Blocking of the Niche F.454 with pale brown sandy silt bricks and mortar_ unexcavated - CC, 06.05.1999.
Excavated - AK, 23.07.2012:
The blocking consisted of 3 different sorts of bricks from pale brown, via mid brown to orange. The latter was exactly the same as the component of the walls from the VIII settlement level.
The blocking was located in the Niche (F.454) in the southern wall (F.445) of space 176 (B.7), known also as Shrine 8 (level VIII). Taking into consideration the different sizes and colours of the bricks (and mortar) used to stack the niche with, it might be stated that building material was collected/gathered from random and available sources and the activity of blocking the niche might have been realized during ad hoc and demanding circumstances.
