Definition 2009-7-26cJC wall
Summary 2009-9-9cJC Small curtain wall in front of the revetment wall ( f128) to the west of the the wall f127. f346, together with f334, is one wall that abuts the western wall ( f127) of the apron ( f131). It is composed of large limestones, some with a triangular shape. The f346 portion of the wall was partially collapsed when excavated.

Description 2009-7-27cJC Accumulation of stones in k14. They appear to form a wall. The stones to the north of the wall appear to be stones that have fallen off the top of the wall.
2009-7-28cJC This wall is composed of several large stones. It is held together with a brown soil. It is probably a continuation of f334 although there was no direct contact visible between f346 and f334 when f334 was removed. Very few sherds were found inside of the wall. 20 stones of this feature were relayed, only 18 were visible before dismantling the wall. Most of the stones were medium sized (approximately 30x30cm) while some were quite large (approximately 50x60cm).

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Strategy 2009-7-27cJC We will assign one feature to all the stones, even those that have fallen off the top. Although this wall appears to line up with f334, we have given it a separate feature as it was not found touching f334 and could conceivably be different, however, I believe it is a continuation of wall f334.

Notes on typology 2009-7-28cJC The brickfall ( f341) comes up to the south face of this wall. The wall appears to have already collapsed by the time the brickfall comes and covers it. This suggests that the wall had already fallen into disuse and had had several stones fall over before the brickfall came and covered it.
