description (summary) 2005-8-16 rE Packed fill below fill, f30, and above packing, f50, seen in the eastern baulk of k12. It was seen as reddish (compared with f38), and had few inclusions and forms part of the substructure for apron wall, f10, in k12. It may have been packing for a late phase of perimeter wall, f11, and addition of the wall apron, f10, or what now seems more likely, one of a number of lots of fill, brought in from elsewhere, that were used to build the mound between the perimeter wall to the south rising to the BA temple to the north.

2012-10-07 jW What we can say is that this feature was deposited on the surface of the baqaya glacis f50 before accumulation f38. We speculate that the EDIII glacis was kept clean for several successive periods of occupation, which accounts for the general lack of ceramics and items in this covering accumulation. Since we know that general preservation of the EDIII temple mound structures began to lag in the Mittani period, we assign an early Mittani stratum to this feature. [Input File: Wx07jW.j]
