T-26 1982 Summary of the Cuts

A summary of the cuts, as presented in MT IV for T-26 1981, will not be included here for the following reasons:

  1. All of the cuts are above the "floor" discovered this year and should all contain material no earlier than the "floored" building.
  2. The "floor" was exposed at varying depths from the surface and it would be misleading to classify one cut as similar to another based on their depth from the surface.  The two cuts, though both at 30 cm for example, could be vastly different since one may be just above the floor and another may be quite a distance higher than the "floor" beneath it.

In place of the "summary of the cuts," the inventory summary with its map can be helpful.  Also, detailed description of the soil is given in the daily reports of MT V and MT VI .

Keep in mind that all the finds and soil of T-26 1982 is believed to be (and known to be in most cases) above the "floor," and therefore it is believed that the material found is contemporary with the building associated with the "floor."
