Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-13 lR Accumulation in the western third of the locus, above emerging brick faces and possible floor This feature was assigned abandonment accumulation due to the eroded brick surfaces that are beginning to emerge. The matrix is more compact than the topsoil with fragments of bricky material present. [Input File: S713lr.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-7-19 lR finished excavating this feature today as the soil underneath became softer and ashy. A new feature was assigned, f24 for the ashy accumulation. [Input File: S719lr.j]
2008-7-16 lR Removed 10cms from the northwest corner in order to understand f11. One assumption is that f11 could possibly be a stone wall or a modern burial with the stones used as markers for the grave however no pit cut was noted. Smaller stones were also found under the larger stones. One strategy is to continue excavating down to see if the stones continue. [Input File: S716lr.J]
2008-7-17 lR continued to remove 5cms from this feature today and came down on more sherds laying flat. The area was cleaned and drawn by eE. The area to the east of the sherds was excavated further, 10cms. No difference in matrix was noted. [Input File: S718lr.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-13 lR Accumulation below topsoil, located in the eastern half of the locus. This material is darker in color, softer, and contrasts sharply with the compact brick material located to the west (f5). This feature is presumably accumulation that built-up naturally. [Input File: S713lr.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-7-13 lR Assigned this feature today but did not excavate it, tomorrow we plan to excavate this feature with the big pick. [Input File: S713lr.j]
2008-7-14 lR removed 5 cms from the NE corner of the locus to level the area. This feature is a mixture of topsoil and abandonment accumulation below showing small fragments of charcoal, bricks, and exhibits both hard and soft spots throughout the locus. Similar features were noted throughout all the loci in A20. One question is the relationship between the bricky material to the west, f5 where the stones are emerging and this accumulation. Tomorrow we plan to remove 10 cms to see if f5 is underneath. In k13 (loci immediately to the east), a compact surface is present but at a much deeper elevation. [Input File: S714lr.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-27 lR Hard light pink brick melt, uniform in color and texture with no inclusions visible such as stones or large sherds found in the entire locus. f7 is made of fine clay, likely formed from eroded mud brick melted by rain and baked in the sun. When we excavated this feature, the layer resulted in only being 7-10 cm in thickness. f7 was subsumed under f27, a feature created to term the entire brickmelt that was found in all five loci. [Input File: S727lr4.j]
2008-8-11 lR A compact layer originally defined as brickmelt since the appearance resembled clay that had been melted from the rain, then baked by the sun forming a crust. We later redefined this feature after excavating it as the ancient tell surface at abandonment, with the compaction resulting from walking on the surface and natural rain and sun exposure. f27 was created to subsume all the compact brickmelt layers in A20 for ease in reference although the discrete feature numbers are still present according to loci. f7 was found in the entire locus. [Input File: S811lr5.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-7-14 lR fully exposed this feature today resulting in no clear brick surfaces however the matrix is compact like brick found 38-40 cms below the Tell surface; similar to melted brick layers seen in A16 and A18. [Input File: S714lr.j]

daily notes 2008-7-14 lR Yesterday several stones surfaced after removing the topsoil layer in k12. These stones are clustered together in the NW corner of the locus. We photographed the entire locus today but expect to delineate these stones further tomorrow to see if the stones continue to go down. The stones are sitting in f5. [Input File: S714lr.j]
2008-7-16 lR Excavated 10cms from f5 to see if any pit cuts were visible. No cuts were present but the stones continue to go down, with smaller stones found under the larger stones. [Input File: S716lr.J]
2008-7-17 lR excavated 5cms around the stones and to the south with no difference in matrix from the material around the stones. This feature was drawn today by eE and left pedastooled. [Input File: S718lr.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-16 lR Similar to f5 in k12, this feature is found in the western half of k2, covering several stone installations from a later occupation phase. [Input File: S811lr5.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-7-16 lR Excavated 15 cms down to see if any bricks or pit cuts were present using the small pick and trowel. In the northwest corner several gray bricks were found, it appears that they are broken. There bricks were left in place. [Input File: S716lr.J]
2008-7-17 lR removed 10cms today with the matrix shifting from light gray and compact to softer dark gray with patches of black. In the western corner, harder compact material surfaced with pebble and sherd inclusions. It appears similar in compaction as f7 (the compact layer in all four loci) but with too many inclusions. A new feature was assigned, f22. [Input File: S718lr.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-8-11 lR A compact layer originally defined as brickmelt since the appearance resembled clay that had been melted from the rain, then baked by the sun forming a crust. We later redefined this feature after excavating it as the ancient tell surface at abandonment, with the compaction resulting from walking on the surface and natural rain and sun exposure. f27 was created to subsume all the compact brickmelt layers in A20 for ease in reference an event although the discrete feature numbers are still present according to loci. f16 was only found in the northeast corner runs to the south for 200 cm with ash f22 abuting f16 in the south and west.

