Locus: F6L98:004 Supervisor: D. Herr
Locus type: Architecture
Designation: E-W wall
Start date: 29 Jun, 1987
End date: 29 Jul, 1987
Rationale
Reason: Stones in a line
Top separation: Clear / Bottom separation: Very Clear

Interpretation:
Function: Terrace wall; prob source of much of our tumble
Stratigraphy remarks: The most major terrace wall, used with Walls 6, 14 & 19; was built after 14/19 7 at least one of 14/19's stones was removed to build 4; the stone was replaced by a large boulder; at juncture of walls, 4 has more courses & becomes Wall 46 perhaps to compensate for drop off caused by the original wall 14/19
Locus Date: Persian
