Interpretation SU 1450 is a small wall just to the east of the entrance to the house in area B. It covers wall 1350 and therefore represents one of the more recent phases. It appears to match, in construction technique and rough alignment, wall SU 1453 to the north. The tow are separated by a gap of ca. 90 cm, which may represent the threshold of the entrance to room 6. However, the orientation of wall 1453 appears slightly off in relation to 1450.
