Morning

We contine the cut (cut 3) begun yesterday in AG-X whorking west from AA-BB 0 to AA-BB-CC 2 removing the rock fall in the soil, except in the far north in 2-0 CC where a later of dark loam appears ca 100cm from the surface at the border o of 2 and 1 and subsides ca. 125cm below. The yellow white soil yields little save some bits of bronze slag, the yellow clayey soil which succeeds it in the east little more. The scant pottery from the yellow and yellow-white areas does include a large lug handle (#3) and some large and small tile fragments- mainly around the rocks. The loam yields little or no material. It is fill of charcoal though it lacks the other attributes of burn soil. The yellow soils contain fragments of crude iron or bronze slag (#4). In AA-CC we reach dark burn soil, and pottery and bone, now oftern burned, grow frequent. Here also we find in AA-BB at the border of 0-Z numerous of the burned seeds familiar from Rect. 22, and we continue eastward with hammer and spade and seiving soil. The "beans" appear between 85 and 110cm from the top of the trench imn the east.

We finish clearning the soil left under the rock fall in EE-GG 0-7 and continue cut 3 moving north and reaching quadrent GG. This burn soil yields the enigmatic fragmetns # 's 11, 13, 14 and 16, and a lettered covertile fragment; also the rochetto #12.

In R22 we contine the current cut in 2-3C, skimming the burn layer below. This yields a relatively large amount of pottery, more seeds (# 's 5, 6, 9), a large lump of bronze slag and a piece of nail (#8).

The vast majority of tile comes from Cut 3 in AG-X's north-south strech, that of pottery from there and (the related) AA-CC 0-Z.

Afternoon

We search the tile dump for fragments of the low tripod stand suggested by this morning's find #16, and continue to clean down the tile fall in AG-X CC-DD 0-Z. The former yields many interesting pieces of tile for further scrutiny, a fair amount of heavy coarseware and two friexze-plaque fragments (# 's 1 and 2); the latter yields a small amount of pottery.
