Description 2006-8-17vVE Feature f541 lies under the natural accumulation f537 and possibly cuts the harder natural accumulation f542 in k106. It is a very slightly reddish light brown deposit. It is very similar to f542 except that it is much softer. [Input file: Q817VE.J / Q817VE.-J]
2006-8-19vVE Although it is still unclear whether or not f541 was a shallow pit or not, it is now clear that it overlies part of f542 perhaps even cutting it as a shallow pit. It could also have been a small gully caused by rainwater. In this deposit several large stones were found. [Input file: Q819VE1.J / Q819VE1.-J]

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2006-8-17vVE Excavation of f541 was started today after we had removed the overlying deposit of f537. [Input file: Q817VE.J / Q817VE.-J]
2006-8-19vVE We continued to excavate f541 and after one pick run we could close it because we had reached its bottom. Under f541 we saw the same hard deposit as in f542 and this means that f541 overlies f542 and was perhaps even cut into it. [Input file: Q819VE1.J / Q819VE1.-J]
2006-8-23vVE The remaining deposits of f541 in the Northern baulk of k106 were excavated today, except for the last easternmost meter which will be excavated as part of the eastern baulk of k107. This is done because we need to draw the section of the eastern side of eastern baulk of k107. [Input file: Q823VE.J / Q823VE.-J]

Stratigraphic reasons 2012-9-8jW Immediate post-Mittani natural accumulation which is said to cut accumulation f542, [Input file: W908JW1.J / W908JW1.-J]
Typological reasons 2012-9-8jW Ceramics not yet fully analyzed. The few items recovered are ubiquitous. [Input file: W908JW1.J / W908JW1.-J]
Other reasons 2012-9-8jW It probably is fill of a pit cut into f542. [Input file: W908JW1.J / W908JW1.-J]
Notes on time sequencing 2006-9-4vVE The underlying deposit f552 can be positively assigned to s11 and therefore these deposits are assigned to s10. They seem to be a continuation of f550. The stones that are embedded in s542 must then also belong to s10. [Input file: Q904VVE.J / Q904VVE.-J]
