Space Number: 112
|Area: South |
|Within Building Number: 50 |
Interpreted Mellaart Level: VII
Hodder Level: South.?M
Additional Phase Info: The “?” indicates that it is not part of the direct stratigraphic Hodder sequence. As a result its relationship in the Hodder phasing is determined by a series of abuttments and by taking into account its location in the Mellaart levels.
Sp.112 of B.50 was mostly excavated in the 1960s as E.VII.9 and overlies Sp.162.

MELLAART SHRINE 9
Northern part of the space 112, 2/3 of which has been excavated in 1997 by the present project. In effect the area dealt with here is the northern platform on Mellart's 1964 dig plan, which is bounded to the south by two parts. Floors were badly truncated, wheathered and preserved only in parches, which makes reconstruction more difficult.
At present it is clear that a series of burials preceded the removal of the parts in 1703 and 1705. First came a double burial of a man ( 10840) and a sheep (10839) set into a very deep cut (10811- F1702) Next burials 1711 and 1710 were put in and finally 1709 disturbed both these burials. In that process the skull of 1711 seems to have been lifted. It was found in the fill of the post retrival pit 1705.
It is not clear ......... (can't read this part) ....... of the two floor sequences ( 10806 and 10801) this should be correlated.
The internal support walls that were put in half way through the sequence in the part of sp 112 excavated in 1997 were lacking in this area, so space 112 in the north was bounded by wall 267 to the west, 1701 to the north and F.259 to the east.
NB below the floor layer the fill that was put in between the level 7 walls of is referred to as belonging to space 112, but this "preconstruction" space 112 considerably larger ( including space 231) than the " occupation" space 112.
