Summary 0000-00-00 pC a4 unify the various brickfall features in A16 that covered all phase 5 structures. It consists of a thick layer of accumulation of bricks and melted briks, with N-S slope, which thickness changes in size [Input: R805PC.j]

Notes on designation 2001-06-26 fAB This aggregate was made to unify the various brickfall features in A16. These could not be merely subsumed under a single feature because stratigraphic continuity across the baulks has not been reached. I realize the need for this however it seems not to perfectly fit the theoretical definition of an aggregate. In my mind an aggregate is a label which describes a complex of features and items which are functionally linked. The brickfall described by a4 is linked, but the link is more of a stratigraphic understanding than a functional complex. [Input: L630TR.j]

Daily notes about recovery of elements 2001-06-25 lR we created trenches in k2, k3, and k4 to determine the depth of the brickfall a4 since it currently covers the entire area. In k2 we have found ashy pockets mixed with the brickfall and could be the end of the brickfall. In the other loci the brickfall continues on. In k1 north section the brickfall measures 170cm in thickness making it a tedious job removing this huge thick brickfall cap in the entire A16 area. The workmen have noticed that the brickfall is changing in size, before they were uncovering small crumbly fragments of bricks but now are coming down on larger components particularly in the east side of k2. [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-07-04 fAB These past 10 days has seen the removal of most of the baulks in A16. We felt that the sections, once drawn, were only showing brickfall, and therefore could be removed in order to show the 20m N section, which would help us link a1 and a5, the house in k5 and the wall with the drain in k4. As things now stand, we have removed most of the brickfall and have pieces of structures in most squares. [Input: L704FAB.j]
Strategy (projected or implemented) 2001-07-08 lR The remaining brickfall will be completely excavated by L709, which allows time for the final photograph of all 5b structures, which will then be removed in order to expose 5a structures. [Input: L708LR.j]
Notes on recovery 2001-06-26 fAB Today we removed the baulks between k1 and k2; k2 and k3; k3 and k4. This removes three sections and gives us a view to the N-S slope of a4, but should provide a very clear photo from the South. By removing these three baulks we will have an open area of excavation that is 19m x 4m. I have left 15cm of each baulk so that the section and loci k1, k2, k3, and k4 continue as we go down in the future. [Input: L630TR.j]
