Phase to which stratum belongs 2011-11-11cJC h7fJ2B
Stratigraphic reasons 2008-3-5pC use area equal to f171, f150
Typological reasons 2005-9-14mH Mixed pottery dating from Mitanni/Khabur to LC3.
Other reasons 2005-9-14mH Same in elevation as f150 in k4. Also = f171 in k103.
2011-5-16cJC Ashy layer above brickfall, equal to f150
2011-11-21cJC Interface of EDIII and Mittani. This feature is confusing as the excavators note is is roughly similar to f150, which is the post-brickfall use of the area, but there are no features equivalent to brickfall in k13 so it is possible that during the brickfall phase there was little build-up in this area as it was already higher and sloping down towards the curtain wall ( f228), but then how would the upper curtain wall f224, get up so high in relation this feature? Probably because the accumulations from the EDIII slope down away from the revetment wall to the south. Close to the revetment wall this feature is at similar levels to the accumulations associated with the phase right after the brickfall, but as it goes south it slopes down, and is covered by the accumulations such as f200, which has the small curtain wall f224 resting on it.
I99.NTime 2005-9-12mKB 1 red painted and burnished bowl typical of the Mittani period, 1 wide disk base, and a number of Khabur type painted sherds. Earlier ceramics include Phase 4 ribbed rims and a flat base of the LC3 period.
