Description 2006-8-15vVE f533 is a natural accumulation that lies under f522. There was no clear break visible between f522 and f533 but a gradual change. f533 had less roots running through it, it is a little bit less crumbly and softer than f522. [Input file: Q815VE.J / Q815VE.-J]

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2006-8-15vVE Feature f533 was not excavated today, but was assigned after having closed f522. [Input file: Q815VE.J / Q815VE.-J]
2006-8-16vVE We continued to excavate f533 until we reached the level of the top stones of f532 (the second apron). It should be noted that f532 seems to be on its lowest point here: a little further to the East the top of f532 in the German trench is one row of stones higher. I decided to close this feature to maintain stratigraphic control although there exist no very distinct differences between when it was first uncovered and the bottom of f533 as now defined. Because the second apron, f532, will be dated by the pottery in f533 that is lying directly on top of the steps of f532, such a measure of stratigraphic control seems called for.

Harmonization 2012-8-8jW In a study season (2007-R) the year after f533 was excavated (2006-Q), mO entered the contact association, f533 covers f557. The excavation notes for one (prepared by the supervisor vVE) do not mention the other. In fact vVE noted that both f533 and f557 were the earliest deposits that covered the second apron, f532. The logical conclusion is that f533 and f557 were the same deposit, excavated and recorded at separate locations at separate times. In fact, f557 was assigned to the bottom deposit in the excavated north baulk atop f532. Although the elevation was not recorded, v526 shows that f557 was the southern extension of f533.
