2. Identification


Roster Date Author Record
Description (summary) 2008-08-13 jW The laminar accumulation under accumulation, f128, in k33. It has a moderately hard surface, but readily separates from the layer of soil immediately below, f137, when struck with the small pick and troweled. It was softer and more granular than the accumulation above, f128. From the east section of the western half-square, it can be seen that a small N-S strip of of both f135, and floor accumulation, f137 was removed near that section earlier during excavation of accumulation, f128. [Input file: S813JW.j]
2008-08-14 jW This feature differed markedly from those above and below. The laminations above it, f128, were relatively soft, greyish brown in color, and contained a mixture of silt, sand and pebbles. f128 could be removed with light strokes of the large pick. The floor accumulation below, f137, was very hard, had no sand or pebbles, and was very gray. When picked with a small pick it came of in rectangular chunks. It had surface sherds. This accumulation, f135, was noticeably brown. Although laminar, the individual layers were very thin and contained only silt. [Input file: S814JW.j]

3. Stratigraphy


Roster Date Author Record
Argument 2008-08-14 jW In a meeting with the unit staff and fAB, gB contrasted the depositional process between laminations (which were found above this feature) and a laminar floor (which describes this surface. Laminations are deposited when water flow is blocked and debris remains after evaporation. The resulting surface is not regularly used. On the other hand, a laminar outdoor floor is formed when dust and other debris settles on it and is compressed layer by layer as people walk on it. [Input file: S814JW.j]
