Description (summary) 2010-02-14 sC Within this stratum, in J04 unit were built different structures, either in mud-brick or stones. These structures, togheter with two tannur installations found on top of two mud-brick walls, are concentrated in few loci (k62, k71, k73 and k83) and indicate that this area of the tell mound was in use in this time period. The nature of the activities carried out in these loci, however, is not clear as yet, since the structures exposed were in very damaged conditions and no particular features have been found while digging in these loci. Furthermore, most of these structures have not been completely exposed (one reason being that most of them have been found at the end of the 2006 excavation season). We can imagine, however, that the activities carried out in this portion of the tell mound, could have been connected either with the sacral area either with small buildings located south, where the J06 unit was set in the 2008 excavation season. It is thought, in fact, that small mud-brick structures or small buildings were possibly located in the south-east extent of J06 unit, although, these are -at present- represented only by their collapse (given by J06 bf^2, and partially by J06 bf^1, please, cfr. description of bf^1 and bf^2 in J06 unit). The supposed structures in J06 unit were dated, on the basis of the pottery recovered, to the Mittani period. The most-complete structure found in J04 unit, instead, the so called 'bin' installation (f93, a2), was found empty, thus the function of this structure is, up to present, unclear. [Input: U214SC2.j]
