description (summary) 2010-9-13 jW We originally noticed this feature as pockets of soft brown soil with occasional smaller areas of black ash. Portions of two burned animal bones were found in the accompanying q-lot, q411. However, as we excavated it further, we can see that at its thickest point it is a relatively thin (10cm) band of ashy soil which extends in a rough pattern bounded by a circle of diameter 1 meter. [Input File: U914jW.j]
2010-10-07 jW A pocket of disturbed soil formed by a colony of social animals. Our first analysis concluded that it was the fill of a pit, but as the k13 east section was examined prior to drawing, one could see the individual burrows which cut through f346 and intruded into the top of wall, f348.

stratigraphic reasons of assignment 2012-10-07 jW At the time of excavation, our first impression was that this was the fill of a pit. Later, when the section was examined, it was clear that this was the residue from a colony of burrowing animals. Because this colony could have been active at any time after the f348 wall was built, we assigned it to the highest stratum available. [Input File: Wx07jW.j]
typological reasons for assignment 2012-10-07 jW Ceramics from this feature were securely dated to the LC3 period. [Input File: Wx07jW.j]
other reasons, reservations, qualifications 2012-10-07 jW We can resolve the conflict in favor of the higher stratum because although the burrowing disturbed f346 and f348, it did not transport sherds from higher strata. [Input File: Wx07jW.j]
