|the main floor of the building 58 which has many bone clusters on it.|
A number of floor layers were excavated revealing a small number of features - small pits.
A number floor layers were removed from the main floor space 227: F2129 in 2006. The upper levels were very truncated, but with depth the layers become more continuous and easier to define. 2129 was excavated dwon to unit 13239 a plaster surface that seems to stretch across the entire floor - though not fully exposed. A packing layer above 13239 = 13230 also seemed to stretch across the entire floor and produced a small ?animal figurine from against the North wall.
A number of floor layers 13219 down to 13239 (and possibly continuing) dipped down into feature 2251. At floor 13239 none of the platforms in B58 had been released ie: all the above layers butted up against the platforms. However, the hearth F.2122, wall F.2001 and ridge F2193 are all stratigraphically later than at least 13239 - and probably many layers later - and need to be removed before further excavation in F.2129. Three small pits were revealed at various layers whilst excavating F.2129 see features 2250, 2252 and 2253 for details. All of the layers seemed to be roughly the same depth, but, like the entire building, sloped to the South.
