Finished cut begun on Friday in eastern 1/2 of H-I/41 down from 70-90cm.  Medium brown/gray soil yielded less than, about 3 small pieces of coarseware, and 1 large amorphous piece of bronze.

Began a new cut through topsoil in the western 1/2 of H-I/41 (which also includes a small portion H-I/40) from 18 to 40cm.  Recovered 1/4 cassetta of tile and 1/3 latte box of pottery.  Our 2nd cut in meters H-I/41 down to 50cm, consisted of topsoil which produced 1/8 cassetta of tile and plaster, a possible statue fragment (find #2), and a piece of pottery with a possible incised "chi" (find #3).

The third cut, down to 60cm, yielded 1/16 cassetta of tile and plaster, 1/4 latte of pottery and bone, and a piece of molded impasto rim (find #4).  The soil was medium brown.

The fourth cut in H-I/41 went down to approx. 70cm and consisted mainly of medium brown/gray soil.  Recovered 1/4 cassetta of tile and plaster, 3/4 latte of pottery and bone (including 1 very large piece of bone).

Began removing the stump in #/52.  The stump was pulled out and the area roughly cut down to about 125cm.  This

produced 1 1/2 cassetta of tile fragments, including numerous flange fragments, and appoximately 1 1/2 latte boxes of pottery and bone fragments.  A few small flakes of bronze were recovered.  A spindle whorl (find #1), an incised bucchero rim (#5), and a very small fragment of glass (#6) were found as well.
