UM Area, Massive Mud Brick Platform and Street 91

The UM excavations conducted by Dr. G. F. Dales in 1964-65 exposed a massive mud brick platform that was used to raise a group of brick buildings several meters above the street level which was seen in the foreground. The street was approximately seven meters wide extending north south along the edge of HR Area at plain level. Looking south, it is clear that some buildings were located to the west of the street, but most structures have been eroded to plain level, which is seen in the background.
