Description 2005-8-18aL f196 a brownish feature in k100. It is medium soft in consistence, clayish in texture and contains various inclusions of gypsum and pebbles of various dimensions; it contains also some sherds. f196 seems partially overlaying f194

Stratigraphic reasons 2008-3-5pC The german excavation arrived at this elevation (87.16) dating it to the akkad period. In J6, east of k100, was excavated a floor surface at this level dated to end of Akkad. Therfore f194 is dated to the Third millennium, here h35- h35MZA
Other reasons 2005-9-14mH Erosion and collapse
2011-5-16cJC Floor layers at the same elevation as the lowest step of f130. This feature is between the pebble floors dated to earley EDIII strata but before the later transitional EDIII such as the f381.
2011-11-21cJC This feature is one of the topmost features excavated in k100. The trench was already very deep from previous excavations, once the backfill was removed this feature was one of the first exposed. Based on the stratigraphy, it is just above the pebble pavements associated with the early EDIII but it may be contaminated. I have assigned it to this strata based on the connections to the underlying features but further excavations in k110 could help illuminate the dating of this level.
