Definition 2005-8-2vVE accumulation D

Description 2005-8-2aL This is a natural accumulation in k4 that has a hard surface probably as consequence of its exposion. Once dug its texture is soft and crumbly; in the NW corner, close to the 3 stones running E-W, there are little pebbles and the texture is sandy: it suggests the presence of the bottom of a little puddle in ancient time. The pottery found in this feature dates both to Habur and Mitannic time.
