description (summary) 2008-8-31 lC Pavement exposed for about 400 cm north to south and for 100 cm east to west. It is constituted of pottery sherds, mostly body sherds averaging 5-6 cm in size with some sherds until 10 cm. Between these sherds just few show a painted decoration with horizontal bands. Numerous also the pebbles, usually 1-3 cm in length, and bigger pieces of stone, between which some fragments of basalt grinding stone, reused secondarily in the pavement. Numerous also the bones, particularly a skull of a small animal and a horn. It is a well built pavement of type c. better than the pavement f35 that was above it. It seems to abut the mud brick wall f99. [Input File: S831lC2.j]

daily notes 2008-8-16 lR In k4, we removed several centimeters to come towards the bricks of f99, exposing the faces from the west. Immediately, pavement f112 was found, west of f99. This pavement is under f90, forming a much nicer and more compacted surface than f35 pavement that was found in the same area but 10 cm higher in elevation. Lots of animal bones are sitting on this pavement, including a horn, mandibles, several long bones, and a skull of a smaller animal, perhaps a dog. [Input File: S816lr.J]
2008-8-17 lR In k3, we photographed the pavement f112 this morning after consolidating the animal bones with diluted wood glue. We then removed the bones from the pavement to protect them from getting crushed. fAB made a good point yesterday about the animal skull sitting on the pavement. He noticed that the skull was not crushed, a strange thing if the skull was left sitting on a pavement for a long period of time. Another point is the presence of a horn tip, a valuable piece that is often reused thus rare to find complete. We then removed the rest of the eastern baulk between k3 and k4 to connect pavement f73 with f112, which are two different levels showing that f73 covers f112. [Input File: S818lr.j]
