Description 2005-8-16rE A very hard, ashy accumlation in the south half of k101. It abuts the south face of the temple mound wall, f11, and extends to the southern, eastern, and western limits of the locus, k12. There are some small charcoal inclusions. Because it seals the accumulations below, it has great promise of preserving the stratigraphy of the early and middle phases of the wall's construction and use. However, it is doubtful that we will be able to excavate here in the time remaining in this season, and it marks a good stopping point for MZ18. [Input file: Q302JW1.J / Q302JW1.-J]

H99.NDepostn 2005-8-24jW One possibility is that it represents the residue from the destruction of one of the earlier phases of the BA temple which washed down the mound, over the wall and was deposited. We hypothsize that this surface was in place and visible when the monumental staircase and apron were built during the temple's Mitanni phase. [Input file: P824JW2.J / P824JW2.-J]

Stratigraphic reasons 2005-8-22gM Elevation about the same as equivalent Mittani surfaces in adjacent units. [Input file: P822GM.J / P822GM.-J]
2012-10-7jW Natural accumulation below accumulation f30. [Input file: WX07JW.J / WX07JW.-J]
Typological reasons 2012-10-7jW No ceramics or items recovered. [Input file: WX07JW.J / WX07JW.-J]
Other reasons 2005-8-22gM Highest surface south of f11 wall that may be the result of Mittani occupation. Stop point for excavations in k11/ k101 for season MZ18. [Input file: P822GM.J / P822GM.-J]
Notes on time sequencing 2005-8-24jW Compared elevations of this hard-surfaced ashy feature, which abuts the south side of wall, f11, to the elevation of a similar feature in J1. The elevation of f43 is 8982, while the elevation of the J1 feature is 8971. We conclude that the surfaces are part of a continuous deposit extending along the entire region south of the S face of the monumental wall f11. [Input file: P824JW2.J / P824JW2.-J]
