back 20 back

The foundations of many houses were constructed on top of massive mud brick platforms such as this one eroding from the edge of the mound along the major east-west street dividing HR and VS areas. The size of large mud bricks used for the construction of such platforms is 10 x 20 x 40 cm (a ratio of 1:2:4). In the background is a partially exposed platform with fired brick fragments and pottery still covering the surface.
