Area A-2 (Fig. 1). The aim in this area was to remove the layer of fallen mud bricks (more than 1 m thick) that had accumulated on the pebble pavement north of the palace and to ascertain how it related to the palace. The excavation was suspended c. 0.2 m above the floor and will be completed during the 2007 season.
