Daily Log

July 11, 1972

Work continued in Grids 5-6 C-D as well as in the southeast corner of the rectangle.  In the southeast corner (1-2 J), the earth was cleared from the foundation walls.  The construction of the foundations here was not as good: larger stones were used, leaving large gaps of earth in the foundation as well as uneven edges.  The south wall was found to slant somewhat to the southeast as it approaches the corner.

In Grids 5-6 CD, the carbon deposit was found to continue.  Several pieces of bucchero as well as some "Italo-Corinthian" sherds were found in this area.


  • Find 2
  • Grid 6D
  • c. 85 cm
  • Yellow earth stratum, next to wall
  • Stamped bucchero sherd

After the rest of the brown earth, carbon, and yellow earth strata were removed from the northwest corner, and after the southwest corner was cleaned to the foundation wall, excavation was terminated.  The trench was swept and cleaned in order to prepare it for photography.
