description (summary) 2006-8-30 vVE f582 consists of the very thin remains of several mud bricks that were lying against each other to probably form a pavement. They were covered by the natural accumulation f570. The mud bricks were preserved in a only in a very small surface and as we searched for more mud brick to the East (into J2) we only found a thin layer of red clay, presumably the molten bricks, that covered a softer grey and ashy deposit. The bad preservation of these mud bricks makes it very hard to identify the nature of the relationship between f582 and the baqaya f581: they might abut or f582 might be on top of f581. The pavement that these fragments of mud bricks must have formed could have extended all the way to the mud brick pavement that had been excavated by the German team from Tuebingen on top of the temple terrace above the primary stairway.

typological reasons for assignment 2012-8-26 jW Because this part of the glacis is quite small and was not removed to sample its constituents, the stratum assigned is an estimate. The only thing we really know is that the EDIII baqaya surface was maintained and kept clean for many centuries after it was built. So, the stratum for the mudbricks must fall between (glacis) and the (overlying accumulation, f570). [Input File: W826jW.j]

notes on time sequencing 2006-9-04 vVE The baqaya f581 and the mudbrick pavement, f582, I assign to phase 1 based on the assumption that there never was any major rebuilding of the baqaya-glacis and it therefore was phase 1 like the revetment wall f569. The mudbrick pavement might be slightly younger than the baqaya or is contemporary and the piece that was foudn is actually the border of a pavement that ran parallel to the stairs up to the temple.
