Definition 2009-8-12cJC floor B

Alternative definitions 2009-8-13cJC This feature may be the same as f348 in k15 although we have no direct contact between the features. I suggest this because it looks very similar in the damaged area, with a reddish granular matrix. When we brush it with the whisk brush it looks almost exactly the same.

Description 2009-8-13cJC Dark gray (ashy) and red mix. The red portions are hard and seem to come apart in chunks where the darker gray parts are softer and ashy. We also found some pieces of charcoal inside the feature. There were some friable kiln waste of a green color that was not collected as it disintegrated to dust while excavating. The reddish yellow chunks correspond to 7.5YR8/6. A portion of f379 in the center of k110 appears to be damaged and is very red and granular.

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Procedure 2009-8-13cJC This feature was excavated with the pick and the brush
C99.NRecovery 2009-8-13cJC When first exposing f377 we thought that it had a subsurface of ashy material but instead we came to understand that was a separate feature that we now call f379. Therefore, q-lots associated with f377 may include some material from f379.
