Space Number: 328
|Area: South |
|Within Building Number: 75 |
Mellaart Level: Unassigned at present
Hodder Level: South.P
Additional Phase Info: Main spine. This space is part of the stratigraphic spine that forms the dating project sequence. The spine has been derived by direct stratigraphic relations as far as possible but does include some abutting relationships.
Space 328 is a room of B.75 that overlies Space 367 and Sp.329 sealed by B.68 and B.65.
Prior to the introduction of the Hodder phases Sp.328 had been allocated to Mellaart Level IVB and a review of the phasing (S.Farid Archive Report 2008) had placed the phasing as more akin to Level V.
Mellaart levels of buildings/spaces NOT excavated in the 1960s have been removed to allow an independent assessment on phasing.

Defined by walls F.2623, F.2643 and F.2624 and the possibly the raised area to its immediate north. The western extent of this room was truncated by a combination of natural erosion of the mound and previous excavation works. The room was probably originally rectangular measuring c4.5m from north to south. Within the structure an oven was located against the southern wall of the room. To the north of this were a plaster basin and a sequence of plastered floors, which may have been the base of a series of bins to the north of the space. There were also some residual structures that may have been associated with a platform on the western edge, although these were very badly damaged by the truncation along this side. To the northwest of the space were five small open hearths, (average diameter 0.50m), which all sat in shallow concave depressions, some containing residual fuel. Most of them were in use on their own, being sealed variously by different floor surfaces. Three burials were recovered from the early building sequence.