daily notes 2008-7-15 lR Found this layer under f6 today, by the end of the day the feature was fully exposed in the eastern half of the locus showing a gradual sloping down to the south. [Input File: S715lr.J]
2008-7-16 lR The southern area of this feature is beginning to show soft ashy soil mixed with more compact bricky material. Several small tannur pieces were found with similar matrix present to the south in k2. The relationship between f18 and this ashy material is unclear. In some places f18 was found below, sloping down but then f18 disappears. [Input File: S716lr.J]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-8-11 lR Multiple accumulations of deep ash ranging in shades of gray pink to dark black sloping into k2 from presumably the northwest (slope visible in section). This ash was found in the entire locus, except for a small patch of f16 then a larger patch of f98 in the northeast corner. The ash is also present in the western half of k12 as well as in A18. In A18, a deep vertical section shows the ash extending down several meters. In k2, we stopped excavating the ash at the same elevation as A18, an arbitrary stopping point. [Input File: S811lr6.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-8-04 lR removed approximately 10 cm from the southern end of k2, all ash with several areas containing laminations, patches of brown soil alternating with darker stains of charcoal. The presence of laminations suggests that the ash was not dumped at one time but over a period of time enough for water to pool forming laminations. The ash continues to be clean, meaning few inclusions of pottery and animal bones, quite different from f60 and f62. [Input File: S804.J]
2008-8-05 lC Today we continued to excavate the ashy layer f22, uncovering in part a harder and compact layer brown in color. Almost at the and of the morning we found a large amount of small bones, according to lR probably pertinent to a bird or to a rodent, and we used a sifter to take all the small bones. [Input File: S805lC.j]
2008-8-09 lR On S807 we reached the elevation of A18's pebble and sherd pavement in k12 and decided to stop excavating the ash. We then moved into k2, excavated f22 down 15 cm to reach the same elevation as k12 and A18. By the end of the day, this was achieved. Some small patches remain in the southeast corner that will be removed tomorrow. [Input File: S809lr.j]

Function
notes on function 2008-8-11 lR The depth of this ash and lack of inclusions (clean ash) suggests this accumulation is the result of a specific activity requiring firing. The presence of several colors in layers with laminations present also suggests that the ash was not accumulated in one moment but over several moments enough to leave differences in colors and water to pool forming laminations.

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-19 lR Pottery sherds lying flat on f5, concentrated in the southwest corner spreading north. These sherds appear contemporary with f11 stones as they are the same elevation and resting on f5. These sherds possibly form the natural surface of the ancient Tell. Associated with these sherds, the matrix to the north (f5) shows tannur fragments embedded in the soil. The sherds were removed today and given to mKB for analysis to see if these date to the middle Assyrian period. [Input File: S719lr.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-8-11 lR Multiple accumulations of deep ash ranging in shades of gray pink to dark black sloping into k12 from presumably the northwest (slope visible in section). This ash was found in the western half of the locus abutting a large amorphous bricky mass in the east and the ash continues to slop down to the south, into k2. In A18, a deep vertical section shows the ash extending down several meters. In k12, we stopped excavating the ash at the same elevation as A18, an arbitrary stopping point as it continues to go down. [Input File: S811lr6.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-7-28 lR A total of 15 cm was removed from the entire southeast corner then expanded to the north to level out the rest of the feature. While excavating a tannur fragment was found, q94.1, with one surface complete and the other abraded. The tannur piece was floating in the ash without any floor surface visible. The ash alternated from some areas showing black stains while some areas are slightly more compact and brown. f52 continues to go down but stopped excavating this feature after breakfast due to insufficient tents for shade. Tomorrow we will continue to excavate this feature. [Input File: S728lr.j]
2008-7-29 lR The ashy accumulation in the west, f24 was also excavated today, removing approximately 15 cm from the entire feature. It still continues to go down, which is expected as the north section of A18 shows clearly thick ash accumulations. [Input File: S729lr.j]
2008-8-06 lR Excavated the ashy accumulation f24 today, removing 10 cm from the entire western half of the locus. The area began to show alternating layers of pink, gray, and darker ash which was cleaned then covered for photographs tomorrow. [Input File: S806lr.j]
2008-8-07 lR Continued to excavate this feature today, removing 15 cm of ash that alternated between pink and gray layers. The wall f64 continues to do down with bricks jutting out in section. [Input File: S809lr.j]
2008-8-14 lR In k12, we continued to remove the ash f24 in the hope that a pavement surfaces to find the depth of f52 and f64 wall. By the end of the day, a brown slightly compact layer was found under the ash f24, labeled f118. This layer still contains lots of charcoal and ash embedded but maybe the interface between a floor surface and the ash f24. [Input File: S816lr.J]
2008-8-18 lR continued to remove 5 cm from f82 then scraped the ash f24 to expose f118 [Input File: S818lr.j]
2008-8-25 lC In the morning we drew the west section of k12, because it is shows nice multi-layer accumulations of ash from f24, and then we took photographs. [Input File: S825lC.j]

