Description (summary) 2006-10-09 jW Natural accumulation under natural accumulation f121 in k13. Compared to f121, it is considrably harder, perhaps reflecting the influence of water on aeolian deposits as the baqaya glacis was first covered. [Input: QX09JW.j]

Stratigraphic reasons of assignment 2012-10-07 jW First layer of accumulation deposited on the EDIII glacis f109. [Input: WX07JW.j]
Typological reasons for assignment 2012-10-07 jW All identified ceramics were Late Chalcolithic. [Input: WX07JW.j]
Other reasons, reservations, qualifications 2012-10-07 jW What we can say is that this feature was deposited on the surface of the baqaya glacis f109 before accumulation f121. We hypothesize 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. We assume that the LC sherds were either deposited by EDIII excavators who dug deeper into the temple mound or that the LC sherds were washed down the mound from deteriorating LC structures above.
