The great brickfall

     The large brickfall a4 covered all the A16 area It is sloping to the South and to the West It abuts all the structures, so we think they are almost contemporary, and it happened just after a short period after the abandonment of the area. We know the site was highly inhabited few meters to the east. We assign structure a2 and a11 to an earlier moment, because they are covered by the brickfall, while the other structures are "just" abutted. In the upper level it became brickmelt.

     In the brickfall a4 and other accumulations mainly clay figurines (i6, q147.2, q304.1), seal impressions (i24, i17, q826.1) a possible clay rython (i21), andiron (i19), a stone axe (q279.1), a beer strainer (i10) and some metal objects, mainly earrings (q4.2 and q145.1).

Current version

     The brickfall was previously assigned to Phase 5cAAC and was attributed according the AAC strata sequence. In June 2016, C. Chaves Yates revised all strata and phase information to match the updated AAH strata sequence. During this review the brickfall was assigned to a separate phase from the other 5cAAC features and the two groups of features have been seperated into Phase 6m-AAH and Phase 6s-AAH. This page is current as of June 2016.
