XIII. Conclusion


The excavation of T-83 has given mixed results.  The indications of heavy erosion in this trench (small well-worn fragments of terracotta, dark color and loose consistency of soil) and the formations of the bedrock suggest that the remains of any man-made features in this area would be scant.  No features were found.  What was originally thought might be a pathway composed of small stones (bottom of locus 10 ) turned out to be erosional wash.  Also, only loci 6 , 15 and 16 can be firmly attributed to levels contemporaneous with the ancient phases of the site.  What was most surprising was the relative lack of material remains, even in loci 6 , 15 and 16 .  This suggests that little activity took place in this area which would have left

archaeological traces.  Further excavation in the surrounding areas would help to clarify the situation.
