Summer 1968 Appendix

July 31, Wednesday T S1

In order to clarify the unit excvated as described on pages 151-155 , being a section of the trenches 1AB + 1AE, work was begun in the area west of the profile shown on page 176 .A trench was started, having the profile as its eastern side, the wall of the main building as its southern side. The trench was called \'\'Substratum in the Tesoro complex 1\'\', T S1. For relation to other trenches, see plan p. . It covered part of the trenches 1V and 1AB, starting at the level at which the trenches were left the previous season. Trench 1V had been taken down to 35cm, ( see p. 55 )  where a concentration of stones covered the part of the trench which ran along the

edge of the main wall, facing N. The trench T S1 encompassed the very eastern edge of this stone concentration, see plan. For the level of trench 1AB, see p. 85 . What both trenches had in common was the small amount of tiles found in the upper layers.

The first layer taken off produced 4 boxes of tiles and went down till about 50 cm. In the western part of the trench the soil under the durface (which to some extent consisted of earth which had blown in during the winter) was ligjht grey and powdery, whereas in the eastern part a continuation of the burnt area, described as appearing in 1AB + 1AE (see eg. p. 139 . and 143 ) appeared.

Photographs of area

An inset, ca. 1.10m wide, in the main wall (called \'\'a break\'\' (?) on p. 55 ) was cleaned in order to see the depth of the foundation. No layer of stones appeared under the visible stnoe layer and there were no finds in the dirt in this inset. The dirt was removed till a depth of ca. 50 cm from the top of the wal\xf2l, where a large rock (or cul stone) appeared.

The \'\'gap\'\' mentioned on pp. 51 and 55 in trench V was cleaned. No stones were found when the level was taken down inside it, and when the side were cleaned and scraped, it also became clear that there are no layers of stone under the now visible foundations of the main wall. See plan .
