis. There were several meetings in the house and in the field with gB, fAB, mKB and unit archaeologists to review progress to date and to revise the excavation strategy for the next period. [S727JW1.J]
-DY.riS904Today in the field we drew the east section of k14, w26. We recorded data for new features and described them. jW and lH met with gB and fAB to tentatively allocate features to the phases set forth in the Phase Sequence for Mittani Horizon, dated S902. [S904JW.J]
-DY.riT729High winds and blowing soil made outside work impossible today. [T729JW.J]
-EQS817A shafat to remove the dirt from baulk removal was installed along the north baulk of k34. [S817JW.J]
-EQS819For much of the day, the shafat was operating at less than full capacity because no trailer was available to carry away the dirt. Less efficient wheelbarrows were used instead. [S819JW.J]
-EQS821Moved the shafat to locus k32 to assist in removing the north and east baulks. [S821JW.J]
-EQT721All four pickmen complained that the trowels issued to them were ineffective for the work we were asking of them. Also, the bristles on the brushes are too worn to pick up the dirt. sE, tool co-ordinator, was notified. [T721JW.J]
-EQT723Upon inspection of the unit, we determined that a four-meter shafat would not be long enough to lift the excavated dirt to the surface. The six-meter unit was not ready to be installed. [T723JW.J]
-EQT723jW and fAB spoke about the sub-standard trowels. Some new ones will be issued. [T723JW.J]
-EQT725The long shafat was installed and began operating late in the day. It will ease the removal problem developing as we excavate far below the surface. After the shafat was installed we installed a safety fence around a previously excavated deep sounding to the south of k100. [T725JW.J]
-EQT726Distributed two new trowels to Ibrahim and Anwar. [T726JW.J]
-EQT816Shifted shafat from the baulk between k105 and k106 to a point about two meters to the west to facilitate removal of soil from the southeast corner of k105 where most of the heavy excavation was taking place. [T816JW.J]
-EQT818We suspended the use of the shafat because it was unstable on its perch when a workman sat on it to clear stones from the input tray. We then carried the rocky soil up to the surface using previously excavated "steps" and a ladder. [T818JW.J]
-GR.riT927The following problems are known to exist:
(1)The JD program does not process view, drawing, and plot logs entries for specific labels (i.e. g^wall1).

(2) Although they run as separate files, the JD program does not process the following types of J files in the batch mode:
(a) Best photo containing view numbers for specific labels (i.e.. J5 T915jW.-j)
(b) Strata Log (i.e. J5 T902jW.-j).
(c) Strata Rationale entries (i.e. J5 T903jW.j).

(3) Text entries do not process properly (i.e. J3 R824jW1.j-, J3 R824jW2.j, J3 R726jW.j-)

(4) When the "S" program output file is processed by the JD program, its output (strata and phase) for q-p is placed in the QI folder not the QP folder (i.e. J5 S-CUMUL.-J-).

(5) The JD program does not process nested specific labels.

(6) The JD program does not process assemblage files (i.e. J5 T405jW.j-).

(7) The JD program has a limit of 400 input files. J5 already has more than that.

(8) In her .J files mKB uses several pottery codes from a new list provided to her by gB (e.g. K81) that are not recognized by the current JD program. We have had to change the codes to existing ones (e.g. K91) to get the data into the UGR (i.e. J5 T914aC.-j).

(9) Text links between books does not work (e.g. J1f296 in a J5 entry).

(10) A link within text to a specific label does not work (e.g. ^wall1).

(11) When a view is open and one clicks on a thumbnail for other related views (photos), nothing is linked to it. The thumbnails are linked to a file in the unit book which does not exist. (The photos are in V22/G/LoRes, while the views are in J05/D/V.) [T927JW.J]

The staff met with gB, mKB, and fAB to develop a new stratigraphic sequence, J5A, based on the site-wide sequence, MZA, and the MZ21 sequence, JPC. The focus of this initial session was on the early periods (pre-Mittani) since the work of last season established a good sequence for the Mittani period and thereafter. After a field review tomorrow we will assign strata to features f201 to f240 and to review types of contact. [T804JW.J]

