Area I

Trench 1

July 13, 2002

Daily journal

We opened the 1x1meter sounding in Area I. It is on the south side of the Tepe (directly south of Area A). We excavated through the first two sounding levels today.

Locus 1 was dug 40cm. deep---we’re trying to excavate in 20-30cm levels, but because we were still in topsoil I kept the locus open a while longer.

Both locus 1 and 2 revealed a considerable amount of pottery and a small amount of bone.

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.
