definition (typological label) 2003-8-18 jl pit cut [Input File: N906jl.j]

description (summary) 2003-8-19 jl This is the presumed cut of the small pit a38 along the north edge of the locus. [Input File: N819jl.j]
2003-8-25 jl A smooth, curved surface in the north of k30. It appears now to be a small pit cut; however, when we first discovered it, it seemed more like a sloping layer within the soil. As we tried to follow it down, we discovered that it eventually sloped back upwards, creating half of a bowl-like space. Because it is only the south half of the bowl, and not the north half, it suggests that the pit was dug only from the south side, and when they reached an appropriate size and depth, they stopped digging, since no face was created on the north side. Following this interpretation, the smooth face is the result of either the shovels (or other tool) that they used to dig, or some sort of smoothing of the face after the pit had been dug. The extreme southern edge of the pit face had been removed previously as a part of f433 in k29, since we did not notice it as we excavated this feature. [Input File: N825jl.j]
notes on designation and count 2003-8-26 jl This smooth, curving face, presumably a pit cut, originally appeared to be a sloping layer. On account of this, we believed that the soil on above it was part of the f444 accumulation layered on top of it. It wasn't until we discovered the opposite face that we realized that we were probably dealing with a pit cut. The distinction between regular accumulation and pit fill was never visible in the soil, i.e. the two accumulations were indistinguishable (see v265, v266), hence our need to use f447 as a guide.
