text description of view 2005-9-03 gM In order to explore the nature of the interface between the monumental wall, f11, and the material behind it in the few days of excavation remaining in season MZ18, we dug only in the south half of k104, designating the "reduced" locus k105. This view shows the result of the first day's excavation. On the right side one can see the north face of f11, whose stones are covered with a layer of bakhia, f80, a local virgin soil, to regulate the flow of water from the layers in the mound behind to the fully exposed south face. We assume that the bakhia allows water to trickle through, thus assuring that the mud mortar between the stones of the wall does not wash away. On the left of the photo, one can see a vertical layer of compacted fill, f70, in which is imbedded several horizontal lenses of bricky material, f69. [Input File: P904gM5.j]
