Summary 2007-07-16 sG Series of channels and holes under and to the north of wall f52 in locus k4. These were originally interpreted as a drain installation, but after excavating the area it became apparent that these holes and channels were in fact animal holes. The original interpretation was then abandoned. [Input: R716SG.j]

Description (summary) 2001-06-17 fAB drainage system with walls [Input: L724LR.j]
2001-06-26 fAB A series of channels which seem to build a drain complex that is under and to the North of the wall f52. [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-08-18 lR Initially we found a series of holes in the same level along f52 and defined it as a drainage system. We assigned f66 to the drain hole running east to west along the north side of f52 based on a round hole along the west side of the wall and the one half brick layer form a ledge north of f52. f68 was assigned to the drain running north south that runs through f70. These features were assigned on L625 and after excavating the area it is evident that no drainage system exists and perhaps the holes that were found are caused by rodents or other small animals and misidentified as drains.

Daily notes about recovery of elements 2001-06-25 lR A possible drain has been identified running alongside the wall f52 on the North side. We defined the bricks, which are a pinkish color and found on the south side a little niche where there are no bricks. We are presuming that this niche is an outlet area for the drain to pass through the wall. On the other side we also defined the bricks but they end about one meter from the East baulk. It is possible that the bricks collapsed and caused a jumble on the North side. [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-06-26 lR We have labeled the niche found in wall f52 as f69, and currently are associating it with a drainage system a5. [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-07-04 fAB In k4 we have the drain and wall, a5, which seem to be among the latest structures in A16 since the brickfall a4 abuts it but does not cover it. [Input: L704FAB.j]
Notes on recovery 0000-00-00 pC f69, f68, f67, f66,f52, f60, f70, i19 were considered elements whithin a5. Since it is not a drainage system all this features do not belong to a drain. [Input: R805PC.j]

Time Sequencing

Roster Date Author Record
Notes on time sequencing 2001-06-26 fAB Is this later or earlier than a4? This should be clear after determining if there is a wall in baulk k3E. [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-07-04 fAB a1 is contemporary with a5 and a3, since all abut but are not covered by brickfall. Questions arise when we look at the differences in elevation: a5 is considerably higher than a1 and a3. This seems to indicate a terracing, which we would expect to result from extended building in the phase of a2. Brick size plays a role in our understanding of the strata sequence: a1, a3, a4 and a5 are all built with bricks that are 10cm in thickness [Input: L704FAB.j]
