Description 2007-7-13mH patches whith plenty of pottery sherds all aligned horizontally. We determined that this area was a walking floor and defined it as f142. On the floor we found a decorated Khabur sherd q373.3 in situ.

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Procedure 2007-7-13mH We took photos of this floor and the sherd. These are represented in v76. After the photos we tried to see whether the floor continued towards west by removing a few centimeters at a time with a small pick. The floor did not continue and thus we continued with the big pick. This area was removed as f140
Harmonization 2010-12-29cJC The sherd that was identified as "Khabur" ( q373.3) is likely a Mittani sherd based on the stratigraphy of the area.
lack of information 2010-12-29cJC Bottom elevation was not recorded for the feature or the q-lot.

Stratigraphic reasons 2005-9-14mH Located above f127. Same elevation as f140, f138, f135, and f139
2008-3-5pC same elevation as f141
Other reasons 2005-9-14mH Small walking surface
2011-5-16cJC Notes indicate there was a Khabur sherd embedded in this, but it could also be Mittani. This layer probably represents the upper levels of the late Mittani occupation before the construction of the second apron.
2011-11-21cJC Use floor associated with the use during the brickfall. Eventually this use was covered up and the stone f154 was put in place. Although the sherds are noted as Khabur by the excavators it is clear that this period should date to the Mittani phase.
