Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2006-8-20vVE The natural deposit of f550 was excavated again today and closed when we had uncovered the third step (from the top) of the second apron f556. This was done for stratigraphic control (intended for the pottery that could date the end of the use of the apron) rather than a change in the deposits. The deposit was continued as f553.

2006-8-26vVE The natural deposit that covers the (probably) lowest step of the second apron in k107 was excavated today. [Input file: Q826VE.J / Q826VE.-J]

Stratigraphic reasons 2012-9-8jW Highest post-Mittani accumulation above the east half of the second apron, f556. [Input file: W908JW2.J / W908JW2.-J]
Typological reasons 2012-9-8jW The ceramics have not yet been analyzed. Some of the items are ubiquitous, but there are two animal figurines and a zoomorphic representation of the side of a fish, all of which indicate that occupation deposits must be adjacent. Since none were found above, we conclude that this layer was deposited at or soon after abandonment. [Input file: W908JW2.J / W908JW2.-J]
Notes on time sequencing 2006-9-4vVE The top part of the second apron ( f556) was covered by the deposit f550, but the presence of the apron would have perhaps been noticable. I assign it to s10, the ultimate abandonment of the function of the temple terrace. Stratigraphically however, I see no absolute proof that these deposits are s10 and not s7, i.e. it is very hard to make that distinction. The main reason to assign it to s10 is that the underlying deposit f553 has been assigned to s11 and the underlying dislocated boulders to s11a. [Input file: Q904VVE.J / Q904VVE.-J]
