|12.8. 2006: Wall of mudbricks, obviously in two rows (W row laid NS, E row laid EW-oriented, as visible in plan 06/924), bound together by mortar. Plaster coats the wall on the E side (13726) and on the West. Towards the north it forms a kind of butress, but its N extent is|
4.7. 2007, TEB+HSL: Part of one layer of mudbricks were accidentally removed. In clearing away remaining top soil areas, a layer was exposed and 'followed', which subsequently turned out to be a hard surface (second layer of mudbricks?) underneath the very 'friable' mudbricks. The remaining undisturbed mudbricks have been left and the area generally brushed down until further discussion. A photo, fortunately, was taken before the catastrophe occurred.
14.8.2008, AWH: Like seen in 2006, the wall has two rows of mudbricks. By taking out the roomfill of space 310 we found a second layer of plaster behind plaster 13726 which was named 17249. It ends 30cm deeper than 13726 and there are indications of red colour on its surface.
26.8.2009 JMR: When further excavating the rrom fill in space 310, we noticed that wall F.2408 had already been undercut last year. Under it there is a layer of fill U.18353 and underneath an older wall F.3313 with roughly the same orientation - this belongs to an older phase of Sp.310. Total preserved height 0.9m.
22.8.10 JMR: F.2408 forms the northern limit of Sp. 310. It consists of dark grey bricks and pale yellow mortar. Bricks visible in plan. Feature cut in section in 2010 (see photos) for stratigraphical clarification and upper part removed for stability and safety. Height indicated above (ca.50 cm) is original height. Wall was standing on fill and an earlier wall F. 3313 (see 09/254).
Dismantling of upper part of 2008 (22.8.2010) was documented in photos, samples were taken.
Bricks visible in plan - dark mortar used for vertical filling. Bricks seem 38+37-65 cm, but disturbed by rodents. A gap of 4-5 cm separates 2408 and 5056. Might be binding into F.2427 and 5058. As bricks seem stacked in those corners brick contained quite large fragments of animal bone, pot, shell and burnt plaster.
