July 23, 1998


Work continued in E140/S23-24, troweling through the dark brown carbon-included soil (Locus 41).  27 tile and plaster fragments and 2/3 of a latte box of pottery and bone were recovered.

The south-facing baulk at meter S24/E136-137 was completely shaved down in preparation for section drawing.

In E136-137/S23-24, the baulk walls were straightened.  A lump of bronze was recovered (#1).

Baulk trimming produced 10 bone fragments, 6 fragments of coarseware, 18 of impasto, and 3 orangeware fragments.

Also, in this area, E136-137/S23-24, work was begun excavating the dark brown soil with carbon inclusions (Locus 42).  The upper surface of this stratum is approximately 60-65 cm b.d., although it rises up to 52-54 cm in the western corners.  Only a small amount of work was done in this locus today.  It produced only 1 small tile fragment, 9 bone fragments, and 8 ceramic fragments.
