Description 2009-8-10cJC This feature was first identified in the west section of k5 where it appeared as a thin yellowish white line. Once we removed the feature above it ( f365) we were able to explore the idea that this may be a plaster floor similar to f370 in k5 (although at a slightly higher elevation). When we began exposing it we found it appears mostly gray from above with small white and yellow nodules.
2009-8-11cJC This feature when totally exposed appears mostly as a gray flaky layer with white inclusions. It is unclear if it was completely covered in plaster or if the white is just a kind of inclusion.

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2009-8-10cJC We began exposing this feature using the small pick and the brush. Tomorrow we hope to expose it completely, photograph it and remove it.
2009-8-11cJC We exposed this feature, relayed it and photographed it. We also removed it today.

Contact association
Type of contact: Contemporary events/Movable items 2009-8-11cJC q885 sits in f375
Type of contact: Earliest events 2009-8-11cJC f375 sits in f365 (floor D)

F99.NContact 2009-8-11cJC Because we only identified this feature in section and did not see it while we were excavating f365 it is both covered by f365 and also overlays f365. I have decided to say that it sits in f365 but I want to clarify that it is a distinct layer, clearly visible both in section and when we came down on top of it in k15 (although not in k5).
