Daily notes about recovery of elements 2002-09-07 MISSING Last season we saw lines that appeared to form a wall of some sort; f249, in this area. We began by removing 10cm from the area to see if we could expose the face of the wall. The wall shows no clear brick faces but is harder than the material around it making it a possible "pize" wall or a simple mud wall. The entire surface that was excavated was leveled, scraped, and cleaned. [Input: M907LR.j]
2002-09-09 lR The wall f249 was removed today since we could not find any clear faces and appeared to be constructed of mud. It was relayed in then removed. [Input: -MX12-99.j]
2002-09-19 lR Yesterday 10cm of a reddish layer was removed throughout the entire locus. While removing this layer, several large pottery pieces were uncovered immediately north of a16 burial from last season. These ceramic pieces presumably come from one vessel, likely a pot smash i140 which contains no rim nor base and consists of large thick fragments of pottery lying with the outside face lying down exposing the inside of the vessel. To the east of the pot smash i140 a burning area f317 was noticed by fAB. The area shows bright red bricks, gray ash, black ash, and light gray bricky material mixed together. The colors are quite vivid and sharp when scraped with the trowel but lose their brightness when brushed. This burnt area appears localized only within k202 crossing into k203 and we plan to leave this feature in the case that this is a destruction layer and covers the entire area above the stones. The stone pavement a12 found in k109 shows several stones with black stains on them (the stones to the far west) and looks like bitumen. It is interesting to note that the burnt area f317 lies next to these stones and may be the reason why they are darkened. We will see if this burnt layer continues to the stone pavement. [Input: M919LR.j]
2002-09-22 lR The stones of the pavement a12 stop abruptly before we anticipated. We expected the stones to continue until the end of our west section primarily because the trench k109 yielded stones throughout the area. The stones end roughly at the same point but are not regular in line suggesting that they were removed at a later date. Next season we plan to excavate the material abutting the stone pavement to the east, which may possibly yield stones at a lower level like the two stones under f206. [Input: N303LR.j]
Strategy (projected or implemented) 2002-09-09 lR tomorrow we plan to scrape the area to see if we see any traces of the wall f249 then we will begin to go down to the red, which is higher in this area seen in the north. [Input: N304LR2.j]
