Text description of view 2006-08-23 vE When the German team from Tuebingen excavated their E-W trench in area B6 to follow the north edge of the apron to the revetment wall, they subsumed what was to become the northern parts of J3 loci k2 and k107. As excavated by us, these loci appear as partial squares, whose east and west baulks extend north roughly two meters to the south edge of the German trench. This photgraph is a detailed view of the south part of the west section of k107 before it was removed. It shows the second apron, f532, and the accumulations which cover it. The accumlation just above the apron, f547, can be discerned; however, those above it to the level of the topsoil, f539 and f540, are unlayered. One can clearly see that the soil was continuously deposited either directly by the wind or by wash of the same type of soil from higher elevations during periods of heavy rain. Also note the lack of pits. Combined, these factors indicate that after the last modification to the temple mound complex (here the second apron, f532) this part of the mound was abandoned (probably in the late Mittani period) and was never re-occupied.
