Description:   Pyre in House T, Room 1, Layer 5-6 (RSY=Pyre 3).
First quarter 4th. c. B.C.
Artifacts, bone, and cinders in pit in floor sequence. The pyre was found in digging layer 7, probably the floor associated with the second phase of the house. The stratigraphy above it was disturbed, and the pit may have been dug from a higher level. The hard red earth under the pyre indicates that it was burnt in situ, but a few centimeters of earth between the floor of the pit and the vessels suggests vessels were cleaned out and then thrown back in.
