Description (summary) 2010-02-12 sC Build-up [Input: U212SC2.j]
2010-02-12 sC This stratum is related with natural accumulations that build-up the tell surface below the topsoil layers and related accumulations (these are washed layers below the topsoil layer relative to s5 and s5a). As for the accumulations belonging to s5 and s5a, the layers belonging to s12 are all wind and water-born in nature, and contributed to the build-up of the tell for another meter in depth. These accumulations are characterized by compact areas mixed with patches of soft ones which suggests their temporary exposure to water. While digging these natural layers, lots of pottery sherds have been recovered toghether with bones and q-items; the presence of this archaeological material is however related with the erosion of the tell surface. In fact, there are no evidence -at least for what concerns the information retrieved at the end of the 2006 excavation season in J04- which could suggest that the area where J04 unit was set was in use in this time period (Phase 67-MZA).
