|Area: Bach |

|Location: NW quadrant of space 88 |
|Grid X: 1053.1 Grid Y: 1183.27|
|After removing 3rd/4th floor in space 88 a bin-like structure appeared (unit #6240) in the NW quadrant of the space. It consisted of a bricky hard edge with whitish plaster visible at the junction of this bin edge and north wall (F. 1026).|
Underneath the brown clay edge of the bin there was a clear shape of white bin wall with the white floor. In the center of the bin/basin a layer of reddish (burnt?) soil and occasional lenses of ashy deposit were revealed.
This feature goes under the platform (F. 165) and due to this it was truncated.
Within the bricky soil that was on top of the white bin wall a micromammal skeleton was found (x1, unit #6240).
First plaster floor of the bin was removed with unit #8499 (PHOTO: 20020626_JPQ_001/007). Below this, there was a layer of packing of a reddish to yellowish brown colour, with small lumps of salts and charcoal.
With unit #8527 2nd plaster floor and packing below it were removed. Packing contained micromammal bones, and phytoliths were clearly visible on the surface on which the bin was lying.
To the east of the bin hard packing (unit #8505) lies on the same surface as the bin.
