|generic fnc. (1st degree of specificity)
||The nature of the paving is uncertain. (1) A walking pavement seems unlikely because it appears that both walls A12f45 and A12f16 reach their lowest level at a common elevation which coincides with the elevation of the paving (this is based on a probing with a metal stake below the level of the exposed stone courses: such probing has indicated that there are no more stones)/ If we are at the bottom of the foundations, one can hardly consider this a pavement linked with them. (2) In terms of absolute elevation, a preliminary test indicates that we are about 70 cms below the first floors of AK: while it is not inconceivable that the outside flloor is lower thanb the inside one, it does not in and of itself seems plausible. (3) The paving could be a link anong the two foundations: but why is it so level as to look exactly like a paving, and what is its function since it does not tie the foundations by underlying them? (4) The paving could also be an earlier floor surface: but why does it match so exactly the base of the stone foundations?
