Definition 2002-09-08 fAB ^bu [Input: -MX12-99.j]
Description (summary) 2002-09-08 fAB Adult burial in a square cut pit with bricks covering the top. The body was found intact facing North cut into phase 4 red material and is presumably the same phase. [Input: -MX12-99.j]
2002-09-09 lR Human burial with two ceramic jars in place. The bottom of the vessel i98 remains intact and was found above the head to the north of the body. The body i96 rests in the fetal position with the left shoulder in the ground head facing north. The right hand crosses over and lies next to the left shoulder. The second vessel i97 is also a jar but much more complete than i98. This vessel is white in color with a sharp neck and a rope design. The rim of the jar is in pieces and appears to mushroom out. [Input: N304LR2.j]
2002-09-17 aP A burial composed by i96 (human body),i97, i98 (jars) and i101 (pin). The digging of the burial began on M908. It belongs to f277 in k207 which is the fill of the pit f276. The human body is in fetal position with the hands in front of the head. The orientation is towards the north. It belongs to an adult. Near the head we found a red jar i98, without any kind of decorations. It's broken but it's possible to restore since we found all the sherds. Near the feet another jar i97 was found, white in color carinated and with a ribbed decoration at the base of the rim. The aggregate was excavated by Ahmed and Diadin with the dental pick. During the excavation it seemed strange that there was no bowl and in fact today removing the bones a fragmentary part of a bowl emerged which presents traces of bitumen probably for repairing the bowl. In this occasion a pin was also found which was between the teeth of the skeleton. We presume this burial belong to phase 4. [Input: -MX12-99.j]

Daily notes about recovery of elements 2002-09-09 lR Yesterday we found the human remains 40cm below the bricks f276 redefining it as a burial instead of a pit. The skeleton was partially excavated which yielded two ceramic vessels. One vessel is in a poor state of conservation with many pottery sherds scattering the area. The burial was completely excavated this morning and was photographed and drawn. [Input: -MX12-99.j]
