July 26, 1991


Clearing with brush and mestalina continued in meter J/12 to a depth of ca. 80 cm. The soil here was dark brown in color and of a very dense consistency. In addition, the soil along the northern edge of meter J/12 contained a high concentration of carbon and a few small pieces of disintegrated plaster. One quarter of a box of worn impasto sherds, a few small pieces of bone and a single piece of vitrified tile wer found in the dark brown soil. The majority of this material was sicovered int he norhtern half of the meter. Clearing also continued among and around the stone concentration in meters I-J/13-14. Approximately twenty stones of small and medium

size were removed. Several stones of larger size were left in place in order to determine whether they may form part of a more regular feature. The soil around the stones was dark brown in color and contained a high concentratio of carbonized wood and small pieces of disintegrated yellow and orange plaster. Two and a half boxes of pottery, including many burned pieces, one quarter of a box of bone, four pieces of slag and two large pieces of plaster were discovered. One quarter of a cassetta of small pieces of tile were also found. Notable among the pottery finds were several fragments of large coarseware vessels. These fragments were labeled individually and brought down to the magazzino.