Function
notes on function 2008-8-11 lR The depth of this ash and lack of inclusions (clean ash) suggests this accumulation is the result of a specific activity requiring firing. The presence of several colors in layers with laminations present also suggests that the ash was not accumulated in one moment but over several moments enough to leave differences in colors and water to pool forming laminations.

notes on labeling 2008-8-11 lR Volumetric localization for q-lots were given label f27 but should have been labeled with their discrete feature numbers thus q46, q62, q63 are from k3; q47, q76, q79, from k13, q61 from k14, and q83, q156 from k12. [Input File: S811lr6.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-21 lC Brick melt found in five loci (k3, k13, k2, k12, k14), very compact in hardness, light brown (yellow hue) in color with few inclusions. No discrete components visible, with the layer uniform hard clay. This layer slopes down towards the east, disappearing by the eastern end of k14 and subsumes the other brick melt features assigned in each locus. [Input File: S721lr2.j]
2008-8-11 lR Originally defined as brickmelt from presumably Mittani structures that collapsed in the vicinity, this feature is now defined as the natural Tell surface at abandonment. f27 is used to refer to the same compact layer but discretely refers to f18 in the eastern half of k12, f16 in the eastern half of k2, f17 in k3, f7 in k13, and f20 in the western half of k14.

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-21 lR A layer consisting of larger brickfall (large fragments of broken bricks) mixed with ash. To the south, the brickfall appears more organized with possibly another wall under f29. In the north, this feature turns ashier around the tannur f42. f29 is concentrated in the western half of the locus starting from m4702 extending north 400 cm and 150 cm east.

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-28 lR A thick accumulation of brick fall from presumably a collapse of structures nearby. Large broken bricks are uniformly found within a softer matrix. Approximately 25 cm thick, this feature transitions into compact bricky mass with larger brick components present, some complete bricks forming f41, wall. The brickfall also covered f59, a hearth sitting on bricks from f41. [Input File: S728lr.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-7-28 lR We continued to excavate this feature today, removing 10 cm, thinking that we found the bottom since in the east a nice ash level was found, presumably the end of brickfall. The layer however was only localized in the east, with the matrix towards the east resembling a combination of brick melt and brick fall. The soil is hard, bricky; some lines are present but don't form any structures or pattern. Tomorrow, the area will be scraped and cleaned to see if any more bricks surface. If not, we should consider changing the feature to define it as more compact than the brickfall above. [Input File: S728lr.j]
2008-8-25 lC We finished removing part of f30, to find a compact surface, visible in section, and to find more bricks of the wall f41. [Input File: S825lC.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-28 lR Initially defined as interface layer between brickfall and ash consisting of broken bricks within an ashy soft fill. We expected to only have a few centimeters of this layer then reach ash but instead a tannur f42 and a cobblestone pavement f50 was found resulting in keeping this feature as the matrix above the pavement and around the broken bricks to the south. [Input File: S728lr.j]
2008-7-21 lR A compact ashy surface where the sherd pavement f35 is embedded in. Underneath is f90. [Input File: S811lr6.j]

2008-8-11 lR A cluster of 28 stones ranging in size concentrated south in k14. The eastern border of f34 forms a line while the western border is irregular in shape. Two pavements are associated with f34, sherd pavement f33, a later pavement that overlays the stones covering a cluster in the north while f48 appears to have been constructed at the same time as f34 for some of the stones sit on f48 with sherds also overlaying. Another cluster of cobblestones were found in the west, f61, perhaps associated with these stones. The stones are the typical white limestone found at Mozan. [Input File: S811lr6.j]

Recovery/Assignment

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-8-09 lR A rough pavement constructed with pottery sherds some lying flat while most are at an irregular angle concentrated within the eastern area of k3, alongside the east section continuing under the baulk into k4 (see f73 and f72). The pavement contained animal bones embedded with multiple layers of the pavement visible. One suggestion, especially viewing the pavement in k4 is that this was either an unintentional pavement created from a walking surface that embedded loose sherds into the soil or that this is an ancient wadi with sherds washed in. The presence of a channel, f83 drain to the immediate northwest of f35 suggests that water was present and diverted. In k4, the pavement is at a higher elevation, sloping down into k3.

