The early morning was spent surveying out the first trenches for the T9 area. The area on the northern face of the wall will encompass the following area: 13-17N, 215-217E. However for the time being, the area being excavated ecompasses 13-14N, 13-14.5N, 215-217E. This area coincides with the northernmost baulk edge of the 1971 excavation which may be expolored at a later date.
The other trench opened in T9 today will encompass meters 10.5-12.5N, 215-218E, which resides on the southern portion of the wall.
The northern trench was excavated today by Kristen Hosleter and her crew of students, this being her last day in the T9 area. They excavated an area of this trench consisting of 14.5-13N, 15-13N, 215-217E with pick axes down approximately 10cm through 1971 backfill. This area is designated Locus 2.
The souterh trench, excavated by myself and my crew took the same approach, also through backfill soil. By the days end, this area was taken down approximately 25-30cm in the area designated in Locus 1. The soil, like that which rested on the wall, was apparently not well sifted. From both areas, about 4 1/2 latte boxes of terracotta and 1 latte box of pottery were pulled. Locus 2 will cease excavation for now, as Kristen will move to T18. It will be returned to later by me.
