Definition 2002-09-03 lR ^hb [Input: -MX12-99.j]
Description (summary) 2002-09-03 lR The skeleton which belongs to a baby (the age possibly 1 or 2 years) was in fetal position with its orientation towards the North. The funerary set was simply composed of a small jar devoid or other items. The jar laid close to the head. Given the nature of the burial's deposition in the earth without any other features suggests that it is a simple kind of burial. [Input: -MX12-99.j]
2002-09-03 lR human remains of burial a18 next to i83 jar [Input: -MX12-99.j]
2002-09-07 MISSING The body rests in fetal position facing north with the left side of the body in the ground. The burial contained an over fired jar i83 with rope like incisions around the neck. [Input: M907LR.j]
2004-08-24 MISSING Infant, estimated age at 2-3.5 years based on the diaphyseal length of the ulna (106mm)using methods devised by Hoppa (1992) and by deciduous teeth formation of the maxillary canine (AC stage); Dm2 (at Coc stage) using methods devised by Moorrees, Fanning, and Hunt (1963). The skeleton is in poor condition and shows no signs of epiphyseal fusion or ossification. The skull was excavated and removed prior to the removal of the body due its location near the edge of the excavated area. The skull was brought to the lab three years ago in a large block of soil. Unfortunately it was not possible to preserve the skull due to the hardness of the soil around it and the fragile state of the bones. The soil was separated using a wooden stick, which exposed four small beads next to the hyoid bone and the axis cervical vertebra. Photographs were taken of the beads in the soil with the hyoid in place. The items were washed, labeled, and photographed. Refer to items i176, i177, i178, i179 for the description of these beads.

Daily notes about recovery of elements 2002-09-17 aP Today we removed the skeleton from f182 in k108; excavated by Miser and ap. Yesterday it was drawn and photographed with the jar i84 in place, today it was photographed without it. [Input: M917AP.j]
Procedures 2002-09-17 aP The skeleton was carefully excavated with the dental pick to avoid damage to the bones, which already showed shattering, and damage particularly at the ribs. The skull suffered the most, probably damages during last years excavation or more likely, the large Khabur pit cut a17 or a13. After articulating each bone, it was finally removed once photography and drafting had taken place, wrapped in linen and put in a cardboard box. [Input: M917AP.j]
Notes on recovery 2002-09-07 MISSING The skull was removed three days earlier since it was cut by the previous year (or cut by the large pit a17, a13) and could not support itself on the pedastalled area. [Input: M907LR.j]