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-8-09 lR Ashy accumulation found in the middle of the locus, running south to north. This ash appears to be the same accumulation as f22 in k2 that spreads east into k3. At some point bricks were added, f68 (f29) over the ash south of the tannur f42 to perhaps contain the ash to the west. f36 likely is under f68, and at the moment we have excavated f31 and f35 finding the ash f36 under these features continuing east. [Input File: S811lr6.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-7-23 lR The ash is visible to the west of pavement f35 and unclear if the ash goes below the pavement or abuts it. Another pavement was found today, connecting the cobblestones found yesterday in f36 eastern corner to the western side of k3 and associating f42 tannur, and i11 to a surface sitting on the ash. [Input File: S723lr.j]
2008-8-07 lR This ash appears to abut f35 pavement in the north section of A18. We started to excavate the ash in the area north of the tannur f42 and proceeded south. [Input File: S809lr.j]

notes on labeling 2008-8-09 lR f86 is included under this label early in the season when the a distinction between f40 and f86 could not be established. As a result some of the early templates label f86 as f40. [Input File: S811lr6.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-8-09 lR In the western part of k15, adjacent to the west section, several brick faces emerged, arranged vertically that continued into the western baulk. Within a few days more bricks emerged in the northeast corner, horizontal and different from the vertical bricks but since no definition could be concluded, both these sets of bricks were labeled f40. After we removed the west section of k15, or the east section of k14, the vertical bricks continued under the section and found in k14, labeled as f56. The horizontal bricks found earlier turned into a wall, oriented north to south and we relabeled these bricks as f86. f40 with f56 are included under aggregate 2 (a2) forming a box like structure with multiple courses of vertical bricks, obliquely set, with thick mortar between the bricks. The first course was eroded and removed early in the season so it's difficult to reconstruct the original shape of this structure; it appears that the bricks were set in a manner that created a domed outer shape with a square base. The top bricks were cut back in section to understand how it was constructed with more bricks found below, vertically set and identical to the top course. On the western end, a wall constructed of thin vertical bricks obliquely set abuts a2, given the similarities in construction we are assuming that this wall is associated with a2. The western border also shows some of the bricks collapsed and these bricks were left articulated. It is unclear how deep this structure is, at the moment it appears to be three courses in construction utilizing bricks measuring 36 x 36 x 10 cm. [Input File: S811lr6.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-7-23 lR This feature was assigned to the cluster of emerging bricks in the western half of the locus. It is unclear if this is a wall or tomb. [Input File: S723lr.j]
2008-8-04 lR Articulated this feature today after the east baulk of k14 was removed. This appears to be a several courses of vertical bricks forming a rectangular shape located between k14 and k15. The eastern portion was cut back to see if a section could be made, exposing the brick faces but only a few faces emerged. The sides were also defined. This is either a wall, using vertical bricks however since it doesn't continue in k14 or k15; it seems strange to be a wall. Another possibility is a grave with several cases at Mozan and other areas showing vertical bricks used in tomb construction. Lastly, this could also simply be a brick pile used for construction that was left in place after abandonment. [Input File: S804.J]
2008-8-05 lR Met with gB today to discuss the strategy for excavating this structure. He suggested to cut several sections to understand the size of the bricks, orientation, and construction before the top surface of the bricks are removed. Tomorrow we will begin to do this. [Input File: S805lr2.j]
2008-8-06 lR The box structure, f40 was cut into two section in order to understand it's construction. Sections on the north and east were cut, showing that both half and whole bricks were used in construction with the east section also showing the bricks stepped up between levels. Photographs will be taken tomorrow before more of the bricks are removed. The western end of the structure was also defined by removing 5 cm from f62 and coming towards the structure. [Input File: S806lr.j]
2008-8-09 lR A series of thin vertical bricks set at an oblique angle were found while excavating f87. The bricks are held together with thin mortar forming a wall west of a2, f40, and possibly forming a room bounded by f97 and f63 or a wall for f40. [Input File: S809lr.j]
