We are taking the rest of the walls; L4030 and L4041 off. Under L4030 there is a kind of soft soil starting.

After this I need to remove L4047 in order to avoid mixing something unnecessary with the sealed loci.

I opened a locus for the West part of L4057 because of the walls occurred (L4062, L4064). These walls should be separating something. Also I noticed that L4063 needs to be expanded because L4064 is showing that direction. So I feel that L4064 and L4062 are the walls separating this corner of the trench from the rest. So L4063 and L4066 is one side of the walls and the rest is different.

So the other half f L4057 is L4067 now. Because this is the other side of the walls. The fill there seems to be the same as the level in L4044 so I am closing L4044 and this whole part becomes L4067.

Now we started to take off L4047. Also we are continuing L4030 from the North.

Also I started to dig L4065 to the level of L4067.

After breakfast we are still continuing digging the loci that we were digging before breakfast.

For this season I am aiming to take the walls and the fill underneath it to the level of the rest and finish the loci at the middle of the trench.

It seems that the wall L4030 continues more.

Bu we are almost lower than L4062 so we are now taking that off. Then we will try to take the second course off the wall. But under L4062 there seems to be some rocks!

Also I think we saw a pit next to the wall on the West side. I will look at that again and put some nails there. I don't think we can dig that part.

In L4061 there seems to be 2 courses of pottery. We couldn't dig any deeper than the level of the wall so I will dig that part deeper. And then I will take the second course of the wall.

Also we went to the level of L4066 in L4065.

Has note The purpose of the daily journal was to record the activities taking place in a trench each day. This included which loci were excavated, how and why loci were excavated and the ongoing impressions of the relationships among loci. It should be noted that journals record the actions, impressions and ideas of trench supervisors during the excavations. They are not, therefore, the final interpretations or syntheses of the emerging data.
