Description 2005-8-23sC f224 has been assigned to the wall running E-W in k14.
2005-8-31mH This is a east-west oriented stone wall abutting f127, a north-south oriented stone wall, which in turn abuts f131 and bonds with f128. f224 is located one stone north of the (current?) end of f127. The wall is quite irregular on top and its stones sit on material that seems to be brick crumble f269. At its north end, where it bonds with f128, f127 is equal in height with the apron steps ( f131) next to it. As it progresses south it becomes slowly higher than the apron ( f131). For the most part it is level on top. Just south of m3968 the top, however, becomes irregular.

Stratigraphic reasons 2005-9-14mH Abutted by Mitanni layer f197.
2008-3-5pC f224 should have been built between the building of wall f144 and wall f232
Other reasons 2005-9-14mH Raising of f288
2011-5-16cJC Wall built during the brickfall phase
2011-11-21cJC Curtain wall on top of earlier wall ( f288). It is an attempt to rebuild and maintain area after brickfall has already begun to cover area.
I99.NTime 2005-8-31mH I suspect that the stones forming f224 were taken from the top of f127. Thus f224 must be later in time than f127. f224 was not constructed to contain material dumped into the corner formed by f128 and f127 until much later than the original start of the dumping activity. The third millennium dump layers discovered in the corner of f127 and f128 slope very heavily towards the south and seem to follow a slope noticeable lower down in the wall f127. The top of f224, however, slopes from west to east whereas the material that was contained by it is approximately horizontal. Today we removed a course of stones from f224 underneath which was the crumbly material. Under this layer we have another course of stones, which is still in situ. It remains to be seen whether this part of f224 appears much earlier than the upper course.
