July 25, 1987


Work continued in LM/78-81.  The soil continued to be dark brown with large and small pieces of carbonized material, mostly wood.  The tile fall in L/80-81 continues to be isolated with mestaline.  Bone and pottery were abundant in L/78-79, including a piece of moulded bucchero.  A forno piece was also found in L/78.  Otherwise that area contained large and small plaster pieces and various tile fragments (50:50).

In L/81, a large piece of iron, possibly a crucible was discovered.  It has a hole in the center, filled with dirt.  It will be interesting to see if any pieces of bronze or other metals are attached to the inner surface.  Both this piece of iron and the forno fragment came from the same level, but 3 m apart.  Aside from this discovery, L/80-81 reminaed a dry area, with very little pottery or bone discovered, .5 latte box.  Tile and plaster were also minimal, .75 cassetta-

In L/78, an impasto bowl was found and

dirt around it isolated to it could be photographed.  WIthin it were found dark brown soil, broken pieces of the body and rim, bone and carbonized wood.  A sample was taken for c-14 dating and analysis.

A very light piece of burnt material from L/81 was also brought down for observation.  It was found in the vicinity to many pieces of unburnt plaster.

Staight edged plaster with reed marks was minimal.  Pottery finds were representational-bucchero, impasto, fine gray ware, and coarse ware.  Bone was abundant thorughout the level.

The soil remains dark brown throughout, with some areas, especially L/78 and L/81 filled with carbon.






The impasto bowl was photographed and lifted.

The tile fall in L/80-81 was also photographed.
