Text description of view 2008-09-22 jW This final photograph shows the state of k32 at the end of excavations. Although this season the primary purpose was to improve sightlines to the monumental staircase and revetment wall from the viewing platform shown on the upper right, in future seasons we planned to excavate it to learn more about the escarpment, 74, to the earliest wall system, f41, which lays below the laminations, f167. (The laminations probably represent the material from mudbrick and pise buildings on the surrounding hillsides that went out of use and disolved due to weathering. At the time the monumental staircase was built, f137, was the surface of the plaza to the west of it, and covered f74. However, over time it was cut by a gully, f168. The natural accumulation, f136, started just below the topsoil and continued to the laminations. It is primarily post-abandonment accumulation of aeolian soil hardened by standing water.
