Notes on labeling 2010-01-16 sC We are aware that a baulk, being part of the accumulations dug in a given square, should be dug stratigrafically in order to individuate also in this portion of the locus the features found while digging the square. However, when we Removed the E baulk of k73 we decided not to excavated this portion of the locus stratigraphically; we thus assigned a feature number (f48, being aware that, as such, f48 is an an 'artificial' feature) to represent all the accumulations found within this portion of the locus and in order to keep track of the pottery and of possible items or q-items recovered while removing the baulk.

Description (summary) 2006-08-24 pC This feature number has been assigned to the eastern baulk of k73. f48 presents a blocky and very compact consistence, it is characterized by a fine texture and by the presence of roots; it is a bit dusty when removed. [Input: Q826PC.j]
2010-01-16 sC This feature number has been assigned to the E baulk of k73. The feature consists, stratigraphically, f3, f6, f9, and f13 i.e., the features previously dug within this locus. f3, f6, f9, and f13 are all natural accumulations and are all very similar in nature among them, being wind and water-born accumulations.

Argument 2010-01-16 sC Being f48 -stratigraphically- the sum of all the features dug in k73 (it consists of f3, f6, f9, and f13), and, as such, an 'artificial' feature, we will not have a contact association between f48 and other features: we will take into consideration only the features dug within k73 and correlate them with features of neighbouring loci on the basis of the(ir) elevation and contact association. [Input: U116SC.j]
Notes on recovery 2010-01-16 sC f48 was not excavated stratigraphically but all the q-items, pottery sherds and bone fragments have been collected in different q-lots. While studying this material must be kept in mind that it comes from different accomulations since k73 consists of f3, f6, f9, and f13, the features dug within this locus previously.

Stratigraphic reasons of assignment 2010-03-10 sC Assignment based on elevation and nature of accumulation. f48 is the N baulk of k73. It consists of f3, f6, f9, f13 and f55. Most of these features are natural accumulations which contributed to the build -up of tell mound; f55, instead belongs to s12a, since material culture have been found within its soil matrix.
