||This view shows how f408 has continued to expand underneath the layers of laminations and related material. It also shows well the nature of f411, a relatively dirty accumulation compared to the laminations above it. v229a is a tight shot of the northern half of the locus, showing better f411, including one extremely large sherd. mkb has pointed out that this sherd could not have been accidentally dropped in k27 during the filling process, because of its size. It seems unlikely that it would have escaped notice. Could the different layers (laminations, pottery and stones, black seeds) signify different portions of the ritual, or even different rituals? v229b is a tight view of the southern half of the locus, showing the black seed layer.
