Description 2009-8-20lC Thick ashy layer found below f345. This ashy accumulation is irregular in shape, thicker in the middle and really ashy in texture, while to the south and to the north it is more compact and sandy. It is in general compact with fragments of mud bricks and many small charcoals. [Input file: T831LC.J / T831LC.-J]

Time sequencing
Stratum to which element belongs 2011-2-10lC s651J1A [Input file: V211LC.J / V211LC.-J]
Phase to which stratum belongs 2011-2-10lC h3mJ1A [Input file: V211LC.J / V211LC.-J]
Stratigraphic reasons 2011-2-11lC Stratigraphic position and relationship with other nearby features, elevation show a date of EDIII. [Input file: V212LC.J / V212LC.-J]
Typological reasons 2009-9-24mKB ( q1306) coarse wares: - p6 jar with rounded rim undercut on the exterior, may be a casserole, - p4 small jar, - p1 jar with globular body in a tan-brown slip, with some chaff and calcite, compact clay with smooth surface interior and exterior, this ware is much lecc coarse than the LCH ware. Fine ware: - p2 S ware rounded base, very green and well smoothed surface, - p3 small orange-brown bowl with simple rim in RC1 ware, - p32 conical cup greener toward base and yellow at rim, FC ware and rougher texture on interior and exterior than the usual FC ware surface [Input file: T927MKB.J / T927MKB.-J]
2009-9-27mKB LC3 coarse shapes: q1293- p1 part of jar neck with bright red burnished paint on exterior and interior, probably Uruk Red ware so probably imported but this sherd is a different color red and the examples from the Qraya excavations have a coarser surface texture. Fine wares: q1306- p5 flat base in gray-brown ware, q1306- p3 red-brown fine bowl, q1306- p32 cup yellow-buff near rim and greener below in a ware that is coarser than the usual Simple ware this cup is made out of, it has a lot of sand temper, other shapes: q1311- p1 and - p2 deep bowls with squared rims in a coarse ware but well fired, q1311- p70 body sherd of cooking vessel with triangular shaped depressions on exterior for heat transfer, q1311 green-buff conical cup with simple rim even distribution of color (therefore earlier than ED III), q1311- p4 red brown fine cup with small calcite temper with beaded rim that is undercut on the exterior, q1311- p5 small cup with beaded undercut rim with lightly incised, fine decoration on the exterior.

Other reasons 2009-9-24mKB mixed Phases 3s and 2h [Input file: T927MKB.J / T927MKB.-J]
2009-9-27mKB a feature below the early escarpment (^es c1), few shape sherds but LC3 sherds are clear and fine shapes are probably earlier but their date is not clear [Input file: T927MKB.J / T927MKB.-J]
2009-9-27mKB probably Phase 3 and Phase 2d-h (exact part of the Ninevite V period is unclear) [Input file: T927MKB.J / T927MKB.-J]
