Observations runs parallel to 1058, but relationship between the two is unclear due to the positioning of 1135, which runs perpendicular to both. The norhtern end is constructed of smaller rocks but there are bigger rocks about a meter south and extend to excavation limit.

Interpretation While the relationships among 1058, 1135, 1162 are not clear, it seems that 1058 is earlier than 1135 and 1162 and stops at the intersection of 1135, which came either around the same time or later than 1058. 1162 seems to have come later than both of these as it abuts 1135. Because of the corner intersection, 1058 and 1135 seem to be part of the same structure with 1162 extending to them. Based on an overlapping feature of rocks at the intersection, 1162 seems to be later than 1058 and 1135. The construction of 1162 resembles 1058 demonstrates the possibility that they were built for similar purposes. The construction style of 1135 is different from both. There seems to be a possibility that 1162 is connected to a previously excavated wall to the south beyond our excavation limit. On july 14th the wall was excavated. It definitely postdates the construction of wall SU 1058

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
