There seems to be no burial lid on top of it. A hook and a buckle made of bone were found on top of the burial, but not directly associated with it. There were many scattered human bones on top of the cut and also in the rest of the space 87.
This feature conatins two different layers of infill. The top one had all these scattered bones (unit #8375). The second one (unit #8385) contained the soil directly above the skeleton (unit #8409 and #8410) and around the skeletons.
Unit # 8409 represents earlier burial in this cut that was disturbed by later burial, unit #8410. Both were in a flexed position despite of #8409 being partly disturbed.
There were many animal burrows in this area that also disturbed the burials.
Space 87 is a small part of the room which extends towards wes and goes beyond the tent line. That is why features in this space cannot be clear in terms of realtionships to other features in the room.
The burial cut seems to be under a platform, according to the nature of plaster layers and packing around it, but we can't be sure about that.
