text description of view 2008-9-22 jW This final photograph documents the timing of the late modification to the northern part of the Mittani revetment wall system. In an attempt to identify the strata associated with this, we excavate a narrow trench to the east of the east face of the wall. Five separate layers were identified as features (f86 to f90) running from the top of the capstones (f192) of the wall down to the glacis, f90. The top three layers contained Mittani sherds. The floor accumulation, f89, above the glacis contained a mixture of sherds from Late Chalcolithic, through Early Dynastic to Mittani. We interpret this to mean that the revetment wall addition, f3, was laid against a much earlier glacis, possibly associated with wall f41 (not shown). On the other hand, the capstones, f192, were laid against the MIttani accumulations, as were the stones of f46 to the north. The line of stones, f19, was laid atop soil which covered f192 and f46, indicating that they were a very late addition, likely in the time of non-sacral use, the Middle Assyrian period.