-SF.riS726mO departed the unit and Tell Mozan to prepare for graduate studies in Tunisia. His contributions are greatly appreciated. [S726JW.J]
-SGS709To accomplish these goals we will incorporate and build upon that portion of unit J1 that contains the double wall. First, we will clean and document the previously excavated portion of the revetment wall. Next, we will open two new loci, k23 and k24, north of the west face of the outer of the two lines of stone. There, at a depth of about 150cm below the surface we expect to be able to follow this face which runs roughly north northwest. The geophysical survey indicates the prescence of a structure to the west within the range of the new loci. If we find the turn we will follow it to the west with additional loci in that direction. In order to define the nature of the wall system as it turns north we will remove some isolated pillars of soil which partially cover it in the portion previously exposed as a part of the J1 excavation. If necessary to further explore the construction, we will open a second line of loci running north and located to the east of k23 and k24. In order to accomplish the publishing goal, we will station an experienced assistant in the house on a rotating basis to process objects and enter and process data and photographs as they are recorded in the field. [S709JW1.J]
-SGS725Based on the assumption that we need to excavate the staircase in the least destructive way possible, jW, the J5 archaeologists, gB, mKB, and fAB met on site to determine how. We decided to excavate locus k33 to understand what may be the southern boundary of the staircase. We will excavate the south half of locus k34, which has throughout, a hard, naturally compacted floor, f45. By doing so, we expect to find lower steps of the staircase. We will keep f45 as a stratigraphic reference because it in all likelihood is the transition layer between Mittani and Middle Assyrian phases. [S725JW2.J]
-SGS727We began excavating staircase f21 from top to bottom and from east to west. After locating all of the steps (3) in k24 (the third ended in the west baulk), we moved to k34 to begin searching along the east baulk for a continuation. We wanted to preserve the Middle Assyrian to Mittani transitional floor surface, f45, in the north half of the locus while excavating it and laminations, f63 in the south. mKB posed the question of what happens if the staircase, f21, does not contine through the baulk. If not, there would be a distinct possibility that we would dig through several strata and learn little. As a result, we decided to excavate the east baulk of k34, then follow the staircase down and to the west. As to the western loci, k34 and k44, we will stop in k44 and excavate k34 to see if stone installations f28 and f49 continue to the south through the baulk which separates these loci. The geosurvey plot shows that a large structure makes a turn to the east in that general area. Our working hypothesis is that stone installation f49 is the source of the trace on the plot and that it turns west in k34. In k23, when the k22 north baulk removal is complete, we will excavate down to find the northern extension of revetment wall, f3, which penetrates the baulk from the south. [S727JW1.J]
-SGS802gB, fAB and jW met on site to discuss the apparent conflict between the layers of Middle Assyrian pottery found in this locus, (and in k23, and in k44) and the strong Mittani identity with nearby features such as the houses in A19 and A20. gB suggested that it would be useful to our overall understanding of unit J05 to first remove the east baulks of k34 and k44 to evaluate the relalationship between the rows of stones in k44 and k43 and the staircase, f21, to the east. However, we must still remove, at a later date, the north baulk of k43 to understand the relationships among the stone structures in k43 and k44. [S802JW.J]
-SGS806gB and fAB reviewed with jW and lH the need to remove the south parts of the remaining baulks in k21, k22, k11, and k12 to improve sightlines from the new observation platform being built to the south of the unit. The surveyor, bKP will create relays for the outline of material to be excavated, k100. The entire crew from J1 will report tomorrow to begin work. J5 crews will continue to remove the baulks in k43 and k33 and to excavate k14. [S806JW.J]
-SGS810In several meetings over the last two days, gB, fAB, jW, and the J5 staff have discussed excavation plans for the last two-week period. There are several conflicting strategies that needed to be resolved. The highest priority will be to excavate k33 down to the glacis, f74, and its associated wall systems, including f41, by carefully removing the horizontally layered and laminated accumulations above it. Loci k13 and k14 have yielded a number of interesting stone installations and bricky residues. However, we have not been able to fit them together with stonework in loci k22, k23, and k24. To clarify this area of "four corners," we had scheduled removing the baulk that extends from k43 on the west to k13 on the east starting on Wednesday, S813. In today's discussions, we decided that it would be more effective and illustrative to remove the shorter N-S baulks between k24, and k14 and k23 and k13 respectively after they are drawn and photographed. This work can be accomplished by the crews who are already excavating in k13 and k4 without disturbing the work on the wall systems in k33. As the E-W baulk has been documented, we can remove it at anytime resources are available. As to work in the soutern part of the unit, we need to excavate k32 to trace the glacis we have found in k22 to the west. We also need to finish excavating k100. We do not expect to find significant architecture or artifacts in either k32 or k100. We believe that there are adequate resources and enough time to complete this work. In summation, considering the progress made to date, we can execute the plan if our assumptions are correct. [S810JW.J]
-SGS813On S814, we will finish excavating accumulation, f135, in locus k33, then clean and photograph it. Then we will begin removing floor accumulation, f137, from the southeast corner, then west and north. We expect to find the northern extension of wall, f41, and the follow the escarpment, f74, seen in the northwest corner of k22. In locus k24, we will clean it well, along with k14, k34 and k44, for a major photograph. In locus k13, we will remove the south safety baulk to trace featues found in the north part of the locus. For locus k22, we will follow the escarpment, f74, into the southwest corner. [S813JW.J]
-SGS814On S816 we will continue to excavate the accumulations in k32 with two large picks. In k33, we will contine to excavate, with a small pick, floor accumulation, f137, which covers escarpment, f74. In k22, we will excavate, with a small pick, the five accumulations (f86, f87, f88, f89, and f90) seen in section to the east of revetment wall, f3. In k13 and k14, we will clean, photograph, and measure several features not yet documented. [S814JW.J]
-SGS816In a meeting between gB, fAB, and jW it was decided to focus the work in the last days on presentation of what has already been found rather than additional exploration. Therefore, we will assign two pickmen to excavate k100 and two pickmen to excavate k32 so that the sightlines to major features such as the revement walls f3 and f41, the escarpment, f74, the staircase, f21, and the stone installations in k43 and k44 can be seen from the new viewing platform being constructed south of k32. As soon as possible, two pickmen will follow the escarpment east to see if it links with the one in unit J1. After the north sections of k13, k23, k33, and k43 are drawn we will remove the long north baulk that links them. [S816JW.J]
-SGS817We will draw and photgraph the north and east baulks before removing them. [S817JW.J]
-SGS821In a meeting with jW and dL, gB suggested that the only way we might possibly determine whether wall f3 and its associated pavement was built during Phase 6 and whether wall 41 was built in Phase 1 was to sink a 50cm square probe behind each and then examine the ceramics. (There is a recognizable change in the stones used to construct f3 to the east and to the west so it will be possible to chose an appropriate location even though we will not be able to trace f41. [S821JW.J]
-SGS825gB and jW met to discuss the strategy to complete the assigned work in the last two field days, which begin tomorrow. First we will improve the sightline from the new panorama by expanding the trianular cut, f167, in k32 by an additional meter. Ali, Ramadan, Mizer and the crew from A20 will accomplish this task. Second, we will continue to excavate loci k101, k102, and k103 to obtain additional ceramic material that will help us to date when revetment wall, f3 and staricase, f21, were built. Abd'l Rahman will do this. Third, we will complete the excavation of the sloping section, f159, east to the boundary of J1. Masood and Majid will accomplish this task. Fourth, we will follow the escarpment, f167, to the west from the western border of J1. Huessein will do this. Fifth, we will cut a ramp to prepare a staircase that will lead visitors from J1 upward into J5. Amer and Kamiran will accomplish this task. [S825JW.J]
-SGS826As tomorrow is the last day of excavation, the following projects must be completed. First, mKB must analyze today's ceramic finds from k101, k102, and k103 to assure that we have sufficent data from them to determe the phase when parts of revetment wall, f3, and staircase, f21 were built. Then, we will cover and backfill these loci. Second, we must complete excavating the access stairway from J1 to J5 along the south face of revetment wall, f3. Third, we must complete the removal of volumetric material, f159, in k100 to enhance the sightline from the panorama into J1. Fourth we must complete excavation of volumetric material, f167, in k32 to enhance the sightline from the panorama into k22 so that wall, f41, can be seen. Fifth, we will continue to explore for the escarpment that should continue west from excavation unit J1 into J5 along the bottom stones which form the south face of revetment wall, f3. [S826JW.J]
-SGS913Over the next two days we will complete the types of contact and Harris matrices in preparation for assigning each feature to a stratum and phase. These assignments must also be justified. After this work we must also review the objects to assure that they have been measured, photographed, and perhaps drawn. [S913JW2.J]
-SGT719After organizing the teams we will spend much of the time before breakfast cleaning the entire J5 area that was excavated last season. Then, we will remove the winter accumulation from both loci and clean the exposed surface thoroughly to determine the nature of the accumulation below. After that we will begin excavating those accumulations in earnest. [T719JW.J]
-SGT721Director gB, fAB, jW, sE, eA, and jN met to review excavation progress and strategy. A large cut stone, f205, adjacent to wall, f41, and under escarpment, f74, had just been exposed. There were an adequate number of sherds for mKB to identify as coming from the Mittani period. gB used the opportunity to stress the need to proceed carefully and be evermindful of the research question being addressed. The strategy developed earlier in the day was seen to be appropriate. [T721JW.J]
-SGT721Excavation director fAB met with jW, sE, eA, and jN on site to discuss strategy for the next several days. Originally, we planned only one locus for the excavations in J5 this season, and it was designated k104. However, due to its length, fAB suggested that we split it into two parts - k105 to the north and west and k106 to the south and east. A baulk (east baulk of k105) would separate the two. A north baulk would be also maintained in k105. The shafat for dirt removal will sit on the new east baulk of k105. The two easternmost north projections (sawteeth) of k100 should be removed to facilitate excavations along the south face of the revetment wall. These excavations will proceed from east to west, starting near unit J1 where we have already exposed a baqaya escarpment, f184, which is covered by what we called a floor accumulation, f169. We will use small picks throughout the unit from now on as the subtle differences between accumulations and the escarpments we are looking for can be easily obscured by the use of heavier tools. We will draw the east face of a N-S oriented baulk on the eastern side of k105. This will be removed as a part of the search for the escarpment, but provides a good section reference point. [T721JW.J]
-SGT723An on-site meeting was held with gB, fAB, jW, sE, eA and jN to deal with the problem of how to excavate in the vicinity of stair, f205, so as to preserve and study the stratigraphic relationships between the early wall, f41; stair, f205, floor accumulation, f74, and late wall, f3. One problem is the restricted working space in the north part of locus k105. To solve this problem we will remove the late buttresses, f155 and f161, and the floating stone, f207. Also we will cut back the NE face of locus k32. Finally we will remove the stones of f200, which appear to block the water channel, f205 and f202. fAB pointed out that as seen in the NE section of k32, a distinct ash layer (not yet designated a feature) separates the laminar accumulations above from the dense packed soil of f74 below. As we cut back the section of k32, we will carefully trace this layer for clues as to the shape of the temple mound in this area. For the moment we will not expose more of the stair steps, until we know more about the likely shape of the temple mound at the time they were built. However, we do know that the ceramics above the highest step and the ceramics above the lower steps northeast of the revetment wall, f3, are both from the Mittani period. [T723JW.J]
-SGT726During the staff progress review on T724, jW noticed that stair, f21, was built on the line of what we believe is the Third Millennium revetment wall, f41. The stones of the bottom step of f21 appear to be laid atop f41. However, the Mittani revetment wall extension, f3, follows a different course and its north end stops short of the platform to the east of the top step of f21. This raises the possibility that stair, f21, was built in the Third Millennium. One way to test this hypothesis is to follow the top step of stair, f205, to the north to see if it links to staircase, f21. Then we could excavate to the west of the link to collect sherds associated with its construction. Another way is to excavate along the north edge of f21 to collect sherds associated with its construction. The problem with either approach is that it destroys the monument that we want to preserve. gB encouraged the J5 staff to develop other alternatives. [T726JW.J]
-SGT726Held an on-site meeting with gB, fAB, jW, sE, eA, jN and the staff of J1 (lC, mM, aA) to discuss the impact of J1's discovery of a floor surface directly adjacent to the portion of stone installation, f188, that is in J1. The surface, J1f313, contains many pebbles and sherds pressed horizontally. It was agreed that we should excavate f204 in k100 down to the level of this surface, then try and follow the sherd floor to the west. Since the escarpment that we are looking for appears to overlay part of the stones of f188, it will help locate the escarpment and clarify the stratigraphy. There are two large stones just below the extant surface of f204 that may be associated with similar stones at the same elevation located just to the east in J1. [T726JW.J]
-SGT727On T728 we have to resolve two issues. The easy one is how to excavate the ashy soil, f214, and the hard lens, f213, which it surrounds. As the soft ash was most likely deposited after the hard lens, we will remove it first, down to the level of floor accumulation, f74 which it covers. The more difficult issue is in k100. We removed accumulation, f204 and, at the eastern edge of the locus, found the continuation of the J1f313 floor under f204. However, about one meter to the west of the J1 and J5 boundary we found plastic, presumably marking the bottom of backfill from a previous season's excavation. In the vicinity of the westernmost excavated stone of installation, f184, there is a hard, dense soil layer. This may be silt acted upon by water just atop the plastic. Or, it could be an accumlation from the time that f184 was in use. To resolve the issue, we must dig a narrow, N-S strip of the soil layer to see if there is plastic underneath. [T727JW.J]
-SGT727We will excavate laminar soil, f209, in k105, down to the ash layer, then follow it carefully, as it seals the soil layer covering the steps (possibly Third Millenium) upon which the late Mitanni revetment wall, f3 was built. We will excavate f204 in k100 down to the floor J1f313 just to the east. [T727JW.J]
-SGT727gB and fAB met with the unit staff to discuss the stratigraphic relationship among the monumental staircase, f21; early revetment wall, f41, the stairs which abut that wall, f205, (including their possible continuation to the north); and the area immediately west of these components. The first step in resolving these issues is to follow the top step of f205 to the north to see its relationship with f21 and f41. [T727JW.J]
-SGT728The unit staff met with fAB and gB to review the strategy for gathering evidence that would help identify when the components of the monumental western staircase, f21; early revetment wall, f41; stairway, f205; and late revetment wall, f3 were built. The basic strategy is to follow the top step of f205 north. We expect it to intercept the staircase, f21. We will then clear the accumulation from an exploratory trench to the west of wall, f41, down to the level of the top step to stairs, f205, and extend it north to the middle of f21. Then, one will be able to see the wall and stair system as it existed at its construction as well as its later phases of use. [T728JW.J]
-SGT728The unit staff met with fAB to discuss the strategy for excavating a complex intersection of soil features along the northwest baulk of k104. We wanted to know their relationship since all covered an important feature, the f74 floor which covers the f205 stairs and which abuts the early revetment wall, f41. We had a choice of excavating the hard one first, the soft one first, or cutting an exploratory trench perpendicular to the baulk. Since time was limited and the features themselves were not individually important, we decided to excavate the smaller feature of harder soil first. [T728JW.J]
-SGT730After drawing the section of the north baulk of k105 we plan to excavate north to the bottom steps of the monumental staircase, f21. First we will follow floor accumulation, f74 (here an exposed strip about 150 cm wide) to the north. It covers not only the steps of stairs, f205, but also what appears to be a stone pavement north of the top step. Adjacent to the west we will first excavate accumulation f218 which covers f74, then excavate f74 itself to expose more of the material (expected to be stone pavement) to the west of wall f41 as it continues north to f21. In k106 the gigantic stone, f216, was broken up by sledge. After removing it we will excavate floor f213, then, the accumulation below and to the south of stone installation, f188. [T730JW.J]
-SGT801The staff met with fAB to discuss strategy for the next several days. The proximity of the high north baulk of k100 makes it impractical to excavate in k106 the limited area south of the southernmost row of the stones of stone installation, f225. The possibility of contamination by late material dictates that the second escarpment be fully exposed and the surrounding Mittani gully wash soil be removed before excavating to the west the floor accumulation, f226, covering f225. Since the shafat is even farther to the west, contamination of f226 should be minimized. As to excavating in k105 and k33 to its north, we will follow the top stone of stairs, f205 to the north until it intersects with the bottom steps of staircase, f21. We will also excavate a parallel strip immediately to the west to this level. [T801JW.J]
-SGT801The staff met with gB and fAB to discuss the longer-term strategy for the last two weeks of excavation. We need to determine the relationship between the monumental stairway, f21, and wall, f41, which we believe to be older. gB suggested excavating in k33 farther north to the middle of the third stone from the south. Then we would excavate below the first stone from the south, to see exactly how it interfaces with f41, on which the east end of the first row of the steps of f21 appear to rest. We will prop up the stone of f21 below which we excavate with cement blocks to prevent collapse. fAB suggested that we excavate a test trench on the east side of wall, f41, to determine when it was built. This would require the removal of some of the stones of f99, many of which seem to be displaced from their original position. Finally, gB and fAB suggested the possibility of removing a major portion of the southeastern part of k100, under which is what we believe to be major components (f184, f188, f225) of the first and second escarpments to revetment wall, f189. A pickman and a few extra removal crew as well as an additional shafat would be added to the crew and equipment. Three pickmen would be devoted to the k100 project while two would continue to work in k105, k33, and k106. [T801JW.J]
