Definition 2009-7-21cJC brickfall
Summary 2009-8-27cJC Accumulation of reddish soil with some white accumulations. It is bricky in consistency and comes apart in chunks. Although orginally f335 was intended to refer to the accumulation abutting the wall f334 in the west, through a recording problem it instead became the accumulation under the wall. This accumulation was directly under the wall f346, with the stones of f349 embedded in it. It abuts the wall f127 in the east. It probably formed a foundation for the stone wall f346.

A98.NLabeling 2009-8-22cJC We excavated f335 as the materials under the wall f334 but in previous years it had been left as a baulk which was refered to as f289 which, when excavated, eventually was separated into 3 features f335, f336 and f349.

Description 2009-7-21cJC This accumulation abuts f334 in the east. It contains bricky material, including articulated brick pieces. This may be part of the overall brickfall area that was noted in the whole J2 area. The material was very chunky and broke apart in fist-sized pieces. f335 was exposed for several years so it was eroded and crumbly.
2009-8-20cJC Accumulation under the wall f334. It comes apart in large chunks, including a bricky material. It is relatively thick and may form a base or foundation for the wall ( f334). Inside f335, at the bottom we found some stones, confined only to the area immediately under the wall which we labeled f349. With the bricky material of f335 and the stones of f349 it is very likely that these were placed to form a foundation for the larger stones of f334.

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2009-7-27cJC Today we continued excavating this feature after several days of not working in this area. Some smaller stones were uncovered. Their relationship to the wall ( f334) that covered f335 is unclear.
Procedure 2009-7-29cJC This feature was accidentally confused with f336 in the field. The result of this confusion is that f336 pottery was collected using feature number f335. This is not a major problem as both f336 and f335 are accumulations associated with the wall f334. Originally f335 was just the material from inside the wall. Unfortunately because of the mix up f335 is now both the material from inside the wall as well as from immediately underneath (which should have been f336).
Harmonization 2009-9-2cJC When we first began excavations we assigned the whole J2 area (except k13 and k100) to k54 because we did not have squares strung yet. Now that we have the squares this feature can be assigned to k14.
Problems in recording 2009-8-20cJC f336 was not really used so all types of contact now refer to f335 as the accumulation under the wall, not as it was originally intended as the inclusion inside of the wall.

Stratigraphic reasons 2009-9-16cJC Based on ceramics, this feature is mixed EDIII and Mitanni but the Mitanni remains are probably introduced through the construction of the wall, not originally part of this deposit. Additionally, there are very few Mitanni sherds so this feature is understood to be an EDIIIB deposit.
Other reasons 2011-5-16cJC Directly under the wall f334, presumably built at the same time
2011-11-21cJC Accumulation inside and under Mittani curtain wall.
