Description 2009-9-14cJC Pebble floors in front of the first staircase just coming up to the very base of second staircase. Composed of an sequence of pebble floors with thin layers of accumulation between them. These pavements are grouped together based on their stratigraphic continuity and typological similarities. The pebbles are much larger than those of the earlier pavements (^p v1).
2012-10-16cJC Pebble pavements that run up against the first staircase (^stai r1). This grouping of pavements is characterized by mixed EDIII and Ninevite 5 sherds indicating they were in use during the transition of those periods.

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Harmonization 2012-5-14cJC On W514 the strata assignment information was updated by cJC to reflect the J2B sequence.

Typological reasons 2009-9-14cJC mKB identified early EDIII sherds embedded in the pavements.
2012-10-16cJC This grouping of pebble pavements is based on the similarity of the typology of sherds amongst them. The floors have a mix of Ninevite 5 and early EDIIIa sherds.
Other reasons 2012-10-16cJC These floors are constructed using the same techniques as the later ^p v3 grouping of floors, however, they are distinguished on the basis of their pottery typology which diverges from the ^p v3 grouping through the inclusion of Ninevite 5 materials.
