description (summary) 2008-9-02 lC Stone installation constituted of big sized stones, to 60 cm in diameter. It is preserved for about 100 cm south to north and 180 cm east to west. On top of some stones in its western edge there is also a big stone of about 70 cm in length. At the beginning we thought it was a stone pavement, i.e. the continuation of the pavement f93 in k14. But then, because of its irregularity and the substantial difference from the pavement f93 has been labeled as stone installation. Toward east the feature presents a cluster of 7 medium sized stones, very well built together, also with a door socket that could be in situ or reused in a secondary context. It is also possible that these more eastern stones belonging to the pavement f93. [Input File: S902lC.j]

daily notes 2008-8-23 lC Almost at the end of the day we uncovered in k13 a series of stones labeled as f141. At the beginning I thought it could be the continuation of the stone pavement f93 of k14 to the west in k13. But after a better analysis the stone installation f141, it is evident that this pavement differs in size and construction from pavement f93. The stones are bigger and, to be a pavement, it is very irregular and the stones don't create a flat surface. We have labeled this feature a stone installation rather than a pavement due to its irregularity. Moreover the big stone, already uncovered some days ago appears to sit on other stones. It could be a tomb. Very similar tombs were discovered in the Khabur level in area C2 from the German excavation utilizing several large elongated stones for a cover with smaller stones set between forming a cist type tomb.

argument 2008-8-23 lr These stone appear too irregular to form a pavement and contrasts sharply with the cobblestone pavements found in A20. One elongated stone overlays more stones that are partly visible in the small cracks between the stones. The shape almost appears to form a cist type tomb with elongated stones used as a cover however this is all speculative as we only have one human tooth from a1 and portions of a skull in k101 and this season we don't have time to investigate this possibility. These stones may also form a drain or other type of installation. [Input File: S823lC.j]
