Daily notes about recovery of elements 2001-06-11 lR Continued excavating f3 and a complete mud brick was found in the center of a1 with a long linear depression along the face of the brick. The ceramic vessel i2 is still in the ground and is presumed that we still have another 15-20cm left to excavate until we reach the base of the vessel. At this level we are hoping to also find the floor of this structure, since i2 ceramic jar must sit on the floor. [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-06-20 fAB In k5 we are following the floor f51, to determine its relationship to a3 and to the East we are digging the baulk to find the corner of a3. [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-06-25 lR It appears that there is another floor under f51 approximately 10 to 12cm below. We also have two large stones associated with this floor; this is f63 and one stone that has been removed but a depression is still visible and you can see f51 sloping down. The workmen removed the remainder of the section on the North side of a1-f3 and found underneath bricky material. [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-06-26 fAB The next step in k5 will be the removal of the brickfall a4 in this locus. [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-07-08 lR removing brickfall [Input: L708LR.j]
2001-07-25 lR In k5, we have another pit under a1. We have removed all of a1 except for the portion within the North baulk. The material under this aggregate is the interface between accumulation of the structure and the beginning of the pit, which is also seen in A12 North section. [Input: L728LR.j]
2001-07-26 lR In k5 we see a pottery lense, which is quite thick in section, and this might have been the same case in k2 if it was seen in section. In k5 we are still excavating the pit and are coming down on the sherd lense f178, which we are, using black garbage bags since there is too much pottery to collect it in the normal sherd bags. Since we know that all the pottery was dumped at one time, there is no need to separate the q-lots and thus garbage bags will hold the pottery until they are analyzed. A large stone was left pedestaled in the Western area of the locus a few centimeters above the pottery lense. This stone is quite large and will probably take several hours to remove. In the East section of k5 reddish brown bricks are visible but they are too scattered to form a wall. Something separates the two pits in k6,k5 and it is located within the baulk. Is it possible that a retaining mud brick structure lies in the baulk? [Input: L728LR.j]
Strategy (projected or implemented) 2001-06-09 lR we plan to excavate inside a1 diagonally until we reach the first floors; leaving half unexcavated. Once we have found the floor then we will excavate the remaining soil. [Input: L630TR.j]

Notes on time sequencing 2001-07-23 sV The Khabur pottery found inside the k5 pit helps us understand the chronology for the whole area of A16. The Khabur sherds from the pit, presumably belong to phase 5a, which is below the floor f29 of structure a2. [Input: L818LR.j]
