Mudbrick architecture

The only mud bricks that were found in situ are related to bin a2. f161, f162 and f170 constitute parts of the bin’s borders, in the form of 1 and 3 rows of bricks. This structure a2 was covered with plastic and back dirt, as it does not require special conservation techniques. The other mud structures that were found in J4 are the four tannurs (f112, f152, f163, f165), all of which were not removed, and were covered with back dirt as well.