2008-8-19 lR This morning the north section of k101 was drawn. This section is not the true north section of k101, it is actually our cut into k14 but shows nicely the wall f127 which we plan to remove today for the purpose of exposing f40 (a2) which is presumably behind wall f127. After the section was drawn we then photographed the section, including overhead, oblique, and direct north views. The wall was removed in section, beginning in the eastern area working west, leaving a small section to see the horizontal bricks from two sides. We then proceeded to continue removing the bricks to west, then cleaned out the section and photographed it again. What was in view was bricky material sitting on a nice row of horizontal bricks then several centimeters below, a layer of reddish fine clay appearing similar in shape and size to bricks but much softer than brick. Another layer was removed, moving north and this time removing f40 vertical bricks to expose another layer of the horizontal bricks behind. In the west, more stones surfaced to the north, in line with the stones from wall f125. It is unclear if these stones continue north, if so then a2 was built over f125 wall. [Input File: S818lr.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-27 lR mud brick wall running west to east in the northwest corner of k13, partly in the north baulk. The wall measures 50 cm in width, constructed of one brick and a half. The length is unknown as the wall is yet completely excavated, at the moment measures 120 cms. Two types of bricks are present, an orange-reddish and gray bricks with gray mortar lines, with two courses currently visible. The bricks run into the west baulk with more bricks visible in the west baulk suggesting the wall turns to form a corner. A parallel wall may be present 127 cm south from f41. Here a large bricky mass is present but no clear brick faces or lines distinguishable. [Input File: S728lr.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-7-28 lR Spent the entire day focusing on f41 and the area to the west. Only the northwest corner was articulated and defined thus far so increments of 5cms was shaved off from the surface to see if these bricks extend to the east. Two more bricks were found but the area is extremely confusing with hard compact material showing no brick lines or faces. The strategy then changed, starting from the south end working towards the bricks, 10 cms was removed to see if the inner face of the wall could be found. The faces were found however more bricks surfaced below, extending the width of the wall by a meter to the south. Either this is a very thick wall or something other than a wall. [Input File: S728lr.j]
2008-7-29 lR In the northeast in line with f41 more bricks surfaced indicating that the wall continues to the east, under the baulk. Bricks are also present in k14 east; if this is the same wall then this is either a very large structure or a wall delineating an area, similar in function to a fence. [Input File: S729lr.j]
2008-8-09 lR More bricks are beginning to surface south of the defined area for f41. This bricks are the same orientation, found lower in elevation. At this moment we are leaving these bricks are part of f41 and defining it as a thick wall. In the next locus, k14, the same situation is visible with more bricks to the south of f63 wall, also at a lower elevation. One possibility is that these walls are later additions to narrow an associated room or alternatively, these could be two walls that abut each other. [Input File: S809lr.j]
2008-8-25 lC We finished removing part of f30, to find a compact surface, visible in section, and to find more bricks of the wall f41. [Input File: S825lC.j]
argument 2008-7-28 lR One argument for defining f41 as a pavement rests on the burned area, f59, sitting on one of the bricks of f41, similar to a hearth of some sort. This could be also a reuse of the original wall, setting a hearth over the wall after abandonment and build-up of the area. [Input File: S728lr.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-8-09 lR A tannur set into ash f36, with the base in tact but broken. The tannur is 10 cm deep, found collapsed in, and shows small broken bricks around the top surface used as props to set the tannur. Ash was found inside, indicating no inclusions such as pottery or animal bones with the fill clean ash. [Input File: S811lr6.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-7-24 lR Began to excavate f42 today using small wooden spatulas. The fill inside consisted of soft light gray ash, no pottery or bones found only fragments of the tannur and over fired brick pieces. Currently, 10cms was removed with the tannur continuing to go down. Typically at Mozan, tannurs sit on floors with only 5 cms remaining of the base. In the Mittani levels, A18 contained several tannur ovens and cooking installations that are different from the earlier phases. The Mittani ovens found were pedastooled or propped up by bricks allowing the person using the tannur to stand instead of squatting down. If the walls of f42 go down then the tannur dates to the same phase as the Mittani structures in A18 rather than a later phase that built over the earlier ash fills. [Input File: S725lr.j]
