A98.NLabeling 2009-8-3cJC In the west section of k110 we can see some slight differences in the layers that were not visible when picking and removing from above. This lead to f357 in k110 being very thick, we will try and follow the thinner layers in k5. For this reason we have assigned a new feature number to f363 instead of using f357, however, f363 is the same as the top portion of f357.

Description 2009-8-3cJC Flaky with a plate-like structure. The soil is primarily brown with medium-fine particles. Some chunks come out, about 5cm in size, usually with a flat bottom. Each plate-like layer is about 5cm in thickness and can be separated with the trowel although occasionally it is very hard and needs to be picked.

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2009-8-5cJC Today we continued removing this feature. It was composed of many flakey layers and it was difficult to follow just one layer. The layers separate easily with the trowel.

Phase to which stratum belongs 2011-11-11cJC h3uJ2B
Stratigraphic reasons 2009-9-16cJC Same as features in k110 which are all assigned to EDIII
Typological reasons 2009-9-18mKB q864- p4 and - p5 flaring necked jars; q870- p11 and - p13 small cups with simple rim and strong wheel marks on the exterior.
Other reasons 2009-9-18mKB the cups were made on a fast wheel from the hump and therefore resemble the later Phase 4j cups so probably the date is closer to the end of the Early Dynastic period.
2011-11-21cJC Similar in elevation to f330, f329 in same area.
