Definition 2006-09-21 sC accumulation [Input: Q921SC.j]
Description (summary) 2006-09-21 sC f50 has been assigned to the surface where f10 sits in k71. Since f50 was not removed, we cannot provide at present a proper definition for this type of accumulation: however, f50 was covered by a natural accumulation (f7) and due to the fact that in the squares around k71 and within this locus we have found -at the same elevation- features which are natural accumulations, we suppose that f50 could be a natural accumulation. The nature of this accumulation, however, will be better defined when we will investigate this feature in the next future. f50 follows the slope of the tell mound, and therefore there is a difference in elevation between the top elevation of the feature in the N and S portion of the locus. [Input: Q921SC.j]

Notes on recovery 2006-09-21 sC The type of contact between f10 and f50 is not clear at the moment, and can be cleared only by further investigation in the locus. At present, we suppose that f10 rests in f50. [Input: Q921SC.j]
2010-02-12 sC f50 was covered by some soil (mostly wind-blown soil) since this locus was already dug in 2001. Since there was just some soil and plenty of modern rubbish within the locus, we proceed by cleaning the whole locus just removing the accomulation formed in the last 2 years without assigning any feature number, since this 'between-season' accomulation was few mm in the N portion of k70 and aprox. 2cm in the S portion of the locus (close to the S section) and no pottery was found while removing this thin layer. After the cleaning we just re-expose the surface already exposed in 2001, to which we assign f50. After the cleaning, f50 appeared to be a very compact and hard surface, due probably to its exposure to water, probably in the last 2 years. f50 seems to have a very fine texture (clayish) and is light grey in colour. [Input: U212SC.j]
2010-02-12 sC The bottom of f50 has not been reached, since we never dug in this locus. Concernig the top elevation, it changes from the N to the S portion of the locus, since f50 follows the slope of the tell mound; in k71 there are aprox. 20-40cm of difference in elevation between the top elevation of the feature in the N and the top elevation of the feature in the S portion of the locus.

Stratigraphic reasons of assignment 2010-03-10 sC Assignment based on elevation. f50 is located below f10 and probably on top of a glacis layer. f50 is cleary a compact surface that follows the slope of the tell. Although we did not remove this accumulation it is likely that the glacis layer exposed in k72 can be exposed below f50; excavation carried out in J03 and J02 Units indicate that the Apron rests on top of the glacis [Input: U310SC.j]
