this material contrasts notably with the pottery found further down the slope in meters A-H/68-70.  Very little of the pottery showed any sign of burning.  In addition, of particular importance were a number of impasto and coarseware fragments discovered in meters ä/68-70 which appear to be quite early in date.  These fragments were put aside for additional study in 1989.  All other pottery from T-27 ä- Ã¥/68-70 was consolidated for storage in A. Collins Book III Representative Pottery Box IV, Grids ä/ Ã¥-68-70.
