Summary 2011-09-28 lC EDIII pebble pavement of the Plaza, used until Mittani period, when the first accumulation on top of it started to be formed. It means the pavement was kept clean for about one thousand years. [Input: V928LC.j]

Description (summary) 2009-09-13 lC Pebble and sherd pavement very compact sharply sloping to the south. This pavement is the earliest Mittani pavement. It is in part overlaying the material of the second escarpment, and in part the also earlier Ninevite 5 floors. It is in general quite sharply sloping to the south and in part also to the west and to the east forming a sort of shallow basin more or less in correspondence of the north to south wall f259. This is probably due to the presence of higher levels to the east (filling of second escarpment) and to the west (Ninevite 5 sloping accumulations). Many sherds and bones were uncovered on top of it. Many sherds belong to Early dynastic and this is likely due to its direct contact with these levels about one millennium earlier. This direct over position shows clearly how the plaza was kept clean for one millennium. [Input: T913LC.j]

Evolution 2011-09-28 lC The pavement was later assigned to EDIII, unlike earlier thought. The pottery coming from this pavement is mixed (Mittani, EDIII and Ninevite 5) and this was the starting point for a stratigraphic review that brought to a new assignement. Now the construction is dated to EDIII on the bases of pottery sherds, and mainly for stratigraphic relationships: the pavement overlays the Second Escarpment, it is going to the West until J5 where it is covered by EDIII accumulations.
