Description 2005-8-29sC f238 ( v104, v104a) is a floor surface in k103 (below f236) that covers all the unit. It is characterized by a very soft and fine texture, clayish (wet is sticky and plastic) and by the presence of ash lenses spread in the central area of the square.

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Harmonization 2010-12-30cJC The top elevation was originally listed as 7366 which is obviously too low, not to mention that it is lower than the ending elevation. Based on a comparison with the ending elevation of the previous feature and an examination of the q-lot entries it seems more likely that the top elevation should be 8836.
C99.NRecovery 2005-8-29sC f238 presents a difference between the top elevation in the N and the top elevation in the S area of the square. The top elevation in the N area is m3953 +30 -166, while on the S is m3953 +10 -166. The same occur for the bottom elevation: the bottom elevation is m3953 +30 -166 in the N area, while on the S is m3953 +10 -166.

Time sequencing
Stratum to which element belongs 2011-11-11cJC s640J2B
Phase to which stratum belongs 2011-11-11cJC h3nJ2B
Stratigraphic reasons 2005-9-14mH Below f231 in elevation. f231 dated to Phase h1-J h1JPA with pottery.
Other reasons 2011-5-16cJC Sloping accumulation in front of revetment wall, elevation just above the sloping layers associated with the construction of the revetment wall
2011-11-21cJC This accumulation abuts f240, so likely belongs to the same stratum
