Definition 2010-03-01 sC wall [Input: U301SC.j]
Description (summary) 2010-03-01 sC f170 has been assigned to a portion of a mud-brick wall running (with a SW-NE andament) located in the Sout-eastern corner of k73, as visible in v104 or v73h. While scraping the top surface and the side-face of the wall, several bricks with the mortar between the joints was noticed; the wall is made of three row of bricks (light brown and reddish in colour) and grey thick mortar in between.

Notes on recovery 2010-03-01 sC This wall was noticed during the 2006 excavation season while removing f93, the accumulation within locus k73; however, we did not clarifyed its limits when we stop digging in this locus. Up to present, it is unclear whether this is part of a wall or part of the brickfall bf^2. The east section of k73, as visible in view v101, shows clearly some complete bricks lying in a oblique way, noticed while digging. Their orientation indicate that they could have been part of a fallen structure, and could possibly belong to f170 or a structure associated with f170. f170, although is only parially preserved, seems however to be in its original location, and this seems to corroborate the idea that in locus k72 and k73 in Phase 65-MZA (in substratum s16b-c) several mud-brick structures were in use in J04 unit. Wall f170 is located at the same elevation as the bin (f93) and the wall north to the bin (f161-f162) and the tannurs within k72 (f112, f152): all these structures form a2. [Input: U301SC.j]
2010-03-07 sC The real bottom of f170 has not been reached, since we stop digging in this locus. Therefore, the bottom reported is related with the lower elevation reached in this locus during this excavation season; it has been taken where the lowest brick of wall f170 was visible and does not correspond to the real bottom of the feature.
