The inner side of the small structure preserved under the agger at agger 4and 6 (grid M to S) turned up. Thsi structure, whose floor level is difficult to establish, was covered by yellowish-brown soil containing many tile fragments. A floor level may exist at M-5, about 15cm below the preseved surface of the foundation, h harder soil occurs. The tiles rest above this level. Howecer, the small foundation running N-S (at the edge fo the agger dike) which appears to run under the majorĀ  walls of an earlier structure. The floor level may belong to it, the wall, rather than the later structure.

The soil at R-S 5 was found to be a dark sil, burned heavily, with much redish orange. Within this layer, level with

the above mentioned floor level, many tile fragments, also heavily burned appeared. We followed the burned soil andit appears to be a conscious fill. Probably earlier that the preseved western wall, which runs the entire length of the west wall. ( ). This fill (?) rests on an irregular layer of heavily burned soil which will not be removed. Within the fill (?) no figured TC fragments have been found. Thus it may be from debris of buildings which were destroyed when the large complex was built.

(p.156 insert

over 30 boxes of tiles were dumped, the major part from the burned layer discussed p.157)
