Notes on recovery 2001-09-05 okk This vessel was the first excavated, a large storage type vessel which only appeared to be the the central part of a vessel. After clearing out the dirt from inside of it and from around the outside we saw that in fact it was the rim and part of the neck of a large open vessel, with the rim sitting and slightly embedded in floor f26. The depression made by the rim is still visible in the floor. [Input: L905okk.j]

Notes on function 2001-09-05 okk It is possible that this piece of broken vessel could have been in secondary use as a pot-stand. Peter Feldsner suggested that this is a common use for a vessel which is broken and then cut around the shoulder, embedded in the earth and plastered. This vessel is quite large, at least 50cm in rim diameter. If this was a pot stand the pot which would have been placed in it would have been even larger than this, and as the rim of the vessel was in front of a doorway, it would have completely blocked the doorway. At this time this still appears to be the most plausible explanation, although it could also have been used for storage of some type. [Input: L905okk.j]
