|text description of view
||This photograph documents the depositional history of this part of the BA temple mound as seen from the west baulk of k13. Moving in reverse order one sees topsoil, f97, several layers of natural accumulation, f104, f107, f114, f117, overlaying two layers, f120, f121 which follow the slope of the baqaya surface of the original mound, f109. More likely than not these surfaces correspond to the wahal surface, f152, and the layer covering it, f151, in the locus aadjacent to the west, k23. The pit, a5, consists of 3 features; the cut, f128, a top layer of fill, f122, and a bottom layer, f127, which may be the top of the fill for the entire BA temple mound. One can see that the pit was cut into the Early Dynastic period's baqaya layer, f109, was thereafter filled, f122, and later was completely covered by f120, and f121, which we date to the Mittani period. Although no directional or horizontal references are shown, the photo was taken looking west and the pit has a diameter of roughly 100 cm. For reference purposes, two stones, f112, f117, part of a4, are shown.
