Description (summary) 2005-08-08 sC f156 was assigned to the top 10 cm in k14; it is a natural accumulation characterized by a very compact texture (very hard to remove). Once excavated, it presented a fine and friable texture, characterized by the presence of small stones and pebbles. It is gray in colour. Being the top surface, it was exposed throughout the year and therefore was contaminated by fragments of plastic bags and small pieces of plastic, irons and paper. [Input: P808SC.j]

Problems in recording 2005-08-21 mH Our top elevation for this feature in this season (90.32 m) is higher than the bottom elevation of f111 (89.73), last feature excavated in k14 last season. This is because the northern baulk of k14 and an area 1 m south of it were brought down lower than last season the rest of the locus to the south. The bottom elevation of f111 refers to this lower area whereas our f156 is located in the higher area. Until the baulks were re-established this season the baulk of k14 and the 1 m wide stretch to the south of it were included within k13 in our note-taking. This lower area should start at the same elevation as the k13 to the north. The bottom elevation noted in feature log for f125, which was the last feature excavated in k13 last season, however, contradicts this. According to the feature log the bottom elevation of f125 was 90.78 m. This, however, cannot be correct since the top elevation of q354, the second to last qlot in k13 (the last q-lot q361 contains pottery excavated within q354 and did not involve further excavation), is 89.66 m. This elevation is 7 cm higher than our starting elevation with f136, the first feature in k13 (including k14 baulk and the 1 m wide area to its south) this year. Therefore the bottom elevation for f125 noted in the feature log must be incorrect. The correct one should be around 89.59 m, the starting elevation of f136 in k13. [Input: P821MH.j]
