August 1, 1997


Work continued removing the carbon-filled and plaster-included soil in S26-27/E138, Locus 20. This work produced 1 full latte box of pottery and bone, in addition to 24 fragments of terracotta. The pottery finds included a number of coarseware fragments. The soil below Locus 20 was darker and more clayey in the eastern portion of the meter (approx. 30-40 cm).

The area of Locus 10, S25-26/E138-139, was also scraped down. Locus 11 was removed and no material was recovered from it. Locus 10 produced 1/8 of a latte of pottery and bone.

The section created in S26/E137 was drawn and photographed, and then work was begun removing the baulk in S26/E136. The upper layer, Locus 27, was a medium brown soil with grass roots at the surface and several larger tree roots running throughout. This locus will be removed in entirety in the afternoon, so pottery and tile quantities will be recorded at that time. A portion of an orangeware base (#1) was recovered in this area.


Finished removing Locus 27, which produced 1/2 of a latte box of pottery and bone, and 25-26 tile fragments, both pan- and cover-tiles, one fragment approx. 15 cm in length.

At a depth of approx. 60 cm b.d., the soil became more yellowish, Locus 28. This locus was not completely removed and produced 1/6 latte of pottery and bone and 6 fragments of tile.
