Photographs taken

Extended this mornings cut in H-I/45, removing the rest of the soil, at a depth of about 120cm, to the edge of the stone pack in H-I/45-44. The soil remained as noted this morning through the cut.  Approximately 1/6 of a cassette of tile and plaster, 3/4 a latle of pottery and bone, and a few small flakes of bronze were removed.  Finds from this area include a portions of painted creamwere (#34), slag (#35), and a fragment of ridged impasto (#36).  Another cut was initiated in H/45-44, taking the area down to an approximate depth of 120cm.  The soil was dark brown with frequent inclusions of carbon.  It was noted that the soil at the bottom of the cut contained large amounts of carbon as the soil was almost black.  1/16 of a cossette of tile and plaster, 1 1/8 latte boxes of pottery, along with a few small fragments of bronze were removed.

Work began on the baulks in H-I/48-46 in an effort to straighten them.  This produced about 1/16 of a cassette of tile and plaster, 4 1/3 of a latte of pottery and bone.  A-spindle whorl (#37) was also found in this area.
