Rectangle 8, grid E 1-4

July 28, 1971

Photographs taken of the present cut and of the crosswall between Rectangle 7 and 8.  It was decided that the crosswall should be cleaned in its entire length and then drawn by the architect.

The last cut in Rectangle 8 was finished.  It seems that the soil there has been much distrubed by the building of the upper structure.  The profile of the pise wall shows that the foundation stones reach almost up to the pavement of the upper structure.  Only a thin curving line of carbon (?) separates them from

str. A.  In that part there are no remains of the white or reddish plaster which was so characteristic of the earlier part of the mud wall.

On the eastern side of the cut, along E1, which is defined by the eastern foundation wall of the upper building, it became apparent that the ledge of on erow of stones which was noticed earlier, has now disappeared or collapsed.

The southern side of the cut ends with the crosswall between Rectangle 8 and 9.  This wall is very poorly preserved.  Its outline is ascertained by two stones at the eastern end in grid E1.

In E 4 the wall juts into rectangle 8 with a somewhat slanted line.  This line might indicate the actual outline of the wall of the upper building.  Perhaps it preserves the outline of a wall from the lower building?

The crosswall between Rectangles 7 and 8 was cleaned in its entire length.  The edges of the wall are outlined by stones and edges of pan tiles.  The wall rests immediately above the pise wall as can be seen on the photographs and in the drawing.
