Within Building Number: 67
Mellaart Level: Unassigned at present
Hodder Level: North.H
Additional Phase Info: Southern group of related buildings based on combination of stratigraphy (abutting relationships) and lithics assemblage dominated by Nenezi dag pressure flaked blades Limited excavation of Sp.304 of B.67 underlies B.47 and NFE (not further excavated). Prior to the introduction of the Hodder phases Sp.304 of B.67 had been allocated to Mellaart Level IV very crudely based on comparison of the material assemblage but Mellaart levels of buildings/spaces NOT excavated in the 1960s have been removed to allow an independent assessment on phasing. NB/Work in progress. Correct as of date entered or modified.
Space 304 is defined by walls F.2336, 2354, 2355. The infill was sterile and leveled off at a dirty floor. There were two patches of flat dark clay, but the rest was the same above and below, even with the cross section created by the dog burial there was no visible line. Four x-finds were found on the floor of (13429), a flat grind stone, a round grind stone, a flint tool, a large cluster of crystal (now believed to be gypsum), and a flattened round grind stone. These were placed just outside the blocked off crawl hole in wall F.2354. What is believed to have happened is that wall F.2336 began to collapse and the space 304 was backfilled and the crawl hole sealed off, abandoning the space entirely.
