Text description of view 2008-09-22 jW This photograph is a study of the buildup and use of the west end of the plaza associated with the Mittani remodeling of the temple mound complex (the move west). It was taken to help determine and interpret the stratigraphic sequence. Brickwork f196 was probably associated with the construction of the staircase. Floor f180 (in which tannur f181 and whole jar i32 sat) met the top of the bottom step of the staircase. Thereafter, Mittani floor accumulation, f60 and natural accumulations f58 and f61 built up, occasioning the need to construct successive lines of stones (f49 and f91) to maintain the definition of the plaza. Eventually the sacred function of the plaza ended and a Middle Assyrian accumulation (f57) built up, upon which was built another stone structure, f28 and f193. After abandonment, aeolian accumulations f49, f62 and f18 covered everything. [Input: S922JW.j]
