description (summary) 2000-7-02 jl This new feature appeared clearly this morning while digging in f316. Brown in color, it was noticably different from the accumulation above it. At first we thought that it might be the same feature as f309-12, but it seems too dirty. It is softer and "greasier" than f316. [Input File: K704jl.j]
notes on designation and count 2000-7-03 jl ed noticed that the surface was not of uniform hardness all across its length. Also, I noticed a number of sherds along the S edge which were not lying flat, but upright, similar to the gullywash in f314. This signifies that the ^a was not regular, certainly not a floor. On the other hand, there are many lying flat, as well. I think that there are too many upright sherds for them to be only anomalies. [Input File: K705jl.j]
2000-7-03 jl In the final analysis, f317 does not exist as a separate feature, and was simply f316 while still moist and recently uncovered. [Input File: K705jl.j]
2000-7-03 jl The brown layer which was so clear yesterday morning seems to have disappeared. I scraped over most of k27 and could not find it clearly. However, once I set the workmen digging again in the W, they found it again immediately, a few centimeters below the surface. I am starting to wonder if f317 actually exists as I described it yesterday, or if it is simply a continuation of f316, which is soft and brown while it is wet, but turns hard and gray when it dries. The workmen originally suggested this, and are convinced of it. gb made a good point, however, that the texture was also different. If the top layer had had a whole year to dry, though (and that was the first pickrun of the season in k27), then the difference would be explained. We have to wait another day to be certain-if the same thing occurs again, then I will be fairly convinced of it. [Input File: K704jl.j]
