Summary 2012-10-7jW Large displaced stone in k101 adjacent to f39 (and possibly a part of it) that sits in late Mittani natural accumulation f30 [Input file: WX07JW1.J / WX07JW1.-J]

Description 2005-8-15rE A very large semi-rectangular block of limestone just south of the south face of monumental wall f11 in the middle of k101. The stone was laying almost vertically, but tilted slightly to the east and resting against a conglomeration of stones and dirt, f39. Although believed to possibly have been the top of a buttress for the wall, further excavation revealed that f39 and f40 did not touch the wall and must have tumbled down the mound and came to rest after abandonment. After f40 was removed, we also noticed a "dent" in the accumulation, f43, upon which it sat, suggesting that the stone came to rest with some force during a time when f43 was very wet.
