Description:   This pyre was found within an otherwise mostly sterile fill directly under a white floor surface in the southern section of Area IV. It was located ca. 0.50m. east of a similar deposit, Pyre J 2:25. The pots were mixed with heavy concentrations of charcoal and found across an area measuring 0.47-0.50m, east to west, 0.31-0.43m, north to south.
XRF analysis indicated that the lead levels associated with this pyre far exceed typical levels seen in most fill and fill associated with Pyre J 2:25, located just to West.
