Definition 2009-9-14cJC ~bf

Description 2009-9-14cJC Large brickfall of red and gray bricks sloping from the east down to the west. It falls on top of the erosion ( f366). It is probably Mitanni in date and in J7 some skulls of children were found. The brickfall is composed of both red and gray bricks and has many inclusions, notably pottery - some of it from large storage jars. It is more eroded in the upper layers indicating it was exposed for some time. It appears to have taken place in two phases or slowly as two small walls were discovered inside the brickfall (^ctw l2, ^ctw l3). Associated with these curtain walls are small burned patches and some shallow pits. It appears that as the brickfall began they tried to continue to use the area but were unsuccessful as the first wall was covered as well as the second attempt. The area was then not used until after the brickfall had ended.
