June 9, 1988


This morning photographs were taken of the trench area.  A 10cm. topsoil cut was ten taken in meters A-H/4-6.  The soil was very wet and clay-like in substance.  It contained many small rocks and some roots.  A few pieces of heavily worn tile and a pithos fragment were discovered.  A soil dump was placed to the southwest, 130 degrees, 22 meters distant from the southwest corner of the trench H/1.


This afternoon the topsoil cut made this morning was extended further to the west.  In the northern end of the trench, the cut was extended to meters A-B/1.  In the central and southern part of the trench the cut was extended to meters C-H/2.  A large stump in meter G/3 prevented complete excavation of this area.  The soil

was again very wet and clay-like in substance.  Only a few badly worn pieces of tile were discovered.
