Description 2001-8-27lR Small pit and fill located in the eastern end of k110 towards the middle [Input file: M928LR2.J / M928LR2.-J]

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2001-9-2lR we have scraped and cleaned the area in order to identify any features within k110 especially pits. We have come down in the entire area on a compact reddish brown material and on the north area we were exposing an ashy thin layer. All the pits f216 and f217 have been excavated. [Input file: L903LR.J / L903LR.-J]
2002-9-7lR the small section inside this pit was excavated today. Last season we assigned f216 to the pit fill until the stones below then it was given f220 since it was ashy. This season we kept f216 for the small section, which was primarily f220 (the material below f216). This pit was cleaned today with plans to remove all traces of fill and photograph the stones, packing below the stones, and the baked bricks below. To date, this pit is the deepest we have gone in A16. It cuts throughout the stone pavement and exposes a thick red chunky packing below followed by baked bricks. The pit cuts through the bricks and below is a reddish material that may be more packing or a possible drain collector. This theory of a drain collector below the stone pavement was suggested last season with the baked bricks alluding to the use of water. Taking into consideration the slope of the courtyard, it is possible that a "collector" of a sort lies below the stones and is used to hold used water then drain out through another channel.

2002-9-8lR This pit was excavated primarily in MZ14 and today we cleaned the area around the surface to remove any traces of the fill. Currently the pit is 130 cm deep and appears to be the end of the pit since the soil has changed from a soft gray to brown orange color. There are also several white cobbles at the bottom.

2002-9-26lR We decided to continue excavating in this pit after reviewing the deeper pit f250. Last season the matrix slowly changed from gray material to a reddish color with a few cobbles in view. This marked the interface between end of pit and the material below. Yesterday a few cm of this material was removed to see if it was the end of the pit and it resulted in the cobbles continuing through the pit wall marking it clearly non-pit. Several arguments were proposed including the possibility of a septic tank like installation below the stone pavement. The baked brick f194 would be the covering for this installation. f216 would then be a cut into this installation and after a brief meeting with gB we decided to remove the cobbles to see if drain-like material begins to emerge. The cobbles were removed from the bottom and a brown matrix with charcoal inclusions was found below the layer of cobbles. The situation remains unclear. [Input file: M926LR.J / M926LR.-J]
Strategy 2002-9-7lR We plan to excavate this pit once we arrive to the level of the stone pavement a12. [Input file: M907LR.J / M907LR.-J]
