2. Identification


Roster Date Author Record
Description (summary) 2008-08-13 jW A very hard, dense floor accumulation above the escarpment, f41, in k33. It contains sherds and rises in elevation from east to west, just opposite to what we had predicted from the parts of f41 which are visible in k22. Along the east part of the west half baulk, it can be seen in section since we accidentally removed several centimeters of it along that baulk as we were excavating f128 with the big pick. Because of the rise to the west instead of the expected fall, we will excavate it very carefully with the small pick on S814. As this layer was well-sealed, hopefully the sherds will tell us something about when it was in service. [Input file: S813JW.j]

3. Stratigraphy


Roster Date Author Record
Argument 2008-08-13 jW In deciding that this layer was not an escarpment but a floor accumulation associated with wall, f41, and its escarpment, f74, previously excavated in k22 to the south, we made four observations: First, as we excavate accumlation, f135, above it, we can see that pottery sherds are embedded in the surface of f137, which one would not expect in an escarpment. Second, according to rE, supervisor of unit J1, this layer resembles hard accumulations above the highest escarpment in J1. Third, escarpment, f74, touches stones of wall, f41, but here, f137 seems to cover stones. Fourth, we expect that an escarpment would fall away to the west from the stone installation, f126. From what we see so far, this feature, f137, does not. [Input file: S813JW.j]
Harmonization 2009-09-01 jW When this feature was originally excavated in MZ21, it was observed that it was unusual in that it sloped down from west to east. Further excavation in MZ22 revealed that downslope was the west side of a gully that was cut into f137 by fast-flowing water. A number of such gullys are in this and adjacent loci in many strata. Overall, f137 slopes up from west to east as it meets the revetment wall, f41. [Input file: T901JW1.j]