-SGT802Comparing this result with that obtained in J1, we are confident we are at the top of the same escarpment which rises in elevation as one moves from west to east. In k33 we have positively identified an early floor, f230, that goes with wall k41 and extends to the west from the northern part that we see. (It is possible that f41 extends even farther north beyond the staircase, f21, but we will not be able to determine that this season.) We will trace this floor surface north to the middle step of f21 and west to the west baulk of k33. If time permits, we should also trace the floor farther west to determine its relationship with brick wall, f196, whose top was exposed at the end of MZ21. Finally, we need to determing the relationship between the staircase, f21, and wall, f41, which appears to run beneath it. A small block of soil will be removed from accumlation, f128, to the east, undercutting bottom stones of f21 at a gap between them. If we encounter the stones of f41, then we know that f21 rests on f41 and is therefore later. How much later can not be determined. [T802JW.J]
-SGT802In several meetings among gB, fAB, and the unit staff, several pending issues were resolved. First, we decided to begin the excavation of the high bulks to the south by removing the part of k100 to the east of what was formerly J1k7. Then, if time permits, we will remove the part k100 that was to the north of J1k7. This will allow us to take maximum advatage of the typology of J1k7, which was excavated in three steps, descending from south to north. Since the bottom step is about at the elevation of the second escarpment, f184, we will get much more exposure and working room to trace the escarpment and underlying stone work, f225 and f188, south and west. With respect to tracing the second escarpment from J1 to the west, we have been hindered by the fact that it is covered by a thin crust, f236, which matches the color of accumulations nearby. jW decided to cut a thin section (5cm) running N-S across the escarpment, then follow it east and west. At the bottom, the soil was considerably more red, and the pottery was exclusively from ED III or before. [T802JW.J]
-SGT803As we excavate the portion of k100 to the east of J1k7, we will extend the "steps down" to the east to reduce the amount of excavation required this season and provide a sufficient sight line to the northeast from the viewing platform. In k33, we will clear enough accumulation to follow floor surface, f230, to the north and west. There will be no excavations in k105 or k106 today. [T803JW.J]
-SGT805In several meetings among gB, fAB and the staffs of J1 and J5 we decided to excavate the accumulation, f226, which covered f225, further westward. If f225 continues to the west, then we would surmise that stone installation, f188, also does. (We expect it to be hidden by the second escarpment, which we will not excavate.) gB believes that, although lower in elevation, f226 was deposited after f241, perhaps as a result of erosion effects of water scouring out higher levels during the Mittani period. Therefore we will excavate f226 before 241. In k33 we will follow floor, f230, to its maxmimum extents to the north and west. We will also remove a small section of floor, f70, to match the deeper excavation of f230. In k100, we continue to excavate the high baulks east and north of J1k7, matching the steps down to the north previously excavated. In k106 we will continue to excavate to find the western extent of the second escarpment. In k105, we will shift attention back to excavating the stairs, f205 to the south. To facilitate this, we will remove the stones of k200. [T805JW.J]
-SGT810As a result of several meetings throughout the day among gB, fAB, mKB, and jW the strategy over the last week was altered to assure that we could meet the major goal of the excavation; namely to clarify the nature of the Late Chalcolithic mound upon which the Early Dynastic revetment wall, f189, and accompanying structures were built. As a result of the discovery of the stone first escarpment (f188 and f225) and the clarification of the nature of the layered second escarpment above it (f184, f241, and f242) in locus k106, we can now follow the first escarpment west to the west section of k106. We will carefully remove the Mittani accumulations above and abutting the second escarpment (f243 and f252) then excavate as much of this Early Dynastic layered escarpment, ^esc2, as necessary to expose the stones of the first escarpment, ^esc1. The situation farther to the west and north in locus k105 is more problematical. Here there are a multitude of accumulations, floors, and structures above the Third Millennium levels. The key to our understanding of the shape of the Late Chalcolithic mound in this locus is to fully expose a portion of the southwest face of wall, f41, which we hypothesize was built in the Third Millennium atop the Late Chalcolithic mound as an adjunct or continuation of the revetment wall. Hopefully, we can date f41 and expose the first escarpment, esc1, which we expect rests directly on the LC mound based on the findings in J1. We will need all our resources to accomplish this and we will have to work with large picks when we are removing accumulations and structures we understand and have documented. To accomplish this we will cease excavations in k100. We will also closely monitor the ceramics to detect the transitions between constuction phases. gB suggested that when we use the big pick to excavate a feature, we note this under the procedures code. He also suggested that we discuss our two strategic options for excavating in k106. [T810JW.J]
-SGT811In k106, first we will verify that we have removed all of the Mittani accumlations atop of, and to the south of, the layered escarpment, ^esc2, in locus k106. When we are certain that this has been accomplished, we will begin to excavate the southern part of the escarpment, f241, following it to the west to expose the southern lines stones of ^esc1, f225. We expect that they will continue to the western end of the revetment wall, f189, which they protect. If we need to clarify the situation at the western edge of f189, we can excavate as much of the remaining part of ^esc2 as necessary, perhaps exposing all of ^esc1 in the process. We will preserve about one meter of ^esc2 in the east near J1 to illustrate its layered construction, and construction directly atop the stone escarpment, ^esc1.
In k105, we will continue to clarify the relationship between the pebble pavement, f254 and bricks, f255, to the south. Together, they seem to form a floor and its retaining wall, inhibiting erosion to the south. In the process, we will remove sloping surface, f251 which covers part of f255. Then we expect to see a link between brick segments f255 and f245 to the west. Further to the south we will continue to remove accumlations in front of the late Mittani period revetment wall, f3, in the hope of establishing a link between stone wall, f41 and the revetment wall, f189. [T811JW.J]
-SGT812On T813, we will concentrate our resources near the baulk which separates k105 from k106. In k105, we will excavate accumlation, f259, just south of brick wall, a11. It is probable that we are near the bottom of stone wall, f41. If so, we may be able to date the approximate time of its construction by analyzing the sherds from f259, which abuts f41. Just to the south, we will continue to excavate accumlation, f258, which is a part of the east baulk of k106 and extents north and west from it to accumlation, f259. Thus, we will fully expose the installation of large cut stone blocks, f261, and can then determine the form and function of them. At the northeast corner of wall, a11, there is a small patch of the pebble pavement, f254, which when excavated, will tell us whether or not there is a fifth "step" of the stone structure, f205. We will also revmove the rest of the f254 pebbles north of the a11 brick wall.
In k106, we will concentrate all of our resources toward excavating westward the 100cm wide strip of soil features, f252 and f242, which either abut or are a part of ^esc2. When we reach the west baulk of k106, we will turn to the north and excavate along the baulk to the revetment wall, f189. Since the stones of ^esc1 are retreating toward f189, it may mean that we are nearing the west end of f189. If ^esc1 is not found, it means that the wall end is farther to the east. If so, we will excavate ^esc2 to the east until the western end is found. [T812JW.J]
-SGT815In the northern sector of k105 we will continue to excavate the pebbles of fill, f254, hoping to locate the surface upon which they rest. In the southeastern sector, we will continue to remove f271, excavating to the level of flat stones, f265 to the north, hoping to follow them east to the expected stones of ^esc1, through the baulk separating k105 and k106.In k106, we will excavate a two-meter wide strip along the face of the west baulk of the locus, removing the reddish mass of soil, f268. [T815JW.J]
-SGT816fAB, gB, and the J5 staff met several times during the day to discuss strategy for the next two days, when excavation will cease. In k106, we decided to finish exposing the stones of the first escarpment, ^esc1, to the baulk separating k106 from k105. After photographing the stones against the baulk to document the extent of the red material, f268 which covers them, we will excavate the baulk down to the level of ^esc1. The afternoon work crew may assist us by removing the soil from the excavated baulk. To more fully expose the extent of ^esc1 to the east, we will remove the layered escarpment, ^esc2, from the small exploratory cut in the east to its western end. In k105 we will excavate the southeastern sector down to the level of the stones of f265, following them to the southeast, hopefully to their juncture with the stones of ^esc1 in k106. [T816JW.J]
-SGT817For the last day's excavation we will clean and photograph the natural floor surface, f278, then we will remove it to expose the stones of the stone escarpment, ^esc1. In k106 we will excavate the sherd layer, f242, to fully expose the stones of ^esc1. When most of the soil is removed, we will remove the shafat and trim the high dirt foundations of the Mittani revetment wall, f3. [T817JW.J]
-SGT818In a meeting with the unit staff, gB and fAB discussed the possibility of removing the east half ,f245, of wall, a11, to see if there is a connection between the stones of the first escarpment, f265, and the "bottom step" of the f205 staircase, f266. This step has a different orientation and composition and seems to be associated with the stones of installation, f276. Initially, we will make a one-meter probe parallel to wall, f41, to resolve this issue, so that we can still finish today. Similar to yesterday, we will need an eight-man afternoon crew to finish the work and clean properly. [T818JW.J]
-SGT824Two additional tasks were added to the four specific investigations (f265, f284, f287, f286) proposed by gB, fAB and the unit staff. First, we need to remove stone, f275, upon which the shafat sits. then excavate the accumulation below, f289.
Second, we need to remove a small baulk on the west end of the north face of k100 to improve the sightlines into the excavation so that ^esc1 can be safely viewed from above. [T824JW.J]
-SG.rdS805Removing the east baulks of k43 and k33 were scheduled as high priority tasks for today. However, due to delays associated with photography and baulk drawing, we moved all three crews to the new loci k13 and k14 and excavated there for the day. Tomorrow we will excavate each baulk and k14 with one crew each. Excavation of k13 will be temporarily suspended until the baulks are fully removed. [S805JW1.J]
-SG.riS730This morning, gB, fAB, jW and the unit archaeologists met on site to discuss how best to define and understand the relationship between the staircase, f21, the revetment wall, f3, and the dressed stones, f41, to the southwest of f3. We decided to finish excavating the redefined north section of k22, down to the level where excations in previous seasons were halted. Then, after we draw and photograph the baulk, we will excavate by following the features seen in section to the north. As to the staircase, we will excavate k34 to the level where soil feature, f70, meets the top of the bottom step of staircase, f12. We will score and photograph the combined south baulks of k34 and k24 so that we can see where the various accumulations and floor surfaces abut or cover the staircase. As to the baulk separating k34 and k44, we will score and draw and photograph it as the west baulk of k34, then remove it to develop a clear sightline to the Middle Assyrian structures, f28 and f49 to the west. In k43, we will contine to excavate with the prospects of finding the source of the bright lines on the geomagnetic survey done several years ago. It is most likely that they are from stone installation, f49. We will also continue, as resources permit to excavate locus k33. We expect that architecture in it will be a key in understanding the relationships among stones f41, its glacis, f74, and the staircase, f21. [S730JW.J]
-SG.riS804gB, fAB, and jW met with the J5 staff to discuss an excavation strategy for the next week in light of the extensive stone work found in k23 and k24. Excavation in k33 has indicated that it is free of structures to a depth of 170cm from the surface. Identical conditions were found in k34. The last feature in both was a dense, highly compacted, clean accumulation composed of fine-grained silt. We are reluctant to continue excavating here until we understand better the relationship between the stonework (f3, f41, f99) and glacis (f74) of k22 and k23 and the stone staircase (f21) found in k24. The east baulk of k33 should reveal the connection and it will be removed after the baulks are drawn and photographed and the west baulks of k23 and k22 are photographed. The transition from the clean, flat surface in k33 to the stonework in k34 is similar to that now seen in k34 an k44. We will remove the east baulk of k44 (after drawing and photographing its reverse, the west baulk of k34) to better interpret the stratigraphy. An examination of the extensive stonework (f3, f4, f5) found in k22, k21, k12, and k11 (excavated in previous seasons as a part of J1) shows that it may be a result of late (Mittani) modifications to earlier (Akkadian or Early Dynastic structures. Several lines of this stonework extend north to the east of k23 and k24. In addition, the line of stones, f14, in k24, which border the staircase, f21, extend to the east. To explore these relationships, if any, we will excavate loci k3, k4, k13, and k14. [S805JW1.J]
-SUS830A probe directly to the east of a stone of the top step yielded ceramics securely dated to Phase 6 (Mittani). 2) The situation along the southern edge of the staricase was not as clear. This ecge had been damaged and may have been subjected to rebuilding at the end of the Mittani occupation. In this area we did find the top of another wall of dressed stones rising from the southeast to the northwest which was under the northern extension of the revetment wall. It was abutted by an escarpment which fell from the northeast to the soughwest. At this point the excarpment was 2.2 meters higher than the latest one in J1, 20 meters to the east. Although we have yet to positively link the two escarpments, the evidence strongly suggests tht the western end of the plaza as defined by the revetment wall is higher than the eastern end. This means that the wall was not founded as deeply here. 3) We did not have time to fully explore the apparent phenomenon of two separate revetment walls turning north at the northwest corner. There are several large blocks of of late accumulation which cover much of this area. A probe directly to the north of each wall section showed that the western section yielded ceramics securely dated to Phase 6. The eastern probe yielded ceramics dated to much earlier phases. This suggests that the western section was a late additon to an earlier revetment wall that included the lower wall of well-dressed stones and the excarpment. 3) The pillars of accumulation also prevented us from fully investigating the glacis of the temple mound. We did make a small probe along the east side of the northern part of the revetment wall, stopping when we reached baqaya-like material at the base of the lowest stone. [S831JW.J]
-SUS830The results for unit J5 were as follows: 1) excavtion at the northern limits of the revetment wall revealed a monumental, unfounded staircase made of large, dressed, limestone blocks. The staircase was bordered on the north by large, uncut, limestone boulders. It ran E-W, rising to the east in five steps to a platform roughly defined by flat stones and, in some places, a pavement made of reddish, bricky material. [S831JW.J]
-SUS830There is also a line of baqaya-like material which can be seen in section of a baulk that runs perpendicular to the face of the east section of the revetment wall. This indiates that the glacis in this part of the temple mound is similar to that which was found in the previous excavations in J3. 4) Approximately one week of the six allotted was spent on presentation. A new observation platform was built and sightlines were opened from it by trimming and removing baulks and protrusions. It is now possible to see along the length of the revetment wall from the west staircase, east though the plaza excavation, to the eastern staircase and apron. 5) As of the end of the excavation season we have entered and run most of the systematic portion of the J5 UGR. Major things yet to be completed are the graphics and stratigraphic analysis, assignments, and rationale. [S831JW.J]
-SUS830Time and resources were not available bo open excavation unit A21; however, the following questions were to be investigated by J5: 1) The first question was to explain the presence of two revetment walls at the point where the wall turned from an E-W orientation to a N-S one. 2) The second question was to brobe the height of the wall in relation to the plaza. The mehtodology was to follow the southern an western faces of the revetment wall. Excavation to the north would expose the terminus. Excavations along the faces would expose the height of various segments. Excavations to the north of the south face would tell us more about the glacis associated with this part of the revetment wall. 3) We needed to be aware of the presentation aspects of the temple complex so that visitors could see the monumental architecture from the same perspective as the ancients. 5) All units were to write and process the data portions of the Urkesh Global Record during the excavation season. [S831JW.J]
-SUT719The starting numbers for season MZ22 (2009-T) for various components of the UGR are: feature 201; q-lot 285; item 33; view 145; plot 8; aggregate 8; composite 2; relay 1171; drawing 22 and 122; sketch 46; and off-grid loci 104. [T719JW.J]
-SUT801jW does not believe that in two weeks we can remove the amount of k100 required to significantly excavate south and west of the parts of f188 and f225 we have already exposed. Granted the accumulations are not expected to yield culturally significant material, but the high baulk that would remain to the south in the west part of k106 would still impede progress to understanding the stratigraphy in the region immediately south of the south face of revetment wall, f189. jW believes that if we are to remove parts of k100 this season, we should begin to excavate more of k100 in preparation for significant excavations in that part of k106 next season. That way, if time runs out before we finish in MZ22, we can easily complete the work in the first week of MZ23. This approach has the added advantage of providing better sight lines from the observation platform over the winter to the revetment wall, the glacis, and into J1. [T801JW.J]
-SUT804Throughout season 21 and into season 22 we have observed the deleterious effects of running water on the surfaces immediately outside of the revetmment wall systems. The erosion problem has occasioned the construction of stone structures to channel water and to stabilize horizontal surfaces. From the late Mittani period to at least the Early Dynastic II period we have observed the erosion effects and what remains of the stabilization structures. One of the goals of the season was to determine the shape of the temple mound in the Late Chalcolithic period. The constant erosion problem is strong circumstantial evidence that the Early Dynastic revetment wall system was built on earlier period remains which included a rise to the north and west. [T804JW.J]
-SU.rdT929gB, fAB, pC, jG, rE, and jW met at the site to discuss several stratigraphic issues in J1 and J5 which have arisen during the study periods and in the preparation of the analytical sections of the UGR. The results with respect to J1 will be discussed in that book. The results for the affected J5 features will be discussed in the specific labels which incorporate them. [T929JW.J]
-SU.riS830Before the start of the excavation season, we had hoped to explore two aspects of the northwestern section of the temple complex. First, we wanted to investigate what the geophysical survey indicated was the northern limit of the revetment wall. This would be accomplished as excavation unit J5. Second we wanted to investigate what the survey indicated might be a substantial building at the northwestern edge of the plaza. This would be accomplished as excavation unit A21. [S831JW.J]
-SU.riS913The focus of the first two weeks of the study period, S831 to S911, has been to complete feature descriptions, complete and edit the feature log, measure coordinates of features that were not clearly understood at the time of excavation, group feaures for specific labels, finish final photographs, prepare templates, and make preliminary assessments of strata and phases represented in this unit. We have also reviewed template and plot entries that will appear in the global record, along the way consolidating files that appear in several places in the computer systems we are using. [S913JW2.J]

