Daily notes about recovery of elements 2005-08-03 cVP Here we have reached one and a half meters of depth, that we think would be enought to provide a good lateral view of that side of the Wall. That is why we stop going down here, and we will begin to excavate the artificial security baulks. [Input: P802CVP.j]
2005-08-03 cVP we excavate the E and N security baulks, and a small triangle of earth left in the SE corner of the trench, levelling all the surface of the square. We finish the excavation here for the moment, not having reached the bottom of f143. [Input: P802CVP.j]
2005-08-18 cvp We begin to dig the first step, trying to avoid the removal of the Elevator as much as possible. [Input: P817CVP.j]
2005-08-20 cvp We have been digging the first step but, due to the difficulty to throw the dirt of the other squares in the Elevator at the same time as excavating here, we moved the team temporarily to k12. [Input: P817CVP.j]
2006-08-29 mS Began to go down in the first step. After the strategy meeting this am, we will only step down in this area. Finished the interface, f203 and originally assigned f172 to the next feature, the brown multilayers, but it is really f181. [Input: Q824MS.j]
2006-08-30 mS continued excavating step, and seem to be coming down towards the end of f181 and are starting to uncover large stones possibly in line with the stones to the east from last season. Finding very distinctive Nuzi pottery in this layer. [Input: Q824MS.j]
2006-08-31 mS Continue going down and are about 40cm above the next step of 8800. We are in f181 here and are watching for the transition to f184 which has a top elevation of about 8815. [Input: Q824MS.j]
2006-09-02 mS Have declared new feature, f219 which seems to be the same as f184 above it. There is a layer of brown with charcoal or carbon inclusions and white inclusions. From last season we believe this may be the Mitanni to 3rd Millenium transition so we are going more slowly here. We uncovered the skull of a wolf, i38. There are few objects, however. We follow this layer as far as it goes and photograph it tomorrow. [Input: Q902MS.j]
2006-09-03 mS we cleaned the layer, f219, and have ceased excavation here at the moment to move all workmen to the immediate view strategy. This layer is consistent with f184, some patches of ash or charcoal and carbon with streaks of white vegetal matter. Probably not the transition from Mitanni to 3rd Mil because we have Mitanni sherds at lower levels. [Input: Q902MS.j]
2006-09-04 mS in discussion with lC about f219. It is not really a full accumulation layer, but merely a lens with charcoal and carbon areas. It seems to be a lens inside f184 which is the larger accumulation of brown soil with carbon inclusions. Per a conversation with jO, this lens may be an area where something was burned rather than just an accumulation. [Input: Q902MS.j]
2006-09-21 mS started excavating a staircase here today to enable visitors to descend more easily down to the plaza level. It is in the northern portion of the locus and runs west to east and down two meters, from 9000 to 8800. This shoul be finished tomorrow. [Input: Q916MS.j]
Procedures 2005-08-02 cvp As we open the new squares with the new orientation, the space remaining on this locus would not be rectangular. So the four markers laid by bWP would reflect in the plot as a trapezoid. Then a big part of their surface would coincide with part of the space of the old squares excavated in 2003.
