Description 2009-8-2cJC Gray layer with uneven surface. There are pebbles embeddeed in the matrix but it is very uneven, unlike a laid floor. There are also sherds included. This layer is possibly a result of water flow. The pebbles in the eastern portion are larger and become smaller as it moves to the west, possibly because the larger pebbles settled out of the water sooner than the small pebbles.
2009-8-3cJC This feature is composed of pebbles (5cm and smaller) and a brown matrix. The layer is very hard and the soil is coarse. The surface is uneven with some sherds laying flat. It is contained to the southeast corner of k5 (including the east baulk). It slopes down slightly to the south-west and does not continue across the whole square. The western edge does not appear to be cut.

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2009-8-3cJC We exposed this feature completely, relayed and photographed it, and removed it. The pottery was sent to mKB for analysis.
Argument 2009-8-2cJC May be the same as f358 in k110 but right now there is no stratigraphic connection.
2009-8-3cJC May be the same as f355 but it is more disturbed and with larger pebbles. It is, however, at the same elevation and does appear to follow across through the east baulk of k5.
