Continuous east-west boarding over pottery (1071) and stone vases (1038)-(1044); under the potsherds 1047 and the copper 1058. [ILLUSTRATION] Along the western edge is north-south wood (see also No. 1020 and 1022). From this north-south wood to the visible end of the east-west wood (disappears under pottery) is 72 cm (to east wall 152 cm). This appears to have been a box or tray in which 1047, 1058 were lowered into the chamber and thrown with its contents on top of 1071. Removed wood in section a, b, c.
