Description 2006-8-16eI Is 106 because k101 to k105 have already been used in previous years. [Input file: Q918EI4.J / Q918EI4.-J]

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2006-8-16vVE The locus East of k1 was opened as k106, because k100- k105 had already been used in previous seasons. Like k1, part of k106 has been excavated in previous campaigns as a part of J2. The eastern half of k106 had been excavated much deeper as the start of the stepped baulk of J2. The western half had not been excavated yet. f536 is the top soil of this half of k106 and f537 is the natural accumulation underneath f536. [Input file: Q816VE.J / Q816VE.-J]
2006-8-17vVE We continued to excavate the naturally accumulated deposits f537 in k106. This feature was closed after several pick runs because the Northern half of the locus had become softer, f541, and the Southern half had become harder, f542. [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]
2006-8-20vVE After having excavated f542 to get a level surface in this locus we have reached the level at which the eastern half of this locus had been excavated in J2 ( k23). Yesterday we had reached the bottom of f541 and the deposit of f542 seemed to continue in the entire square and this was excavated as f552. The large stone that had already been excavated in J2 was relayed and assigned f554. Five small boulders were relayed and collectively assigned to f555. [Input file: Q820VE.J / Q820VE.-J]
2006-8-22vVE The top soil f536 of the northern baulk of k106 was excavated today and then we proceeded to excavate f537. [Input file: Q822VE.J / Q822VE.-J]
2006-8-23vVE Today we finished removing the North baulk of k106. We did not excavate it to the level of k106 (which is now at the bottom of the deposits that cover the revetment wall) but to the level of k107 instead. The present state of k107 gives us a view of how the second apron must have looked like when its sacral use had been given up. [Input file: Q823VE.J / Q823VE.-J]
2006-8-28vVE We started to excavate f552 again after having removed f554 and f555.1-4. [Input file: Q828VE1.J / Q828VE1.-J]
2006-8-29vVE At first the entire surface of k106 was excavated consisted of the hard compact layer of naturally compacted surfaces f552. Then we proceeded to excavate f552 only in the Northern half of k106 in order to expose the face of the top of the revetment wall. f552 was closed when we reached the softer accumulation f573. [Input file: Q829VE3.J / Q829VE3.-J]
2006-8-30vVE In k106 we continued to go down in the northern half until we had cleared the face of the top of the revetment wall f569. Then we started to excavate also the Southern half of k106. [Input file: Q830VE1.J / Q830VE1.-J]
2006-8-31vVE The stones that had been partially uncovered yesterday in the Northern half of k1 were further uncovered by excavating the Southern half of k106 to the same level. Several more large boulders were uncovered and relayed: f584, f586, f587, f588 and f589. These boulders seem to lie on the same level as the ash deposit of f577. The small boulder f580 was removed. We cleaned the faces of the stones of the top of the revetment wall. It was clear that some of these boulders are not resting directly on the other stones of the revetment wall, but were instead resting on deposits. This proves the hypothesis that the top of the revetment wall was a younger addition. [Input file: Q831VE.J / Q831VE.-J]