-SYT721Surveyor Adib installed new markers along the east end of the north face of k100. fAB, gB, and jW discussed putting markers on the south side of the revetment wall to measure objects close to k100. fAB authorized the use of dirt-filled chawals into which is inserted a wooden stake. [T721JW.J]
-SYT726dM took a photo of a corner stake to show the advantage of the two-prong design. The soil surrounding the front prong had been excavated but the stake was still held securely in place by the back prong. [T726JW.J]
-SYT811We removed the following markers from J5 because we excavated the features in which they were installed: m6112, m6113, m6114, m6137, and m6175. [T811JW.J]
-SYT815Since the production of surveyed points has been delayed this season, the surveyor measured, with the level, the elevation of a number of key features in the unit, including parts of wall, f41; revetment wall, f189; and escarpments ^esc1 and ^esc2. [T815JW.J]
-SYT824On T823, aAJ took 17 relays and 24 elevations on various features and loci. [T824JW.J]

It is also possible that this wall system is the structure reveiled on the geophysical survey conducted in previous seasons. Its purpose seems to be to delimit the western boundary of the sacral space which includes the BA temple mound and the monumental staircase, f21. [T406JW.J]

The system is the last attempt to control the water flow from north to south past the west face of revetment wall, f41. [T901JW.J]

A0012B11T901A complex stepped stone structure high and square in the north and stepped down to the south. It abuts the northern extension of the EDIII revetment wall, f41, and appears to be constructed on accumulations preliminarily dated to the Early Dynastic III period by mKB. Its purpose appears to provice access to the top of the pre-EDIII revetment wall from accumulations covering its escarpment. It also served to deflect the north to south flow of flood water away from the revetment wall system. [T901JW.J]

A0013B11T901A collection of twelve basalt grindstones (pestals) found in adjacent accumlations (f23 and f30) surrounding a late Mittani period stone structure, ^bin1. Neither debitage nor mortars were found in the vicinity. This suggests that they were not manufactured or used in processing there. It is possible that the bin was a distribution point. [T901JW.J]

F0003C03S802As we exposed the top and west face of the revetment wall, f3 in the north baulk of k22 and into the southwestern quarter of k23, we noticed that the stones here are more organized and more carefully dressed than those directly to the south (which were excavated in previous seasons as a part of J1). To the south, the top stones are large boulders, laid atop a mud mortar base. As the wall approaches the stones of f37, two characteristics emerge: 1. There is a spur of well-dressed stones which emerge from the base of f3; 2. The stones of f3 themselves become better dressed and more carefully laid. As we excavate more extensively in k22 and k23, the situation and meaning should clarify. [S802JW.J]

F0021A35S725v29 [S725JW1.J]
F0021B11S729This feature, originally identified as a stone installation in k24 and now more appropriately called a staircase in both k24 and k34, descends in at least 6 steps from west to east, towards the palace. At least three accumulations abut it from top to bottom; Midddle Assyrian floor accumulation, f42; Mittani natural floor, f45, and Mittani laminations, f63. When we exposed the top of the last step at elevation 9090 (same elevation as the top stones in the revetment wall, f3, to the southeast), we found that it was abutted by a dense, clean, highly compacted accumulation, f72. Furthermore the stones of the northern border, turned south at this step. A probe with a sheesh to the west of the sixth step, through f72, did not strike any additional step stones. [S729JW.J]
F0021B11S802We sank a sheesh between the stones of the bottom step of staircase, f21. It hit a stone below. As similar actions to the east of the lowest stone did not hit stones below, the lowest step either marks: 1. the top of a wall or 2. A large transitional step between building phases (similar to the large bottom step of the staircase in J2, which marks a transition between Akkadian and Early Dynastic construction. [S802JW.J]
F0021C02S729mKB, fAB, and jW met on site to discuss the short term strategy to deal with this finding. We decided to photograph the situation as it exists, then excavate floor f45 and laminations, f63 in the north half of k34 to the level of the sixth step of f12 and the top of f72. When this is done, we will meet on S730 to revise our overall strategy. [S729JW.J]
F0021C03S725After locus k24 was excavated to the level of the soil, f52, which surrounded stone installations f14 and f21, we saw better the relationship between them. It seemed as if the line of irregularly cut stones which formed f14 was a northern border of part of a more substantial structure formed of dressed large stones, f21. When we probed to the west of the line of stones which formed f21 with a sheesh, we found a second line of stones about 20cm below it. After removing the accumulation atop this row, we probed and found a third row about 20cm below the second. This row was against the east side of the east baulk of k34. From this evidence we hypothesize that f21 is a staircase, descending to the west, of unknown length and depth. [S725JW2.J]

F0041A30WZ16Wall of dressed stones forming a Ninevite V revetment wall. [WZ16JW.J]
F0041B11S730Now that the north baulk of k22 has been cleaned and straightened, it is apparent that the well-dressed stones of this feature are aligned in a row extending from a point on revetment wall, f3, northwest toward the general direction of the staircase, f21. Furthermore, we discovered a glacis, f72, which abuts f41 along its entire exposed length. [S730JW.J]
F0041C03S821gB has stated that this curving line of stones may be a bin structure associated with a very early phase of the temple complex. As it became covered, f3, then a combination of stones and pavement was built as a substitue. Finally, when that was covered, the stone circle formed by installations, f37 and f46 was a replacement in the final stages of use before abandonment. [S821JW.J]
F0041C10T218As the excavations around this feature continued, its relationship with the extension of the revetment wall, f3, was clarified. At first this structure appeared to abut wall, f3. Later, as f3 was more fully excavated, it became clear that structure, f41, was earlier than and continued under f3 to the southeast. Thus, we concluded that f3 overlaid f41, they being separated by a thin layer of soil which was not assigned a separate feature number. See v98b. [T218JW.J]

F0074A30WZ16Escarpment of hard-packed soil in k22 (and k105) that abuts revetment wall f41. [WZ16JW.J]
F0074B11S730A hard-surfaced mud escarpment in k22 which abuts stone wall, f41, along its entire exposed length and slopes down to the southwest. It is covered by several accumulations and is covered by ash in some places. According to gB, it is most likely equivalent to the Ninevite V escarpment, J1 features 239 and 189, previously excavated. [S730JW.J]
F0074B11T721A hard, dense soil which abuts cut stone wall, f41, and may have served as a late phase escarpment for it. It appears to slope to the southwest. One lot of sherds from it, q289, was preliminarily evaluated as from the Mittani period by mKB. [T721JW.J]
F0074C03T722This soil feature has previously been identified as a purpose-built mud escarpment, primarily because of its hardness and its proximity to stone wall, f41. As we have excavated it, we find that it covers a stone staircase, f205, three steps of which have been exposed which abuts f41. The surface of feature 74 follows the general slope of wall, f41, (NW to SE), its depth conforms with the steeper slope of the stairs, f205, which abut f41. It is consistently dense and hard-packed. The better view is that f74 is a natural escarpment for wall, f41. It was formed when loess began to cover the steps of ^strc2. The path along the wall continued in use and it was compacted by the weight of those who walked there. [T722JW.J]

F0077A30WZ16One of four bands and lenses of accumulation in k22 that abut the west side of wall cap f192. [WZ16JW.J]
F0077B11S731A thin band of natural accumulation bounded by the west baulk of k22 and the west face of revetment wall, f3. It is the highest accumulation to meet, but not cover, the wall. It is the first distinct soil feature under the recently removed north baulk of k22. It is mostly uniform - a mix of silt and sand - and contains numerous small pebbles and randomly oriented sherds. [S731JW.J]
F0077B11S802This feature, excavated by both the large and small pick, was characterized by a hard crust over laminated layers of aeolian soil. There was an abrupt transition from silt to pebbles at the intersection of this and feature 78 below. Comparing elevations, this feature should be equivalent to the natural floor, f39 found directly to the north in k23. This accumlation was horizontal and extended from the south face of the north baulk of k22 northward into k23 until it met the large stones of f37. As stated before, it was bounded on the east by the west face of revetment wall, f3. [S802JW.J]

F0078B11S731A laminar layer of sand, pebbles, and silt beneath natural accumulation, f77, in the NE quadrant of k22. It is bounded by the west baulk of k22 and the west face of revetment wall, f3. Its laminations vary in thickness and consistency, with more sand, more, silt, or more pebbles in one rather than the other. It is relatively free of sherds. [S731JW.J]
F0078B11S802This feature was excavated using both the large and the small pick. It was characterized by large areas of mixed laminated pebbles, sand, and silt, interspersed with areas of laminated silt, which was easily removed with the trowel. This accumlation was horizontal and extended from the south face of the north baulk of k22 northward into k23 until it met the large stones of f37. As stated before, it was bounded on the east by the west face of revetment wall, f3. The associated q-lot, q129-p, contained at least one painted rim sherd, which according to mKB could be either late Khabur or early Mittani. [S802JW.J]

F0080B11S731A band of natural accumulation in the north baulk of k22, under laminations of f78. It is bounded by the west baulk of k22 and the west face of revetment wall, f3. The boundary between f78 and f80 was distinct, both in color and in texture, chaging from softer sandy laminations to densely packed dust. [S731JW.J]
F0080B11S803There was a marked transition into and out of this feature. Atop was a soft lamination of silt, pebbles, and sand, f78. Below was a soft lamination of silt, pebbles, and sand, f81. However, this accumulation was hard, laminated silt. It covered the top of one large stone. [S803JW.J]

F0081B11S803The transition to this feature was again dramatic. Accumulation above, f80, was hard and silty, while this feature comprised sand, silt and pebbles. Covers the tops of some large stones to the south of installation f37 and to the west of revetment wall, f3. [S803JW.J]

It is bounded by the west baulk of k22 and the west face of revetment wall, f3. Its shape is roughly triangular, with the top being relatively flat and level. Its west side is bounded by natural accumulation, f84 and its east side is bounded by wall, f3. In the vicinity of wall, f41, it is bounded by an ashy layer, f85 to the east of wall, f41 and an ashy layer, f83 to the west of wall, f41. [S731JW.J]

F0083C99S804This feature was originally described as a natural accumulation below natural accumulation, f82, which covered the stones of f99 and of f41. Once f83 was exposed, it was clear that it was actually the living accumulation above the glacis, f74, to installation, f41. The pottery will be analyzed specially to help identify the phase of the glacis and wall system. [S804JW.J]

F0086B11S731The first of five layers of soil and pebbles, seen in section, which abut the east side of the capstones, f192, to revetment wall, f3, then extend into the east baulk of k22. It does not cover the top of that wall. It is impossible to tell at this point whether it is natural accumulation which built up against the highest line of stones (perhaps memory stones), whether it is part of a late mud glacis or whether it is fill placed behind the wall during construction.

F0089B11S816This laminar accumulation is very similar to those on the west side of the revetment wall, f3. This may mean that the top stones were above any glacis which may have been a part of the temple mound. [S816JW.J]

F0090B11S816jW noticed that the top stones of the revetment wall, f3, in the vicinity of this narrow band of accumulation rest on the bricky material which constitutes f90 north of the stone dam. This may indicate that the top stones of f3 were laid just as the main wall became covered. [S816JW.J]

However, a detailed investigation by fAB, rE, and jW led to the conclusion that, considering the stratigraphy of the west baulk of k22 and k23 and the somewhat sandy texture of f122 which covered it, that f121 was a glacis-like feature formed by the action of water on sedimentation.

