Space Number: 93
|Area: 4040 |
|Within Building Number: 52 |
Mellaart Level: Unassigned at present
Hodder Level: 4040.G
Additional Phase Info: Central group of related buildings based on combination of stratigraphy (abutting relationships) and lithics assemblage dominated by East Gollu dag bifaces and percussion blades.
Lying at the surface of the mound, Sp.93 of B.52 represents the mid phase of the B.52 sequence. Excavated to the latest phase of occupation with NFE (not further excavated).
Prior to the introduction of the Hodder phases Sp.93 of B.521 had been allocated to Mellaart Level VI - V very crudely based on comparison of the material assemblage
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.

North eastern room of B52. It contains four bins aligned against the northern and the eastern walls of the space, with a clay floor on the rest of the space. Acces to the space was made possible through a passage 2186 from the space 91 and very likely through another one from S94 through the partition wall 2032.
This possible passage was not documented since the wall was collapsed at the western end but the presence of one collapsed feature on top of the remains of 2032, could be evidence for a gapin the wall. If that's the case the gap/passage might have had a shelf partly over it. S93 seems to have been a storage room (see feture and unit sheets for the content of the bins) as well as a room for processing the food and making tools. God indication for the latest is the presence of stones with marks on them as well as the long bones (suitable for bone tools) within F.2040.
The bucranium 11944 fallen on the floor could have ben attached to a wall.
Phasing: we , at this stage, could see at least two phases of existence within S93. Arguments for that are:
-blocked (upot a point) passage F. 2186
-fact that the bins are built against wall plaster, clearely added at a later stage
