Description (summary) 2002-09-26 fAB This red material is what is found when digging wells in the area. It can be found a few meters below the surface and does not contain any cultural material at all. [Input: MX12FAB.j]
2002-12-01 lR Red packing material spread throughout the entire lower A16 area. This packing material is seen below the stone pavement (viewed inside pits), which fills in between stones and baked bricks. Seen best in f216, f250, and f189 cut. The packing has a very distinct look and feel. Retains a blocky structure, purple/reddish color, and very hard clay with calcar inclusions. This material does not turn into individual grains and consists of a solid massive structure. When scraped the packing comes off in blocky chunks and when crushed breaks off into more blocky chunks. This material is ideal for palace packing material due to its hardness, retention of structure when wet, and clay attributes. [Input: N303LR.j]