2008-7-23 lR The base of a tannur, found while excavating f29, interface between bricky material and ash, f36. The base is complete with large fragments of the tannur resting on top of the base. The tannur appears to sit on the ash f36 with a cobblestone floor found immediately to the north. [Input File: S723lr.j]
2008-8-09 lR Excavated f36 ash around the tannur today, exposing the outer surface showing the tannur floating in ash. [Input File: S809lr.j]
strategy (projected or implemented) 2008-8-09 lR Tomorrow we plan to take a photograph of the outer surface of the tannur then remove it. The tannur is floating or cut into the ash which continues to go down deeper. We are thus removing the tannur to excavate the ash f36. [Input File: S809lr.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-8-09 lR After a1, room, began to emerge we assigned new feature numbers to the soil inside the structure and outside the structure. This feature is the soil west of the wall f46 and north of wall f38, forming an "L" shape around the outside of a1. The accumulation is similar to collapse or abandonment build-up with brick fragments mixed with softer soil. Under f44, stones from f57 pavement were found with the last 5-7 cm of f44 becoming harder and more compact. [Input File: S811lr6.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-27 lR A crude pavement comprised of small cobblestones averaging 5-7mm in size embedded within a bricky matrix overlaying ash. The pavement continues south, under the baulk, into k3 (see f43), extending 96 cm north from the south baulk at it's easternmost border width, 250 cm in length, and 76 cm in the westernmost border width. While the pavement is mostly constructed of small rounded cobblestones, 3 larger stones are present in the west measuring an average of 15-33 cm in length. This pavement (f43 and f50 combined) runs west to east then turns in the east, following a north-south orientation into k3. Toward the north eastern border, the pavement appears to step down. Few inclusions are visible, differing from f43 where large body sherds are integrated into the pavement [Input File: S727lr4.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-28 lR Found in the eastern half of k12, triangular in shape and wider in the north measuring 300cm then tapering and sloping slightly to the south measuring 175 cm. This feature is approximately 30 cms below f27, very compact with faint traces of brick lines that do not form any shape. Initially labeled as brick melt for the color, hardness, and texture is similar to f27 brick melt but yesterday we reassessed this feature, finding flat brick lines in section suggesting a possible structure, wall, or pavement. [Input File: S728lr.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-7-28 lR f52 was found sloping down with f24 clearly coming up to f52. [Input File: S728lr.j]
2008-8-10 lR This feature along with f82 continues to perplex us as it is a large amorphous bricky mass with faint suggestions of brick lines that never materialize into complete bricks. Today after meeting with fAB, it was decided to remove 10 cm of it starting from the south. This material was very difficult to remove coming out in large bricky chunks that fail to break with your hands, perhaps secondarily fired from whatever created ash f22 and f24. At the end of the day no resolution was reach for underneath the same compact bricky mass is present. To the south, f82 was also removed 10 cm finding interesting veins of reddish to orange clay. Given all the ash, the artifacts we are finding which include small fragments of flint, lithic blades and samples of minerals, perhaps this area was associated with some type of craft production. Several holes are present on the western side of f52, interpreted as animal holes although it's strange to have so many on the surface and may be linked to a specific function. The largest hole, fill f104 has one corner with brick faces suggestive of a possible door but the other side is rounded, appearing more like an animal hole than a doorway. The fill was partially excavated to see if more brick faces surfaced, these faces were found only in the southern end. [Input File: S810lr2.j]
