Description 2001-8-31lR square tomb and fill [Input file: L831LR.J / L831LR.-J]
2012-3-26lC Tomb with a skeleton lying on the stones of the pavement a12. It is a reused tomb because in one corner was found a pile (not laid out) of bones. The tomb typology is not clear, because it seems to have a pit cut and then brick walls in the side. [Input file: W326LC.J / W326LC.-J]

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2001-8-31lR we continued to excavate the square tomb f206 and made a separate feature for the material around the bones i60, f223. The bones i60 are badly preserved and were found scattered throughout the western end of the tomb. The bones appear to be going under the tomb and we are uncertain if it is an earlier burial or whether the edge of the tomb was misidentified. One human body i54 was found lying above the stones in the western portion along with a very nice khabur carinated gray bowl i58. To the north and south inside the tomb, brick lines were identified and this could be an earlier tomb that f206 was built on top of or that two walls were built at the bottom of the grave and later widened at the top.

2002-9-19lR Today we uncovered the remains of i60, part of a burial, which was left in place from last season due to lack of time and comprehension of the situation. The bones were covered up with nylon then back-filled to protect them from the elements. This season after reviewing the tomb f206 it became visible that the pit face extended further east and therefore we had not finished excavating the fill of the tomb. The bones i60 are localized in the Eastern end of the tomb and are in an extremely fragile condition making removal difficult. When brushed they turn into white powder and we have resorted to scooping up the bones with our trowels and placing them in a box. Last season they were also in a fragile condition but after being exposed for one year they have become even more brittle. They are mixed with animal bones and several jaw fragments were recovered indicating that this is a multi-burial believed to be a re-use since the bones are found in a pile (not laid out) concentrated towards the eastern side. The main burial was found in the west suggesting that someone at a later date re-used this tomb and simply moved the older bones to the side. These bones are on top of some stones and red packing material. [Input file: N303LR.J / N303LR.-J]
2002-9-22fAB we continued to remove the last of this burial including the brick walls in the side. The bricks come down directly on top of the stones from the pavement. [Input file: -MX12-99.J / -MX12-99.-J]