F0135A30WZ16Natural accumulation in k33 under accumulation f128 and covering floor accumulation f137. [WZ16JW.J]
F0135B11S813The laminar accumulation under accumulation, f128, in k33. It has a moderately hard surface, but readily separates from the layer of soil immediately below, f137, when struck with the small pick and troweled. It was softer and more granular than the accumulation above, f128. From the east section of the western half-square, it can be seen that a small N-S strip of of both f135, and floor accumulation, f137 was removed near that section earlier during excavation of accumulation, f128. [S813JW.J]
F0135B11S814This feature differed markedly from those above and below. The laminations above it, f128, were relatively soft, greyish brown in color, and contained a mixture of silt, sand and pebbles. f128 could be removed with light strokes of the large pick. The floor accumulation below, f137, was very hard, had no sand or pebbles, and was very gray. When picked with a small pick it came of in rectangular chunks. It had surface sherds. This accumulation, f135, was noticeably brown. Although laminar, the individual layers were very thin and contained only silt. [S814JW.J]
F0135C03S814In a meeting with the unit staff and fAB, gB contrasted the depositional process between laminations (which were found above this feature) and a laminar floor (which describes this surface. Laminations are deposited when water flow is blocked and debris remains after evaporation. The resulting surface is not regularly used. On the other hand, a laminar outdoor floor is formed when dust and other debris settles on it and is compressed layer by layer as people walk on it. [S814JW.J]

F0136B11S813The natural accumulaton under topsoil, f134 in k32. It has a hard crust, with scattered soft spots throughout. The crust was caused by the action of water on aeolian soil. The soft spots were animal holes. Seen in section, it consists of laminar, alternating layers of silt (crust) and sand. [S813JW.J]

F0137A30WZ16Floor accumulation in k33 under accumulation f135 and above escarpment f74. [WZ16JW.J]
F0137B11S813A very hard, dense floor accumulation above the escarpment, f41, in k33. It contains sherds and rises in elevation from east to west, just opposite to what we had predicted from the parts of f41 which are visible in k22. Along the east part of the west half baulk, it can be seen in section since we accidentally removed several centimeters of it along that baulk as we were excavating f128 with the big pick. Because of the rise to the west instead of the expected fall, we will excavate it very carefully with the small pick on S814. As this layer was well-sealed, hopefully the sherds will tell us something about when it was in service. [S813JW.J]
F0137C03S813In deciding that this layer was not an escarpment but a floor accumulation associated with wall, f41, and its escarpment, f74, previously excavated in k22 to the south, we made four observations: First, as we excavate accumlation, f135, above it, we can see that pottery sherds are embedded in the surface of f137, which one would not expect in an escarpment. Second, according to rE, supervisor of unit J1, this layer resembles hard accumulations above the highest escarpment in J1. Third, escarpment, f74, touches stones of wall, f41, but here, f137 seems to cover stones. Fourth, we expect that an escarpment would fall away to the west from the stone installation, f126. From what we see so far, this feature, f137, does not. [S813JW.J]
F0137C10T901When this feature was originally excavated in MZ21, it was observed that it was unusual in that it sloped down from west to east. Further excavation in MZ22 revealed that downslope was the west side of a gully that was cut into f137 by fast-flowing water. A number of such gullys are in this and adjacent loci in many strata. Overall, f137 slopes up from west to east as it meets the revetment wall, f41. [T901JW1.J]

F0151A30WZ16Stone in k21, a part of wall capstones f192 that had been displaced in antiquity. [WZ16JW.J]
F0151B11S816A very large limestone block in k21 which may have been a top stone in the final version of revetment wall, f3. It is the first of those aligned north-south after f3 turns to the north at its western edge after running basically east-west for most of its length to the east. The stone is displaced to the west from other stones in the line and is at least partially founded on soil, which suggests that it was displaced from its original position (which may be as little as 10cm to the east.

It extends from the southwest corner of k22, through k11 and k1 to J1. There is a relatively thin surface layer which probably reflects the natural aeolian accumulation that has built up since f3 was partially excavated in several previous seasons. Underneath is a brown layer of soil, then patches of reddish baqaya, then the top of an ashy series of laminiations, f158. [S818JW.J]

It extends from the southwest corner of k22, through k11 and k1 to J1. This accumulation is expected to cover escarpment, f74, as it runs southeastward toward a similar escarpment in J1, J1 feature 189 and J1 feature 239. A section along the east baulk of k1 indicates that it is up to one meter deep and composed of layers of ashy laminations. [S819JW.J]
F0158B11T722An accumulation consisting of densly packed fine grained soil with imbedded sherds and stones along and south of revetment wall, f189. It is atop early, f184, and late, f169, escarpments to revetment wall, f189. Its source was probaly loess, which gradually covered the escarpments. Its compaction may be explained by its use as a footpath. [T722JW.J]

F0161B11T722A high-founded cluster of stones held together by mud mortar that projects southwest from a sharp corner of the late Mittani revetment wall, f3.

F0185B11S904The glacis associated with oldest version of the revetment wall, f189. It can only be seen in section because it was excavated in a previous season during the search for the western extension of the revetment wall system which originates in unit J2 to the east and continues west through units J3 and J1 and now into J5. It is made of the red baqaya virgin soil of this region, which charateristically contains small nodules of limestone. From the section it cannot be determined whether it abutted or bonded with the revetment wall. [S904JW.J]

We cannot yet see the bottom of the revetment wall, f189, in this area, but the stones of f188 are considerably lower and better cut than the part we can see. Although pottery above this feature has not been analyzed, these stones were probably cut and placed during the Late Chalcolithic period. [S904JW.J]

F0199B11S913A triangular section of stone paving just to the northwest of the intersection of revetment walls, f3 and f189, and wall f186, in k12. Its function is unknown and may range from a single layer floor or decoration, to a substantial corner buttress. [S913JW2.J]
F0199C31T403In the course of a comprehensive review of features associated with Specific Labels it became apparent that the evidence suggesting that this feature was a buttress to the original revetment wall, f189, and hence belonged to Stratum 65 (Early Dynastic period), was weak. Although f199 abuts f189, it also abuts the late Mittani period wall, f3. All we see of f199 are surface stones. (We have not dug the surrounding accumulation.) They are similar to other groups of stones near both f3 (f4) and f189 (f6). Since we know so little about what comprises f199, the more conservative view is to associate it with the wall structure which encloses it, f3. Therefore the appropriate stratum of f199 should be Stratum 14c (Mittani period) in the JPC series. [T403JW.J]

F0200B11V922Five randomly oriented, medium-sized, boulders which sit in a sandy soil, 206, which fills a gully which cut the Mittani period soil escarpment, f74, to Early Dynastic period wall, f74. It is likely that they were carried by swift flowing water from a deteriorated installation higher on the temple mound; however, we can not rule out the possibility that they were intentionally placed in the gully to mitigate erosion from flowing water. [V922JW.J]
F0200C32V922At the very end of the first excavation season (2008-S) five large, loose stones in a water channel were designated as feature, f200. It appears that a description was never entered. At the beginning of the second excavation season (2009-T) the number was used to designate sandy soil in the vicinity of the original five stones. The description mentions that the soil is to the south and is an extension of other nearby sandy soil, f206, to the north. The best resolution of this issue is to incorporate this soil into f206 and designate f200 as the stones which sit in the soil. [V922JW.J]

F0202B11V922One of a series of sandy deposits formed when high volumes of storm water flowed along the outside of the BA temple mound's revetment wall systems. Chances are that the flowing water cut into the silt and sand accumulation, f136, carrying the silt down stream and depositing the sand. [V922JW.J]

F0204B11T725This is the volumetric material in the eastern most northeast projections ("teeth") of the sawtooth-shaped eastern part of locus k100. It is below natural accumulation f174 which was excavated during season MZ21. [T725JW.J]
F0204C01T727noticed a few animal bones as we dug lower toward the level of floor J1f313. However, the soil in f204 was soft, brown, and sandy. The bones were about 24 cm above the north edge of the J1 floor. The floor surface we are seeking is hard and gray, so we conclude that we did not dig into it. [T727JW.J]
F0204C06T727In the process of removing excavated soil adjacent to J1f313, our shovelmen damaged several animal bones there, even though they were covered with plastic. Somewhat fortunately J1 had already photographed the floor with the bones in situ. [T727JW.J]

It was stratigraphically linked to sandy deposit, f202, excavated to the south of stones, f200, which were in the channel. This was the earliest (deepest) found so far in a series of such channels which ran just outside of the revetment wall system. sE, consulting with unit J1 noted that a similar channel was found there at about the same orientation (parallel) to the revetment wall and elevation (9020).

F0209B11T725The laminar sand and silt accumulation below natural accumulation, f135 in the eastern half of k105. It is being excavated to clear space for more extensive excavation of stair, f205, to the east. The layers are clearly visible and are from one to five centimeters thick, alternating between sand containing small pebbles and compressed silt. It probably was formed during a post-Mittnai phase as buildings were destroyed by weathering. The total accumulation is over one meter thick and can also be seen further to the southeast on the north face of locus k100. [T725JW.J]

F0226A30WZ16Undifferentiated soil in k106 partially under floor f213, atop pavement f247 and abutting the stones of f225. [WZ16JW.J]
F0226B11T730Floor accumulation covering stone installation, f225, in the south half of k106. The soil is moist, reflecting a partial barrier to water penetration into f225. The east half of the feature was sealed by Mittani floor f213. The west half was sealed by a surface crust. However, the west half was also in the path of a series of gullies which may have cut the surface of f226 and deposited some Mittani sherds. A preliminary analysis of the ceramics in lot q325 shows a mix of phases, from ED2 to Mittani. Her preliminary assessment dated this feature to ED3, indicating that the stone installation was at least that old. One small piece of plastic was found near the north end of gigantic stone f216. Our best explanation is that it was carried down from above by a burrowing animal. [T730JW.J]
F0226C03WZ16It is more likely that the plastic came from backfilling at the conclusion of these earlier excavations. Therefore it is more suitable to assign this feature to s00-J5B. [WZ17JW.J]
F0226C31WZ16During excavation this feature, described as a floor accumulation, was said to be sealed to the west by a surface crust and to the east by Mittani floor f213. It was assigned to stratum s180b-J5B. Recovered ceramics ranged from Early Dynastic II to Mittani. Problematical was a piece of plastic found in the vicinity of a large stone, f216. At the time its presence was attributed to burrowing animimals even though it was over two meters below the surface. In previous seasons, this area adjacent to the EDIII revetment wall f189 had been partially excavated to trace the wall's outside face. [WZ17JW.J]

F0227C31T810This feature was originally described as the fill of a large pit cut into accumulation, f158. Further investitgation has clarified the situation; it is rather a Mittani deposit in a channel cut into the Third Millennium deposit by an erosion event. [T810JW.J]

F0229B11T801The floor accumulation above the surface of what may be an early escarpment to the northern part of wall, f41, in k33. It is covered by accumulation, f137, which is equal to f74 in k105. [T801JW.J]
F0229C03T806mKB examined the pottery from one lot from this floor accumlation to help determine the period of use of the floor, f230, which it covered. Floor f230 is important because it is the first surface below staircase, f21, and predates it. Since f230 also abuts wall, f41, which predates f21, it might possible to help date f41 by dating f229. The sherds from f229 were solidly Mittani, meaning only that f41 was built on or before that period. [T806JW.J]

