Summary 2007-07-11 cJC Mudbrick wall 1.5 bricks thick and reaching a height of 21 brick courses. It is oriented EW with a doorway (see f70) identified on its north face. It abuts walls f93 and f80 to form a8. It bonds with f113 and f96 to form a10. [Input: R711CJC.j]

Description (summary) 2001-07-07 lR Mudbrick wall running east to west, 60 cm thick (one brick and a half). The wall is constructed with uniform colored bricks clearly distinguishable from the gray mortar. The wall appears to continue going down with the top elevation at 9178. [Input: L707LR.j]
2001-08-01 lR this is a mud brick wall running East to West composed of reddish pink bricks averaging 37cm in length and 10cm in thickness with light gray mortar fill. The width of the wall is one whole brick and a half with a current height of 21 brick courses. It is possible that a second, earlier wall is underneath this wall slightly shorter in length, but it is unclear. The wall shows two areas of collapse and stress; one in the western end where the bricks appear to be lesser in length at the bottom (15-20 cm) causing the top bricks from the wall to shift down from the pressure, and the second, in the Northeast where the bricks collapsed from the doorway. The Northeast area is unclear for this reason. This wall is part of a10. [Input: L816LR.j]

Daily notes about recovery of elements 2001-06-20 fAB In k4 we seem to have found a wall f52, but it is not linked to anything we have found yet, so we continue to work around it. [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-06-25 lR While looking at this wall we have defined the bricks on the north surface and noticed that there are not bricks in the middle, creating a niche. We have identified a possible drain that runs along the north side of the wall and presume that the niche is an outlet for the water to run through the wall. [Input: L630TR.j]
Strategy (projected or implemented) 2001-07-08 lR we plan on removing all phase 5b structures but plan on leaving f52 since the base of the wall is actually a 5a construction that was re-used in 5b. The basis for this argument as proposed by fab is that the Western face of the wall ends but then is continued at a lower elevation but is indented several centimeters to the East suggesting that the wall below is earlier and could belong to 5a. Bricks found on the North side of f52 suggest that it is a 5a cross wall running North to South. [Input: L708LR.j]
