Daily trench Journal

Area D

Trench 8

May 29, 2005

This morning I started by remeasuring all the loci in the trench. I dd this because I feel that over time the lines of the loci get off because the day plans are copied from one another. I also fixed the dimesions for some of the loci. Bradley and I investiated the floor L66 and decided that there was not enoguh to take a HAP sample. When we began removing the floor it was clear that there were at lease 6 layers and could be up to 8. There was no subfloor construction that we could see. The only pottery which we found was the single sherd. A few pieces of lithic came out too. This floor did not extend to the wall L66. There was some psedo organic material between some of the layers. We took a soil sample from this loci.

Today I also removed floor L67. To do this we popped off the thin layer of plaster or mud flooring so that we could see the mud brick underneith. The mudbrick appeared to be burnt.

Besides wall L65 there are now no other active feature loci in the the trench. We took down L64, the southern most 4 meters, 15 cm.

Has note The purpose of the daily journal was to record the activities taking place in a trench each day. This included which loci were excavated, how and why loci were excavated and the ongoing impressions of the relationships among loci. It should be noted that journals record the actions, impressions and ideas of trench supervisors during the excavations. They are not, therefore, the final interpretations or syntheses of the emerging data.