strategy (projected or implemented) 2008-7-28 lR This feature is similar to f41 and f58, a hard bricky mass with no clear brick lines present making it difficult to determine an excavation strategy. At this moment, f52 slopes down in the west where it abuts f24 so we know that it continues in depth. Based on this observation, our strategy is to remove 10 cm from the top, first in a test trench, to see if brick lines surface below. [Input File: S728lr.j]
2008-7-29 lR The area remains confusing as bricky mass is found everywhere with no clear brick faces visible. A 1x1 meter trench was set up in the north, adjacent to the north baulk, with 10 cm removed to see if bricks are present below. A section was also cut from the sloping bricky mass in the west, revealing nice brick lines. By the end of the day a wall was exposed running west to east, under the east section and likely is the same wall as f41 in k13. [Input File: S729lr.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-28 lR Series of vertical bricks in the southeast corner of k14, running into the east section and visible in k15 as f40. To the north of the vertical bricks, there are also flat horizontal bricks that extend east into k15. At the moment we are keeping both these sets of bricks as f56 in k14 until the area is better defined. Presumably the bricks also run west under f34. [Input File: S728lr.j]
2008-8-09 lR f40 with f56 are included under aggregate 2 (a2) forming a box like structure with multiple courses of vertical bricks, obliquely set, with thick mortar between the bricks. The first course was eroded and removed early in the season so it's difficult to reconstruct the original shape of this structure; it appears that the bricks were set in a manner that created a domed outer shape with a square base. The top bricks were cut back in section to understand how it was constructed with more bricks found below, vertically set and identical to the top course. On the western end, a wall constructed of thin vertical bricks obliquely set abuts a2, forming a wall oriented north to south, given the similarities in construction we are assuming that this wall is associated with a2. The western border also shows some of the bricks collapsed and these bricks were left articulated. It is unclear how deep this structure is, at the moment it appears to be three courses in construction utilizing bricks measuring 36 x 36 x 10 cm. [Input File: S811lr6.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-8-04 lR Articulated this feature today after the east baulk of k14 was removed. This appears to be several courses of vertical bricks forming a rectangular shape located between k14 and k15. The eastern portion was cut back to see if a section could be made, exposing the brick faces but only a few faces emerged. The sides were also defined. This is either a wall, using vertical bricks however since it doesn't continue in k14 or k15; it seems strange to be a wall. Another possibility is a grave with several cases at Mozan and other areas showing vertical bricks used in tomb construction. Lastly, this could also simply be a brick pile used for construction that was left in place after abandonment. [Input File: S804.J]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-28 eE A stone surface found in k15 serving as a pavement for a1 and found under the walls; f46 and f38, extending past the walls in the north and west. The stones were found under f44, west of f46 wall (outside of a1) and under f55, accumulation inside a1. The stones vary in size, averaging between 5-30 cm in length. Pottery inclusions are visible between the stones in some areas suggesting either the pottery became embedded during use or were used in the construction of the pavement. [Input File: S728eE.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-7-28 eE The stones only continue 50 cm west from f46. However, current removal of f55, accumulation inside a1, is beginning to reveal that the stones continue into the structure, perhaps forming a pavement for a1. The northern section of the pavement appears to continue around the wall f38, following the corner and also showing signs of continuing into the walled structure. Further excavation will soon reveal the extent of the surface boundaries. [Input File: S728eE.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-28 lR A hearth located immediately south of f41 wall, circular in shape and black from ash. On the surface, a layer of over fired yellow-green clay or brick is present with the black ash below. The hearth extends into the east baulk, presumably continuing to form a circle (only half is exposed in k13) and rests on bricks from f41 wall. It is still unclear whether f41 is a thick wall or pavement which changes the dating of f59. If the hearth is sitting on a pavement, then the bricks below are associated and contemporary with the hearth however if the hearth is resting on a wall, then likely the wall was reused at a later phase perhaps contemporary to tannur f42.

