Yep, just a dry pack mud job. They do make chicken war for plastering that is heavier gauge than regular chicken war. We use to use it on huge mud floors in Southern Cal. Can't say I've ever seen that heavy gauge war anywhere but in Cally. Like JB said, they forgot the tar paper.

Steve, dry pack is a poor mix of cement, just damp enough to hold it together. It doesn't get as hard as a concrete slab but it doesn't have to. Being a dry mix, it's much easier to level out that soupy concrete.