F0241A30WZ16Upper layer of soil and sherd escarpment in k106 below accumulation f184, above layer f242, and abutting revetment wall f189. [WZ16JW.J]
F0241B11T805A natural accumulation which abuts the south edge of the second escarpment, f184 in k106. [T805JW.J]
F0241C03T808Many pieces of circumstantial evidence indicate that the revetment wall system was built atop earlier structures which rose to the west and north of J1. Occasional heavy rains produced a water flow along the west and south faces of the wall which eroded the escarpments and forced them to be rebuilt (J1 escarpment 2, f239).
One such area that was constantly subject to erosion was the south wall face near the current juncture of J1 and J5. Although we have not excavated into the wall base, we hypothesize that erosion occurred frequently here. In the first phase of wall use, it was protected by a stone escarpment, f188 and f225. which extended south and down from the south face of the revetment wall, f189. Later, a second escarpment (f184 and perhaps f241). It may have been due to erosion affecting the stone escarpment or for decorative effect.
Based on a J1 section of this escarpment, we expected to see it made of a solid, tapering mass of baqaya. What we have found so far in J5 is a series of layers which alternate between dense, red material and softer gray material. Near the bottom are layers of sherds, f242. Each layer can be clearly seen in N-S and E-W sections of f241 about a meter south of the wall face.
The question is how f241 was formed. [T801JW1.J]
F0241C04T808We will determine the nature of the relationship between f241 and 184 by digging a narrow trench from the exposed south face of f241, northward to the revetment wall face. The west face of the section should resolve the issue. If the layers of f241 came from accumulation, then we should encounter a solid baqaya face for f184 before we reach the wall. It the layers resulted from construction, they should extend to the wall face. [T801JW1.J]
F0241C05T807This feature consistes of alternate layers of hard red and softer grayish soil, interspersed at the bottom by layers of sherds, one of which is f242. It could be one of two things: either a series of accumulations which lay against the second escarpment, f184, or the second escarpment itself, comprised of layers instead of a single mass of baqaya. Later we will cut a trench into f241 toward the revetment wall, f189, to see if we can resolve this dilemma. [T807JW.J]
F0241C05T808The first possibility is that for a time, water flow was dammed in the western part of J1 and the layers are the result of accumulation and sherd placement which hardened before the next weather event. The second is that f184 is a continuation of f241 and that it was purposely built in layers over a short period of time.
Regardless of how or why they were built, the first and second escarpment systems (^esc1 and ^esc2)appear to have successfully protected the revetment wall from the Early Dynastic period into the Mittani period (some 1,000 years). In the Mittani period, the second escarpment was damaged. This damage can be seen in the west section of k106. Then, the Mittani builders attempted to protect the wall by building a series of pebble floors (f247, f249) which appear to abut the stones of the stone escarpment, ^esc1, and slope down to the south from it. Eventually, they lost control of the water problem and the lack of maintenance caused debris to fill the plaza and cover the revetment wall, f189. [T801JW1.J]
F0241C40T808The staffs from J1 and J5, gB, and fAB have discussed the evolution of wall protection systems from the time that the revetment wall, f189, was built, through the various additions, through the Mittani remodeling, to abandonment. Within a given phase the protections system may also have varied according to its relative position along the wall and what destructive elements were acting on it. The highest part of the earliest extant revetment wall (in J1) is high founded and the base is protected by a baqaya projection (J1 escarpment 1, J1f196) which tapers to the south into the plaza. At the wall base it covers the first row of stones. [T801JW1.J]

F0246B11T807This is a level floor surface of grayish soil, very small pebbles and relatively few sherds. It slopes slightly to the south and it abuts the third step of stair, f205.

F0252A30WZ16Natural accumulation in k106 that most likely is equal to accumulation f264 and covers accumulation f262. [WZ16JW.J]
F0252B11T811A layer of soft reddish accumulation in the west half of k106. It was granular and had few sherds, which pottery specialist, hQ, evaluated on site as Mittani. It covers ^esc2, particularly f241. [T811JW.J]
F0252C03WZ16By comparing elevations, color, and approximate location, accumulation f252 is almost certainly equal to accumulation f264, both of which cover reddish accumulations, f262 and f268 respectively. In turn, f268 covers ranks of the stone escarpment, f188 and f225, which is covered by the soil escarpment, f241 and f242. [WZ17JW.J]
F0252C31WZ16This accumulation was described as a soft reddish accumulation, but the measured color was yellowish brown. It was described as covering f241, a component of the soil and sherd second escarpment, but both have approximately the same elevations. [WZ17JW.J]

F0253B11T811A hard, dark yellowish brown accumlation in the northwestern half of k105. It contained relatively many sherds and items. It covered pebble floor, f254, to the north; brick wall segment, f255, in the middle; and reddish accumulation, f256, to the south.

F0254A40V904When we first discovered a pebble surface adjacent to the stone stairway, a12, we defined it as a pavement (pv). Further excavation and analysis showed that it was in fact a mass of pebbles behind dam, a11. They were contained by the dam to the south and the stairway or the revetment wall, f41, to the east. Although we have not yet excavated there, the dam had to have been anchored to the west by another wall, which would have provided the western containment for the pebble mass. Although we can only speculate as to the function of the pebbles, it seems likely that they functioned as either a filter or settling basin. For these reasons we have re-defined it as a stone installation (st-is). [V904JW.J]
F0254B11T811A floor comprised of fist-sized river pebbles that is bounded on the south by wall a11 in k105. The top three steps of f205 are laid atop this surface and it extends north into the north baulk. We found some of the pebbles in the middle of bricks f255, which indicates that at one time a flood of water breached the top of f255. We probably cut the southeast corner of this surface when we excavated stairs, f205, to find the fourth "step," f257. [T811JW.J]
F0254C31T813We continued to remove the pebbles of this feature. What had originally appeared to be a single layer pavement is much deeper in many places than one would expect of a floor. It now appears as if it may have been pebble-rich fill to level and stabilize a surface below, which sloped away to the southwest from the Mittani period revetment wall, f41. [T813JW.J]
F0254C40T815For the last several days we have removed stones from this feature. fAB noted that it is too thick to be a pavement and it is not a sewage drainage because it is not contained by walls. [T815JW.J]

RESULT: It is clear that all of the large, cut stones that we exposed belong to f265 and that there is no pavement of these large stone extending to the west in the north corner of k105. [T826JW.J]

F0284C01T826ACTION: We finished excavating the accumulation, f287, between the northenmost stones of ^esc1, f188, and the top of an earlier wall, f284, which formed the foundation for the revetment wall, f189.
RESULT: We were hoping to find enough ceramics to help date the time of construction of f284, but there were fewer than 20 sherds after two days of excavation in that restricted space (about 20cm), almost all of which were body sherds. The most mKB could say was that they were earlier than the revetment wall, f189, which was built during the Early Dynastic period. Because we dug down as much as 20cm we could tell that the stones of f284 were large and dressed. They formed a smooth face on the top and on the south side. [T826JW.J]
F0284C02T824PROPOSED ACTION: We will excavate a narrow channel of soil, f288, between f189 and f284.
PURPOSE: To determine the relationship between the northenmost line of the stones of ^esc1 and the line of stones, f284, beneath the revetment wall, f189. [T824JW.J]

F0286C01T826ACTION: We finished excavating the exploratory trench, f286.
RESULT: We found that the stones of installation, f194, are bonded with the stones of the top four steps of installations, f205 and f257. The lowest set of stones, f266, appear associated with the line of stones, f276, and appear to form an escarpment above accumulations above the stones of ^esc1.

F0287C01T826ACTION: We excavated the remaining floor accumulation, f282, covering the pebble pavement, f287, which abuts the first escarpment, ^esc1, to the west.
RESULT: There is some erosion in the pavement's southeastern corner, probably caused by water flow along the southwestern most row of escarpment stones. Sherds from the pavement and from the floor accumulaion above have been idenmtified by mKB as Late Ninevite V. [T826JW.J]

F0293A30WZ16Cut stone in k105 that leans against revetment wall f41 and is founded on the stone escarpment f265. [WZ16JW.J]
F0293B11T901A cut limestone block whose thickness is considerably less than its height or width. Its top leans obliqely against revetment wall, f41, while its base rests on the east edge of the top stone, f265, of the first escarpment, ^esc1. This feature, f293 appears placed to deflect water dripping over the top of the wall away from the base, thus reducing the possibility of erosion. [T901JW1.J]

F0295B11VX04A section of a stone wall seen through a "window" cut into the western section of accumulation, f128, under the bottom step of monumental staircase, f21. The purpose of the cut was to verify how the staircase stones were founded. The stones follow the general alignment of the western face of the revetment wall, f41, but a definite stratigraphic link has not yet been established. [VX04JW.J]

K0014C01S806At the beginning of the day, began to remove natural accumulation, f112, which was present throughout the locus and surrounded the stones of installation, f108. Uncovered a semi-circular arc of small stones, along the eastern baulk. [S807JW.J]
K0014C01S809Continued to excavate natural accumulation, f112, with large picks. Documented and removed an arc of stones, f119, along the eastern baulk. Uncovered a stone installation, f123, running NW to SE in the southeastern quadrant. [S809JW.J]
K0014C01S814We began to remove the safety baulk on the south side of the locus. We used features previously identified from excavation in the main part of the locus. One floor surface and what were probably crude walls associated with it were identifed near the end of the day. Features have not been assigned. The locus is filled with isolated limestone blocks and organized rows of stones which we have not been able to link with others nearby. [S814JW.J]
K0014C01S814We prepared and photographed, v80, a long view looking east and west across 4 loci (k14, k24, k34, k44) that documented the relationship between the portion of the temple mound which includes the staircase, f21, and various stone installations in k14 and k24; the mini-plaza to the west in k34; and the stonework in k44 which forms the western boundary of the mini-plaza. dL analyzed the open spaces between the various stoneworks in k14 and k24 to see if they had been paved.

K0022C01S731We drew and photographed the section of the north baulk which was approximately bisected by revetment wall, f3, which continued to the north into k23. Because we could not verify that the soil features we see in the baulk had been properly identified and documented, we assigned them new J5 numbers and described all of them. Features f77 to f85 are located to the west of f3 and are assumed to have built up outside the mound, while features f86 to f90 are located to the east of f3 and are presumed to be part of the temple mound complex. [S731JW.J]
K0022C01S803took dirty photo of the area bounded as follows; to the south by the south baulk of k22; to the east by the revetment wall, f3; to the north by the stones of installation, f37; and to the west by the west baulks of k22 and k23. The purpose was to draw templates to assist in pottery analysis of features which abut wall, f3. [S803JW.J]
K0022C01S814We traced the excarpment from the northwest corner of the locus where it was first discovered, south along the outer face of wall, f41, to which it belongs. The soil above the escarpment was defined as mixed since it was deposited by a combination of backdirt from locus k100 and aeolian soil deposited since the revetment wall system was first excavated several seasons ago. As a result the pottery will tell us little about when the excarpment was built and used. [S814JW.J]
K0022C01S816Removed accumulations and laminations f86, f87, f88, and f89, from a narrow strip east of revetment wall, f3 and west of the west face of the west baulk of k12. The purpose was to determine when the top stones of f3 were placed. We stopped before excavating f90, which comprised a dam of small stones on the south and red, bricky material to the north. To fully explore this feature, k12 must be completely excavated to this elevation, which will not happen this season. jW looked at the pottery lots in the field, which seemed to be Mittani, Phase 6, which we would expect from the stratigrapy. The results were documented in view, v84. [S816JW.J]
K0022C01S817We photographed ,v85, the results of excavating the series of layers between the east face of revetment wall, f3, and the west face of the unexcavated portion of k12. Although we halted work before the lowest layer, f90, was excavated. mKB reported that some Phase 1 sherds were present in the q-lot for f89. We measured and photographed the location, v85. The large limestone block, f151, had almost certainly shifted away from its original place at the southwest corner of revetment wall, f3, and was resting on a soil pillar, f154, After measuring and photography, v89, v90, we moved it back to its likely original position atop the lower wall stones and removed the pillar. [S817JW.J]
K0022C01S818Began to excavate laminar, natural accumulation, f157. It is a narrow strip that follows the south face of revetment wall, f3. The goal is to determine if the escarpment to the plaza is continuous from the west face (where it is f74) to the plaza itself, excavated as J1f239 in this and previous seasons. [S818JW.J]
K0022C01S821With two teams we excavated a considerable amount of natural accumulation, f157, from the area to the south of revetment wall, f3, in a strip about 100cm wide. Because we expect that the escarpment rises from east to west and because we see part of it as f74 as it abuts wall, f41 along the outer west face of f3, we expected to trace f74 around the corner of f3 as it turned to the east. However, pickman Hussein stated that he was seeing a variety of textures, colors, and inclusions (including brick pieces and ash) in the soil he was excavating, not the hard material he had encountered next to f41. [S821JW.J]
K0022C01S823Removed natural accumulation, f157, from a 100cm strip immediately south of revetment wall, f3. Of interest was a gulley, which began to the northwest along the west face of wall, f41, in k33 and then ran along the south face of revetment wall, f3. [S824JW.J]
K0022C02S731gB, fAB, and jW discussed the approach to excavating the glacis/escarpment, f74. It descends to the southwest rapidly from wall, f41 and has been broken by at least one pit which is filled with ashy soil. In the SW corner of k22 it is covered by a number of layers of modern and ancient accumulations. Since a partial baulk at the intersection of k22 and k21 would have to be removed to complete the task we decided to cover the exposed part of f74 (which has been photographed) with plastic and finish tracing its extents at the end of the season when we expect that more of it will be present in k33 to the northwest, which is presently being excavated. As to the new features, we will excavate those to the west of f3 first, assuming as elsewhere, that those would have built up on the outside of the wall, eventually covering it. We will not excavate the features to the east of f3 until we need to know how it was built. [S731JW.J]
K0022C03S821In a meeting with jW, gB stated that he believed that the part of the revetment wall, f3, that we are seeing may be a late addition which includes the pavement of stones contained by it and juts out to the south of the original line of f41. On the other hand, f41, is a much earlier structure that passes under f3. As such we still may have not yet reached the escarpment even though we are below the third course of stones which comprise f3. [S821JW.J]

