Daily Trench Journal

Area C

Trench 1

14 June 2005

Today we are taking an HAP sample of the surface between the two mud brick walls (L1109). This locus was cut on the south side by a pit removed in 2003 (L1100 and 1086).

The ½ m2 HAP sample area was removed resulting in the collection of 2.5 buckets at 9 liters each totaling 22.5 liters.

The floor volume of the sample was an additional 16.5 buckets at 9 liters each totaling 148.5 liters.

So the idea is that L1111/1089 and L1110/1083 were mud brick walls with the associated surface L1109 (plastered surface). It is unclear if this was the original surface or not. The mud brick may or may not continue down below this. The mud brick walls probably extended up approximately 30-35cm (after reuse) and was then reused as a foundation for the stone walls. About 15-20cm above the current level in the 2003 field season there was a small secondary wall (L1092) and an associated fire installation (L1098?). There was also an in situ pot smash (KT?) lying against the wall (L1089). So the walls were reused over time through multiple phases.

I will attempt to determine the depth of the eastern wall (L1110) by removing L1114 which is the fill between the wall and the eastern baulk.

Has note The purpose of the daily journal was to record the activities taking place in a trench each day. This included which loci were excavated, how and why loci were excavated and the ongoing impressions of the relationships among loci. It should be noted that journals record the actions, impressions and ideas of trench supervisors during the excavations. They are not, therefore, the final interpretations or syntheses of the emerging data.
