2009-2-20pC brickfall
Summary 2008-3-6pC this feature corresponds to an accumulation characterized by crumbed bricks: Brick crumble is material in which melting is not yet complete and brick crumples are visible. it belongs to a brickfall of a structure located to the East and fond also in J6

Description 2005-8-20vVE The brick crumble of f189 continues with the same colour and composition.
2005-8-21sC f189 has been assigned to the south-western area of k4 (200 cm W and 200 cm N to r5090) and to the north baulk of k5 (g v91, g v91a). The feature is characterized by a hard surface and it has a crumble structure, probably due to the presence of little pebbles (characterized by different dimensions, generally about 0,2cm and 1,0cm in diameter); when dry it rubs off as loose fine powder and blow away easily. f189 is white and gray in color. f189 abuts f188 (on the eastern area of r509, at almost the same elevation): the upper boundary between them is sharp. f189 is the same of f181.

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Strategy 2005-8-20vVE Each pick run was given a separate q-lot: q534 and q541.
Argument 2007-7-18mH At the corner formed by the former east baulk and north baulk of k5 was found brown soil and pieces of brick. This area was defined as f188, whereas the gray and crumbly soil to its east was labeled as f189. First was excavated within f188 in order to examine whether the feature continues and perhaps reveals a structure in situ. After the first pick run it became evident that so such structure exits. Then was excavated f189, which partly covers f144.
Procedure 2005-8-16sC but we changed the feature because we went down
Problems in recording 2005-9-7mH Perhaps the correct marker for the bottom elevation is m4084 rather than m4085.

Stratigraphic reasons 2008-3-5pC large brickfall same as in J6
Other reasons 2005-9-14mH Gradual bricky build-up on the south side of f144.

I99.NTime 2008-3-6mH brick melt f188, is a deposit where the soil matrix does consist of bricky material. This is the last stage of brick decomposition. Brick crumble f189 is material in which melting is not yet complete and brick crumples are visible. The first stage in the sequence is brick fall where individual pieces of bricks can be discerned, which in this case is located on top of the stone wall f144: one line of brick extending from east to west, sloping down and east after the stones end and continuing east. The direction of the brick deposits seems to indicate a collapse from east to west. Perhaps this brick fall is related to the bricks seen next to f129 (door jamb) in the eastern section of k100