K0024C01S813The east and north baulks were drawn and photographed on S812 and S813, respectively. See v74, v75, w14, w13. We began removing the east baulk as f133. In the baulk were an extension to the north of stone installation, f14, and a clear indication that f14 was identical to installation, f108, in k14. In addition we found an N-S line of stones, f140, which resemble those that form the west face of the top of staircase, f21. [S813JW.J]

K0032B11T318This locus was excavated to clear sightlines into J5 from an observation platform built directly to the south. [T318JW1.J]
K0032C01S813After photography, v78, a crew from A20 began to excavate the topsoil, f134, with the large pick. After two pick runs, we began to excavate the naturual accumulation under the topsoil, f136. [S813JW.J]
K0032C01S814We resumed excavation of natural accumulation, f136, with large picks. Except for a few isolated small stones, there was nothing of interest, which so far matches our hypothesis, that this locus overlays the western extension of escarpment, f74 - first discovered in k22 to the east - and that nothing else was ever built thereafter in that location. [S814JW.J]
K0032C01S816We continued to excavate natural accumulation, f136, which has not changed since we removed the topsoil. The outside sections of the east and north baulks confirm that the accumulation is uniform to a depth of about two meters from the surface. [S816JW.J]
K0032C01S817We continued to excavate natural accumulation, f136. At the end of the day we decided to cease excavations there and document the results. [S817JW.J]

K0033B11T318This locus was the expected location of link between the monumental staircase, f21, and the stonework of locus k43. [T318JW1.J]
K0033C01S731We continued to remove natural accumulation, f59 with two crews using large picks. Although not of uniform consistency having areas of soft and hard patches due to the action of water and erosion after abandonment, we kept digging it as one feature because the overall color and texture did not change. It contained few inclusions. [S731JW.J]
K0033C01S806Finished removing the east baulk, f107, and a cluster of melon-sized stones that was imbedded in it, f111. Began excavating packed floor surface, f102, in order to define the interface between the staircase, f21; the wall, f41; and its glacis, f74. [S807JW.J]
K0033C01S809Continued to carefully excavate the clean, hard, naturally compacted, fine-grained accumulation, f102. Under it was a very sandy laminar accumulation, f122. As we removed this acccumulation, we noticed a very hard-surface accumulation, f124, underneath, which abutted the N-S line of stones, f126, in the same way that glacis f74 abutted wall, f41 to the south. On this basis, jW tentatively called the accumulation in this area, glacis, f121. Later detailed analysis with the assistance of fAB and rE established that f121 was a continuation of f124, and that it was a natural glacis formed atop f74, which is several layers of accumulation below. Late in the day we began removing f124. [S809JW.J]
K0033C01S813Began excavating laminated accumulation, f128, with the large pick as planned. Along the western face of the midline boundary, pickman Kamiran reported that the feature was now much harder and was breaking up into rectangular pieces of dense material. On the south end of the eastern border with stone installation f126, a lower stone in line with the staircase, f21, appeared. These data were evidence that the escarpment that we were searching for may possibly slope up to the west rather than down as we had expected. After thorough cleaning, the locus was photographed, v79. After shifting to the small pick, we started excavating a new soil accumulation, f135, below f128. We started from the far southeast corner, where we could see the escarpment, f74, about 10cm below and to the east. We began to remove f135 and found that it covered a very hard, gray layer with some embedded sherds. As it was still about 5cm above f74, we designated it floor accumulation, f137. Traces of f137 could be seen in the west section of the east half square in k33 and in the north edge of the west section of k22. [S813JW.J]
K0033C01S814We finished excavating laminar floor accumulation, f135. It could be seen in section and differed in both color (brown versus gray) and texture (hard versus very hard) from the floor accumulation, f137, below it which in turn covers the almost stone-like escarpment, f74. Consulted with rE, supervisor of unit J1 (which has several similar escarpment surfaces with hard accumulations above) to properly instruct pickman. [S814JW.J]
K0033C01S816We continued to excavate floor accumulation, f137. Two pottery lots, q204 and q209 were tagged for immediate evaluation of the phase by mKB. [S816JW.J]
K0033C01S817We removed two more q-lots from floor accumulation, f137. There is a miniature wadi that has formed about 50 cm west of the stone installation, f126, and most of the pottery and bones came from the bottom of it. The situation was documented in v88. [S817JW.J]
K0033C01S818Drew, w17, and photographed, v90, the bottom part of the north baulk in preparation for removal. [S818JW.J]
K0033C02S806We will excavate f102 and the accumulations below it by starting in the far SE corner of the locus, move west to the N-S midline, then move north toward f21. [S807JW.J]
K0033C02S813On S814 we will remove the balance of f135, which is primarily located in the eastern quarter of the locus. We well clean well and photgraph, then consult with gB and fAB before we begin to excavate f137. [S813JW.J]
K0033C02S817as of today we will cease excavation in this locus for the MZ21 season. [S817JW.J]

K0105B11T722A long, narrow locus consisting of the north half of locus, k104. It has an east baulk conforming to the Mozan grid separating it from locus k106. The purpose of this baulk is to preserve a section prependicular to the revetment walls. [T722JW.J]
K0105C02T808The issue in this locus is to determine how the shape of the architecture of the construction in the periods Early Dynastic through Mittani were influenced by the shape of the preexisting mound in the Late Chalcolithic period. A wall of cut stones, f41, is the key to this analysis. We cannot sink a probe behind it or in front of it because later structures would be damaged. However, we can examine floor surfaces which either abut or whose eastward extensions were cut by later construction. Hopefully the earliest of these floors will have been constructed about the same time as the f41 wall. So far we have removed floor f74, which abutted f41 and contained Mittani ceramics. We have exposed a stepped stone structure, f205, which was covered by f74 in the vicinity of f41. Farther west from the wall, f74 covered an accumulation, f244 over a rough sherd and pebble floor, f246. This floor was roughly horizontal and abuts the second of the f205 "steps." Under and along the southeastern edge of f246 there are two hard surfaces which slope down from east to west. It is possible that these are earlier escarpments to f41. We will expose all of one floor surface before proceeding to excavate the next. Pottery from each floor and its floor accumulation will be sent to mKB for special analysis. [T808JW.J]

P0005B11T330This is a plot of specific label apr 1, which forms the late Mittani western entrance to the BA temple. Its primary feature is the monumental staircase, f21, located on the western side of the entrance complex. To the north the staircase is bordered by an E-W row of large boulders, f14 and f108. To the south, on the west end it was bordered by a row of large, cut stones, f20. To the north of the northern border were two hard packed surfaces, f65 and f66, which may have been the surface of the mound during later phases. On the east side of the entrance was a stone threshold, f123. The threshold and the staircase were linked by packed earth surfaces, f140 (west) and f195 (east). [T330JW1.J]

P0007B11T330This is a plot of a specific label, bin 1. A bin is a circular enclosure found in the vicinity of a temple. It may have had a ceremonial function since it was close to the pathway that lead from the Mittani monumental staircase, f21, to the BA temple. Its circular elements are stone installations, f37 and f46. A row of stones, f192, was placed atop Mittani wall, f3, and led to the south entrance to the bin. Stone block, f38, sat atop wall, f192. Features f48 and f52 were packed earth surfaces which formed the floor of the bin. [T330JW1.J]

V0080O25S814This major view shows the important features associated with the western side of the monumental temple complex. Most would have been visible and in use in the late Mittani phase. The principal feature is the monumental staircase, f21, and the line of large limestone boulders which define its northern limits. Other associated stone installations that channel attention to the BA temple are shown in the foreground. In the middle is a flat, open area with a natural pavement, f70. In the background are a series of stone installations that run N-S. Their function may be to define the western edge of the sacral area. [S823JW.J]

V0081O25S814This view shows the relationship between three types of accumulation and stone installation, f126. Acumulation above floor accumulation, f134, was clean and consisted of multiple layers of silt compacted by people walking on an outdoor surface. It is brown and relatively free from inclusions. Floor accumulation, f137, above escarpment, f74, is harder, gray, and has sherds pressed flat by people walking on it. The wall to which the excarpment is associated is hidden by the lower stones of f126. [S823JW.J]

The stairway, f21, which was bounded on the north side by the stones of f14 and f108, probably formed a pathway to the BA temple that was defined by the stones of f140 and f123. [S823JW.J]

V0116O25S919This final photgraph documents the northern terminus of the revetment wall system as it intersects the southern border of the stairway. At the bottom of the photgraph is the oldest component of the wall system, f41, which runs southeast to northwest and may date to the early dynastic period. Crossing, but not abutting it, is the major Mittani wall system, f3, which runs south to north. The stones of f99 form a triangle which smooths the transition between the wall systems and the edge of the staircase. The stones of f37 and f46 are seen as a line but actually form a circular bin structure. In time the revetment wall, f3, began to be covered by accumulations, so during remodeling another line of stones, f196 and f151, were added to the top. Stone, f38, is an isolated one with not known function. Another line of stones, f19, probably frames a late pathway. [S919JW.J]

Feature 90 comprises baqaya material found elsewhere on the mound in glacis and escarpments. Here it is on the east side of the revetment wall. It intersects the top stones of f3, but is below the stones added at the time of late remodeling, f192. (This indicates that f3 and f90 were built at the same time.) These top stones,f192, are at the same elevation as(contemporary with) those of f46, but well below those of f38 and f19, which had to have been built after f192 was covered. [S919JW.J]

V0118O25S919This final photograph shows the major elements of the stonework of Mittani Phase 14 in relationship to the BA temple, seen on the top of the mound in the upper right hand photograph. The focal point is a monumental staircase, f21, which leads upward to the east from a small plaza, f102 and f70. It is bounded on the north by stone borders, f14 and f108, and on the south by f20. Prior to the time the staircase was built, the wall defining the sacred space was f41 which had a buttress, f194, and a mud glacis, f137. The revetment wall, f3, (not shown here) that is below the late addition to the top, f192, uses the triangular stone installation, f99, to fill the space between f3 and f41. The stones of f37, f126, and f142 are later additions whose function is unclear. The stones of f152 and f109 are isolated, high-founded blocks whose function and source is unknown. [S919JW.J]

Stone installations f14 and f108 form the northern border of the staircase and the temple access path. Stone installation f20 forms the southern border of the staircase, but the access path is not bounded on its southern side. The top of the staircase and stone installations f140 and f123 delimit areas of pavement, f69 and f195. Isolated stone f109 sits on a pillar of accumulation f112. The stones of installation f142 project south from border f108, but we do not yet understand their function. [S919JW.J]

Three isolated boulders, f152, can be seen to the south, but it is not clear if they were purposely placed. To the north of the line of border boulders are two hard-packed surfaces; a floor, f65, to the west and an accumulation, f66, to the east. [S919JW.J]

V0121O25S919This final photograph shows all of the important stonework which has been excavated in the eastern portion of J5. It includes loci k14, k22, k23, k24, k32, k33, and k34. We assume that the works were constructed in the Mittani period in service of the BA temple, which is shown in the background. We also assume that this construction was part of a major shift to the west of sacral functions from a revetment wall, plaza, and staircase in the far southeast of the temple mound. Features shown here include the staircase, f21 and its northern and southern boundaries, f14 and f108, and f20 respectively. To the west are several iterations of the west plaza, including f137, f128, and f70. The plaza was cut at various times by a gully, f168, which carried water from the north along the iterations of the revetment wall. The earliest wall seen here is f41, with later additions f3 and f192. The stones of f99 serve as a transitional element between the staircase and walls f3 and f41, which are not oriented to the same axis. The purpose if the stones of f194 are not known, but they may have served as a berm to protect the wall from water damage. The stones of f37 and f46 form a bin similar to those found on the eastern side of the mound complex and at the temple. Floor f48 and stonework f197 is associated with the bin. Stones f19 and f38 along with floor f54 are high founded and may have been built as the sacral use finally broke down. [S919JW.J]

V0122O25S919This final photograph shows six of the eight assigned specific labels, which are groupings of elements with a specific, common function but that were not necessarily deposited in the same stratum (here, built at the same time). There are three wall systems: ^wall1 was probably built as early as the Early Dynastic period, and may have served to delimit the sacred area to the west of the temple; ^wall3 is a continuation of the original revetment wall system which extends from J2 in the east and was built in the Early Dynastic period; ^wall2 is a Mittani period extension that was probably associated with the shift of sacral functions from the east to the west. ^stair1 is a structure associated with ^wall2 and was built during the Mittani when access to the temple was shifted from the east to the west. ^bin1 is a late Mittani period addition, probably made to preserve the sacred functions after ^stair1 was covered by accumulations. ^room1 is a very late working area with a plaster floor surface.

