Back to top: Phase 7mJ1A within Unit J1


     Few elements belonging to the construction of the western Mitanni staircase have been found in the western portion of J1 later included in J5. During 2006 we started looking for the corner or the turn of the Revetment wall and we thought to have found it. More excavation in this area from J5 revealed that the corner was part of a later Mitanni re-assessment of the western portion of the Terrace. Part of this rebuilding in J1 are mainly the crossing wall f228, and few more features, including the new portion of the Mitanni wall forming a sharp corner visible in the picture, above the original EDIII wall.
