July 23, 1982


Excavation began in the T-26, 1982 extension towards the west, which is defined by the coordinates R-W/62-64.  Cut 1, penetrating through topsoil to a depth of 10 cm below the surface, revealed 5 large stones in grids U-V/62-63, lying in no apparent pattern, and measureing 40-75 cm in length.  They were removed.  One smaller stone (c. 20 cm) was discovered lying against the north baulk in grid R/62, and was left in place, owing to the depth of its placement in lower soil.  No pottery was uncovered in this cut, and littly stray pieces of tile.

Cut Two (35 cm below current trench floor, c. 40-45 cm below topsoil) was commenced in grids W/62-64.  A change in soil color and texture became immediately observable; A reddish soil, with a light plaster content, predominated through the cut.  Carbon material and a few pieces of "glass slag" were found throughout the cut, as well as large plaster and terracotta fragments (which appeared to be unburned).  The reddish soil was slightly looser in consistancy than topsoil.




Continued work on cut 2.  Observed soil change in grid W/64.  It is a reddish brown color with more tile and pottery present.  Work very short today.
