Chapter Summary

Two research goals were of primary importance in the excavation of Building 600. First, the full exposure of this structure in order to understand its plan, internal room arrangement, and function, and secondly, the determination of the stratigraphic relationship of this structure to the earlier Iron Age occupation at the site. It was decided to excavate Building 600 using the same methods as those employed in Fields A, B and C, where Iron Age buildings were preserved just below top soil. This meant that Field D would have an excavation grid of 6.00 × 6.00 m squares with Squares D1-D10 running south to north and Squares D1-D91 running west to east. The Madaba Plains Project recording system was used during the first season (1991) of excavation in Field D, but the Tall Jawa Project subsequently expanded the system to better document the various features of a Late Antique period building.
