Context Title: LT     
Context Name (Excavation): LT     
Context Description: The excavation abbreviation LT is recorded on only one artifact from season 3. The abbreviation probably stands for Lower Town or something to that effect since this area is found outside the walls of Ur, about 800 meters southwest of the ziggurat. Woolley sent a crew to excavate here for one day in season 3, uncovering partial remains of a small building, but little else. The building was never published and the only record of it is in a report dated November 15, 1924: "A small gang were set to test the character of a site lying some nine hundred yards SW of the Ziggurat, in low ground, where Mr. Gadd had remarked large bricks of a type unusual at Ur and possibly of Sargonid date. One day's work sufficed for this spot; a small building was found here, but it had been denuded by weather below floor level, nor was there anything left to indicate its period; the work was therefore abandoned."