V0124O25S922This final photograph shows the state of k32 at the end of excavations. Although this season the primary purpose was to improve sightlines to the monumental staircase and revetment wall from the viewing platform shown on the upper right, in future seasons we planned to excavate it to learn more about the escarpment, 74, to the earliest wall system, f41, which lays below the laminations, f167. (The laminations probably represent the material from mudbrick and pise buildings on the surrounding hillsides that went out of use and disolved due to weathering. At the time the monumental staircase was built, f137, was the surface of the plaza to the west of it, and covered f74. However, over time it was cut by a gully, f168. The natural accumulation, f136, started just below the topsoil and continued to the laminations. It is primarily post-abandonment accumulation of aeolian soil hardened by standing water. [S922JW.J]

It shows the dual nature of accumulations which built up against and eventually covered the revetment wall, f3, and its top stones, f192. The lower of the two accumulations is laminar, f174. It is the debris from decaying mudbrick and pise buildings that was washed down from the surrounding hills and collected in a bounded space. After abandonment, aeolian soil was deposited and formed natural accumualtion f159. [S922JW.J]

In a previous excavation to trace the revetmet wall, all soil features above it were excavated. However, we can see in section that under and behind the wall stones was a layer of baqaya, f185. There was a hard surface, f191, above the baqaya which would have met the top wall stones and formed the surface of the temple mound behind the revetment wall. This surface was covered by a layer of ash, f190. [S922JW.J]

With the Mittani western expansion of the ceremonial function came revetment wall, f3, stone installation, f99, staircase, f21 and its southern border stones, f20, and the second escarpment, f137. In the Mittani remodeling, stone circle, f37, f46, and f126, platform, f197, and topstones f192 were added. Also a gully, f168 formed along the line of f41. In the last stages of occupation, stone structure f19 and stone f38 were added. [S922JW.J]

Feature f189 is the westward continuation of the ancient revetment wall. We assume that f186 is its turn to the north in the general direction of the BA temple. We further assume that f3 is a later addition, made to develop the western plaza and staircase (not shown) when its more extensive counterpart to the southeast became covered. Stone clusters f4, f198 and f188 seem to part of paving between the turns of the ancient and more recent walls. Stone cluster f6 may have served the same function for the ancient wall. Feature f5 is a baulk which remains from excavation in previous seasons. [S922JW.J]

It features the wall itself, f3 and later capstones, f151 and f192. There are two sections of stone pavement (f4 and f198) shown on the temple (northeastern) side of the wall. These pavements are probably equal and covered by the residual volumetric material from previous excavations, f5. In the lower left of the photograph are two relatively crude stone structures, f155 and f161. It is more likely than not that they served as berms to divert water from gullies, f168 and f164, away from the corner of the revetment wall. They do not seem substantial enough to be buttresses for strengthening the corner. [S922JW.J]

V0138O25S922This final photograph documents the timing of the late modification to the northern part of the Mittani revetment wall system. In an attempt to identify the strata associated with this, we excavate a narrow trench to the east of the east face of the wall. Five separate layers were identified as features (f86 to f90) running from the top of the capstones (f192) of the wall down to the glacis, f90. The top three layers contained Mittani sherds. The floor accumulation, f89, above the glacis contained a mixture of sherds from Late Chalcolithic, through Early Dynastic to Mittani. We interpret this to mean that the revetment wall addition, f3, was laid against a much earlier glacis, possibly associated with wall f41 (not shown). On the other hand, the capstones, f192, were laid against the MIttani accumulations, as were the stones of f46 to the north. The line of stones, f19, was laid atop soil which covered f192 and f46, indicating that they were a very late addition, likely in the time of non-sacral use, the Middle Assyrian period. [S922JW.J]

V0139O25S922This final photograph documents the relationship among various stone and brick structures which served to define the western limit of the sacral area associated with the BA temple complex. There was a packed earth plaza (f70, f102, f97, and f180) which extended westward from the western monumental entrance to the temple. It abutted a brick wall/floor, f196, with which a tannur, f181, was associated. As accumulations built up against the steps of the entrance, lines of stones (f49, f91, and f76) were added to retain the definition of the space. When the staircase was covered, accumulation, f61, was the highest level which contained Mittani sherds. Then, Middle Assyrian ceramics were deposited in accumulation, f57, upon which the stones of structure f28, f193, f163, and f71 were laid. [S922JW.J]

V0140O25S922This photograph is a study of the buildup and use of the west end of the plaza associated with the Mittani remodeling of the temple mound complex (the move west). It was taken to help determine and interpret the stratigraphic sequence. Brickwork f196 was probably associated with the construction of the staircase. Floor f180 (in which tannur f181 and whole jar i32 sat) met the top of the bottom step of the staircase. Thereafter, Mittani floor accumulation, f60 and natural accumulations f58 and f61 built up, occasioning the need to construct successive lines of stones (f49 and f91) to maintain the definition of the plaza. Eventually the sacred function of the plaza ended and a Middle Assyrian accumulation (f57) built up, upon which was built another stone structure, f28 and f193. After abandonment, aeolian accumulations f49, f62 and f18 covered everything. [S922JW.J]

The interface between accumulation f61 in which Mittani ceramics were found and accumulation f57 (=f42) in which Middle Assyrian ceramics were found marks the time that the Mittani sacral traditions of the temple mound ended. The stones of structure f49 are laid on f61 and f58 mark this structure as the last Mittani construction. Therefore, the stones of f28, which were laid on f57 which covers f49, are the only structures at Tell Mozan which we know were built in the time of Middle Assyrian influence. [S922JW.J]

V0222O25U812This view shows all of the wall systems built in this place from before the EDIII period through the late Mittani period. The top stones of wall, f284, are the earliest, but cannot yet be dated. The stone escarpment, ^esc1 consisting of f184, f225, f265, and f293, has EDIII deposits overlaying it. Its alignment with wall, f41, to the west and its divergence from the main EDIII revetment wall, f189, to the east suggest that f41 and ^esc are associated and were built before f189. Wall, f3, was dated to the late Mittani period, and only roughly follows the alignment of the f41 and f189 walls (a portion of it rests on a soil pillar, f294). Finally, a layer of stones, f192 was laid atop f3 in the final stages of Mittani occupation. [U812JW.J]

V0223DO25U812This sub-view shows that, unlike revetment wall, f41, which abuts the stones of ^esc1, the eastern part of the EDIII revetment wall, f189, does not abut the escarpment. There is a gap, illustrated by the test probe, f287, between the two, which suggests that the wall and the escarpment were built at different times at a different alignment. In addition, the row of stones, f284, below f189 suggests that it was built along the line of an earlier wall, perhaps of the Late Chalcolithic period. Also significant is that the bottom of f189 seen here is considerably higher than that found farther to the east in J1. The tops are more or less at the same elevation. [U812JW.J]

Z0001B11VX04The projected path to the southeast of a now-removed revetment wall whose extant portion, f295 and f41 orginates to northwest. The outer edge of the extant portion of the NE wall abuts a stone escarpment, ^esc1, which protects the base from water damage. To the southeast the escarpment continues. However, here the excavated portion of the revetment wall, although continuous, diverges to the north to follow the alignment of the revetment wall sections excavated in units J1, J3, and J2. At the point of divergence a widening gap between the south face of the wall and the north edge of the stone escarpment begins. Also, at the point that the alignment between the revetment wall and its stone escarpment diverges, the wall construction technique changes. These data provide evidence that only the NW section of the original wall remains and that the SE section either collapsed or was removed to allow a newer section, f189, (which extends west from the eastern staircase in J2, through J5 and J1) to be built.

The purpose would have been to protect the wall by diverting water running down the wall face or along the inner edge of the escarpment away from the base. One stone, f293, is still in place, the others probably having been removed, when the later baquaya escarpment, ^esc2, was built. [VX04JW.J]

It most often arises in the removal of baulks, where clearly the accumulations on one side match the other, and no more objects are needed to establish their stratigraphic sequence. Occasionally, for example in the excavation of locus k100, one layer was deep, uniform, and well understood so removed as one unit, f110. [V610JW.J]

It roughly corresponds to a mirror image of the apron systems in J2 and J3 found to the west of the eastern staircase. Here the stones are not so specifically arranged in rows although they are bounded to the east by a double line of large stones, f186. What we see are isolated patches of large stones, f4, f198, and f199, covered by a large, unexcavated block of soil, f5.

The tops are at about the same elevation, implying that the base of the J5 segment must be 1m higher, stepping up between the units. An E-W line of stones atop the baqaya first escarpment in J1 is aligned with, is the same elevation as, and joins the top row of ^esc1 stones in J5. Where is the baqaya in J5? The best answer is that it stops at the point where it abuts the step, while the stones continue on. [T929JW.J]

^STRC2B11T914This group of features comprise an early Mittani period staircase which leads from the Early Dynastic escarpment to the top of its accompanying revetment wall. It consists of a series of stepped, large stones, f205, f257 and f266, which were placed against the revetment wall, f41. They were founded in part by a north-south line of watermelon-sized stones, f276. To the north, the stepped structure abuts another square stone installation, f194. We have not excavated enough of it to see how deep it is. It seems to be laid atop EDIII accumulations at the elevation where nearby accumulations shift directly to Mittani. Therefore we conclude that this specific label was built early in the Mittani period as they began to adapt the western part of the wall system to replace eastern structures that were being covered by soil accumulations.

^WALL2A35T915v226 [T915JW.J]
^WALL2B11T914This wall system is the Early Dynastic III period revetment wall, which is the prominent visible structure in J5. It is the western extension of J1^wall1. This wall system has two components, identified by their constituents. f189 is nearest to J1 and is constructed of large, uncut stones arranged in a pattern of triangles. f41 is the component that turns toward the north at the end of f189. It is constructed of dressed stones and could be considered to be the more decorative of the two, which are stratigraphically linked by the same stone escarpment, ^esc1. In addition, the baqaya glacis associated with f189 can be seen in section near the wall top. [T914JW.J]
^WALL2C02T929More information can be obtained resolve this issue by removing the southern and eastern parts of the Mittani wall, f3, and its soil pillar. Here we expect to find the intersection of the earlier walls, f41 and f189. This should be done in the next excavation season. [T929JW.J]
^WALL2C03T929The first escarpment, ^esc1, doesn't precisely follow the line of component wall, f189, as it runs from J1 into J5 and begins a gradual turn to the northwest. In fact, there is a large gap (30cm maximum decreasing to zero) between the top stones of the escarpment and the wall's south face. This gap is partially filled by the top stones of the earlier ^wall1 (f284). Since escarpments are built to protect walls from being undermined, the gap is inconsistent with this function. One possible explanation is that the escarpment was built to protect an earlier wall segment which was removed or which collapsed. One candidate is the cut stone component wall, f41, whose southeastern end is obscured by the soil pillar supporting Mittani ^wall3. f41 has the same gradual curve as the escarpment in this region and can be projected southeast to fill the gap. [T929JW.J]
^WALL2C10T914This grouping of features reflects our current understanding of the dates that they were built. Last season we grouped wall, f41; escarpment, f74; and limestone blocks, f99 into specific label ^wall1, which we believed was constructed early, at an uncertain period. Further excavation has revealed that f74 and f99 are from the Mittani period and should not have been associated with the EDIII wall, f41. [T914JW.J]

^WPS1B11T914The first of two water protections systems designed to keep flowing water from damaging the north part of the revetment wall, f41, and related structures during the middle part of the Mittani period. It consisted of an east to west mudbrick wall, f245 to the east (founded on stones f266) and a mudbrick wall, f255 to the west (founded on stones, f277). Behind the dam (to the north) there was a pocket of fist-sized river pebbles which sat atop a greenish layer of soil, f279. There was a channel, f260, which breached the middle of the dam. [T914JW.J]
^WPS1C03T929Although this large, stepped stone structure probably did divert water flowing north to south away from the revetment wall segment, f41, post-excavation analysis reveals another, more important function. From appearance, it looks like a stairway built against the wall which leads to a platform near the top of the wall. However, it has been unclear why it might have been needed. It is now clear from the excavation of the stone escarpment that the bottom of the revetment wall, f41, almost certainly rises rapidly, perhaps in a single jump near the platform, f194. If people needed to get from lower levels to the west up to the floors in front of and west of the new monumental staircase, f20, this would have been the most convenient way to get there. [T929JW.J]
