Daily Log

July 9, 2001

The entirety of the day was spent cleaning topsoil and fill dirt from the exposed section of the wall; approximately the first six meters.  The first four and a half meters were visible and had da very thin layer of leaves and earth that cleared easily with littler material.  As we moved east, approximately one and a half meters of the wall fed into a mound of fill dirt that covers the rest that was previously excavated.  This was worked on with the baulk hammer until the wall became visible, and then it was strictly trowel work.  An unusual amount of material was removed from the area, considering it was fill dirt.  Two boxes of tile, 1 latte box of plaster and 2 boxes of pottery and bone were recovered.  THis is an obvious indication that the fill dirt from the 69-71 excavation was not thouroughly sorted.