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-7-29 lR Darker gray soil, ashy located south of f41 wall under f30 brick collapse. This feature appears concentrated in the eastern half of the k13 although f50, cobblestone pavement, was left pedastooled for a drawing and presumably f60 is also located under the pavement. [Input File: S729lr.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-7-29 lR Yesterday more bricks were found in the northwest corner extending to the east however the eastern boundary remained unclear. Today we focused on excavating the eastern half of the locus, removing humps of soil and making everything level. Two pick runs were done, one as f30, as the area was still bricky and hard but after we noticed the feature changing. A new feature was assigned, f60 accumulation bounded or associated with wall f41. The soil turned ashy, softer, with large amounts of animal bones and sherds present. [Input File: S729lr.j]
2008-8-07 lR Excavated 5 cm of this accumulation today to come towards the bricks f60 from the south. [Input File: S809lr.j]
2008-8-09 lR This feature was fully removed today finding a sharp contrast between the gray dirty accumulation full of pottery and animal bones to a light gray soil that is more compact with brick lines surfacing, f89. [Input File: S809lr.j]
2008-8-26 lC Today we removed part of f60 just south of the big wall f41, uncovering a sloping hard compact layer, that could be interpreted as a kind of floor. [Input File: S826lC.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-8-12 lR A small pavement or installation made of cobblestones located in the western part of k14. These stones are organized in a square shape flanked by a larger stone on the north corner. The stones appear to abut f63 wall, respecting the edge with the larger stone overlaying f63. A cluster of pottery sherds were found between f48, f34, and f61, perhaps a continuation of the sherd pavement suggesting that these features are contemporary. Underneath f61, approximately 40 cm below, another cobblestone pavement was found f93. [Input File: S812lr7.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-8-12 lR Mud brick wall running west to east located adjacent to the north section with the wall continuing north under the section. The wall is constructed of 2 bricks and a half, forming a portion of the large wall that spans from k12, k13, k14, and k15 (see f64 and f41). Another mud brick wall was found at a lower elevation, f106, that either abuts or bonds with wall f63 to the south, forming a thick wall that measures approximately 200 cm in thickness. The depth of this wall is unknown as it is only partially excavated but from k12, we see that this wall continues down at least a meter to the current excavated level. In A18, a stone pavement was found at elevation 9185, perhaps the floor surface associated with this wall. If this is the case, then the wall would measure 2 meters in depth. [Input File: S812lr7.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-8-09 lR More bricks are beginning to surface south of the defined area for f41. This bricks are the same orientation, found lower in elevation. At this moment we are leaving these bricks are part of f41 and defining it as a thick wall. In the next locus, k14, the same situation is visible with more bricks to the south of f63 wall, also at a lower elevation. One possibility is that these walls are later additions to narrow an associated room or alternatively, these could be two walls that abut each other. [Input File: S809lr.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-8-12 lR A mud brick wall running west to east adjacent to the north section of k12, extending into the north and east section. This feature represents a portion of a large wall found throughout four loci, with this portion forming the western end, extending 300 cm to the west then ending with f24 ash abutting the wall. The first two courses of bricks were removed to see better brick faces below, finding the walls constructed utilizes both vertical and horizontal bricks. The horizontal bricks are half bricks set lengthwise in one row with a set of vertical bricks to the north. This construction appears only in the northwest half of the wall with the eastern portion appearing to be only horizontal bricks with the same construction as f41 and f63 wall. One possibility is that this wall was reused at a later phase, making it into a bin similar to f79 and f71 wall in k4. Soft fill was found between the vertical bricks labeled f88 and partially excavated. To the south of this wall, f52 either abuts or bonds with f64 wall. Currently this wall continues down for over a meter in depth. [Input File: S812lr7.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-8-04 lR The extent of the wall is unknown with hard, compact, bricky material to the immediate south of the defined bricks of f64. Today we removed the soft material above the compact layer to see if we could articulate the brick fall or bricks. Several brick lines emerged, as well in the section with the area to the south becoming less compact and more like brick fall. New feature numbers will be assigned to these two areas since f52 was defined as brick melt and may be a wall. [Input File: S804.J]
2008-8-07 lR This wall continues to go down. We are currently approximately 2 meters down in the the ash with the bricks from f64 jutting out in section. Small rodent holes are present along with a large hole without bricks that may be a doorway. [Input File: S809lr.j]
2008-8-09 lR sE made an interesting observation that the bricks of f64 have a set of horizontal and vertical bricks, whereas it was assumed the wall was constructed only of horizontal bricks that are visible in the north section. The area was further articulated finding an area where a brick was missing, thus forming a probe into the area under the bricks. A new feature was created, f88 defined as fill between the bricks, showing a soft ashy soil with a few vertical bricks sitting on this ashy soil f88. [Input File: S809lr.j]
2008-8-14 lR A pavement, f117, was found under f52 and f82 (seen in the eastern border) forming a thick highly compacted floor surface with pottery sherds underneath serving as leveling material for the floor. f117 does not extend north under f64, appearing localized under f52 and f82. This would suggest that f64 is earlier in construction. [Input File: S816lr.J]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-8-12 lR Patches of compact brick melt layer (see f27) that does not cover the entire locus. This layer was softer, brick components were visible resembling a thinner brickfall. [Input File: S812lr7.j]

Recovery/Assignment
daily notes 2008-8-03 lC After the removal of topsoil f66, we uncovered a layer, f67 with compact patches of brick melt. After one big pick run we uncovered two new features: a compact layer f69 in the northern and southern part of the locus and a soft material crossing E-W, maybe a fill of a channel or something similar to a cut.

Description/Count
description (summary) 2008-8-13 lR Vertical bricks found clustered in the southwest corner of k3 at the same level as the tannur f42. These bricks have no specific shape, appearing haphazardly oriented with no presence of mortar between the bricks. Underneath, in section view from A18, a tannur f100 lies underneath f68. The bricks are sitting on ash from f22 that spreads into k3 labeled as f36 in k3 with the bricks set in a pile perhaps serving as a retaining wall to keep the ash from reaching the eastern side. The bricks may also be associated with the tannur f42, perhaps used as a rough platform. [Input File: S813lr.J]
