Description (summary) 2010-02-14 sC Minor use of area after bf^2 in J06 [Input: U214SC2.j]
2010-02-14 sC This stratum is related with a period of minor activities in J04 unit due to the brickfall bf^2 that interested not only the portion of the tell mound where J06 unit was set but the south portion of J04 unit as well (cfr. s14c and s15). Within this stratum J04 unit was abandonded or not in use, probably as a consequence of the fall of the mud-brick structures located in the south-east portion of J06 unit which interested partially the southern portion of J04 unit as well. In J04 (on the basis of the evidence drawn from the excavations carried out in the 2006) there is only one feature which is cleary relate with the brickfall bf^2; this is related with the topmost portion of an accumulation rich in brick fragments, f121 (which, in its top 70cm, is the same as J6f53 and J6f55). In locus k74, a feature characterized by a hard and compact surface, f64, is most probably part of the topmost surface of bf^2, and is therefore part of what in J06 has been labeled as bf^1 (i.e., the top surface of brickfall bf^2; the label J06 bf^1 has been assigned to those features that, due to a long exposure of the bricks to water and sun, are brickmelt accumulations; for more details on the respective designations, please, cfr. J06 bf^1, bf^2, and related features). The brickfall bf^2, is thought to be the collapse of structures or small buildings located on the east of J06 unit and probably connected to the residencial area C2; their collapse is though to have took place from east to west and, consequently, to have covered the area where J06, J07 and partially J02 units are today located (cfr. J06 s16). [Input: U214SC2.j]
