Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-18 lH A line of dressed stones that goes in south-north direcion in the southeastern quadrant of k24. It showed after removing the compact natural accumulation, f12 which covered it before. [Input File: S718lH.j]
2008-7-29 jW This feature, originally identified as a stone installation in k24 and now more appropriately called a staircase in both k24 and k34, descends in at least 6 steps from west to east, towards the palace. At least three accumulations abut it from top to bottom; Midddle Assyrian floor accumulation, f42; Mittani natural floor, f45, and Mittani laminations, f63. When we exposed the top of the last step at elevation 9090 (same elevation as the top stones in the revetment wall, f3, to the southeast), we found that it was abutted by a dense, clean, highly compacted accumulation, f72. Furthermore the stones of the northern border, turned south at this step. A probe with a sheesh to the west of the sixth step, through f72, did not strike any additional step stones. [Input File: S729jw.j]
2008-8-02 jW We sank a sheesh between the stones of the bottom step of staircase, f21. It hit a stone below. As similar actions to the east of the lowest stone did not hit stones below, the lowest step either marks: 1. the top of a wall or 2. A large transitional step between building phases (similar to the large bottom step of the staircase in J2, which marks a transition between Akkadian and Early Dynastic construction.

Recovery/Assignment
strategy (projected or implemented) 2008-7-29 jW mKB, fAB, and jW met on site to discuss the short term strategy to deal with this finding. We decided to photograph the situation as it exists, then excavate floor f45 and laminations, f63 in the north half of k34 to the level of the sixth step of f12 and the top of f72. When this is done, we will meet on S730 to revise our overall strategy. [Input File: S729jw.j]
argument 2008-7-25 jW After locus k24 was excavated to the level of the soil, f52, which surrounded stone installations f14 and f21, we saw better the relationship between them. It seemed as if the line of irregularly cut stones which formed f14 was a northern border of part of a more substantial structure formed of dressed large stones, f21. When we probed to the west of the line of stones which formed f21 with a sheesh, we found a second line of stones about 20cm below it. After removing the accumulation atop this row, we probed and found a third row about 20cm below the second. This row was against the east side of the east baulk of k34. From this evidence we hypothesize that f21 is a staircase, descending to the west, of unknown length and depth. [Input File: S725jW2.j]
