Comment on the phasing of the object
Phasing Comment:
The West extension of trench E is also ambiguous but appears at -3m to have contained 'bread ovens' of Halaf period levels. No further contextual information is available with no mention of the bread ovens in association with anything artefactual. A child burial is mentioned at -3m but with no mention of associated amulets (except a flint knife).
