PG/1232 This death pit is so near PG/1237 and at almost the same depth that Woolley wondered if the two might actually be one. There is a partial mudbrick wall separating the two that may have been placed to wall off an earlier grave struck by the later, however. Because he could find no tomb chamber associated with PG/1232, Woolley was inclined to place it with PG/1237, but that death pit has no chamber either and they likely are two separate graves. Which is the oldest is difficult to ascertain from the evidence. PG/1232 seems mostly to have contained animals, i.e. oxen and a cart, but it was badly preserved and in a similarly disturbed state to the likes of PG/580, which also had few identifiable human remains and no discernible chamber.
