Daily notes about recovery of elements 2002-09-09 lR Today we continued to remove the ashy pit fill found in this "pillar". This pit fill has a very clear boundary that is marked by a dark gray ashy layer that slopes down making the containment of this feature easy. Below this pit fill f280 is the accumulation that was cut by the pit. This accumulation contains the tannur f180 and the layers associated with it. When scraping the area to make sure that the entire pit fill was excavated a small pit was discovered in the eastern side of the locus. The matrix consisted of a jumble of pottery sherds and may be a continuation of the pit fill f280 or a separate pit that cuts into f283. This eastern side was given a separate feature number f284 which contains this mixture of pit and accumulation that went down approx 30 cm. We assume that this feature is contaminated and decided not to keep the pottery unless something significant was found. We did find one object a long curved piece of clay which is the only element associated with this feature. Once the area was leveled below f284 and f283 we noticed that the matrix again changed- the western side retained a bright orange color while the eastern side a grayish tone. We decided to keep these areas separate and the orangish material remained f283 while the gray was assigned f287. Currently only 20-30 cm remain until the red f190. [Input: -MX12-99.j]
Strategy (projected or implemented) 2002-09-09 lR A buffer of 10cm will remain separating the red f190 with the accumulation above, f283 and f284. [Input: -MX12-99.j]
