Space Number: 337
|Area: 4040 |
|Within Building Number: 77 |
Mellaart Level: Unassigned at present
Hodder Level: 4040.?G
Additional Phase Info: ?G. Excavated in isolation B.77 is currently not stratigraphically linked to any surrounding structures but poss related to central group of related buildings based on lithics assemblage dominated by East Gollu dag bifaces and percussion blades.
Excavated in isolation B.77 is currently not stratigraphically linked to any surrounding structures.
The current Hodder phasing for B.77 has been determined on its horizontal location within the 4040 Area structures only and very roughly on it's floor horizon relative to B.52 and therefore prefixed with ?. The phase has been introduced to allow some cross query and can change according to analyses results.
Prior to the introduction of the Hodder phases B.77 had been allocated to Mellaart Level VII V as best fit.
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.

Side room of building 77. Access into room is uncertain an truncation by late pit  may have destroyed crawlhole. On the north end of the room is a series of storage bins providing a large volume for storage of grain. Against the south wall is a hearth (w) and a double basin forming an activity area.
The space was destroyed by fire, blackening the paster against the walls. The fire also caused the front of the binsto collapse but the clay fell onto a layer of grain preserving it. Uncertain if bins were empty at the time of abandonment as it is possible that without protection the grain may have been destroyed.
At the time of abandonment a scatter of artifacts were left on the flor including 3 claws of an eagle? Type bird. A numebr of antlers and a cluster of stone working materials around the southern part of the space by the hearth.
