|Max 11 courses of mudbrick forming a zig zag wall; short NS part in NE, turns west and runs EW for 1.4m then turns south.|
Some variation in materials used but mortar appears constant.
Lower 3 courses initially built as EW link between walls F3000 and D3001. The remainder of the wall was then built above with the EW portion slightly overhanging lower courses on the N side. This left part of these bricks jutting out, which is what F2916 was built upon.
F2917 reinforces division between North and South originally defined by plaster and core (16027)(16030) linking F3000+ F3001.
Wall built in two stages, same mortar, same build- different actions: 1st blocking/ linking of F3000+F3001, then 2nd, building of main wall structure.
