|Huge grey bricks bonded with brownish - red mortar. 10253 is thr lower most course of bricks and it is placed on a layer of mortar (make up). Clearly the gry bricks were placed directly (delibaretly ) on top of an earlier wall , built with red bricks . On top of the first course bricks there was an animal skeleton (cluster) 10252|
The interperetation now of all this units is that the western row of bricks are part of a wall , while the rest of them are just making a sort of a raised platform.
I dont know about platform (it is very likely that thats the correct interperation) but I'm convinced that the western row of bricks is a wall . , because just that continues towards south (wall 10232) on the other side of the grave cut. 10226. Wall 10232 is very wall like , as well as the western row of this feature. This means that while the other bricks of this feature have different alignements on different courses , the western row is consistent and very solid.
10231 the second course of bricks has a different layout than the one below (excent for the wall bit) and it leaves an area with no bricks in the middle (10229)
10220 the upper most course of bricks has an area with no bricks in the middle , but on adifferent layout than 10229. This upper one is called 10228.
We know for sure that 10220 brick layout. Is actually an other face of the building since floors in space 237 come against bricks 10231 and 10253, but bricks 10220 cover partly the floors.
While in the southern and western side of it the feature is well preserved , on the northern side , beyond gave cut 10256 it is more eroded becoming just half a brick thick.
