T-23 Summary: Meters D/11-12 were cleared of topsoil and taken to 60 cm.  Tile: 3.  Pottery: 3.

Meters D/11-12 were cleared of topsoil to approx. 20 cm deep and then taken another 20 cm to 40 cm.  The soil

was rooty and with stone - dark brown soil, almost black - characteristic of topsoil.  The meters were then taken to the 60 cm floor level with pick and checking the soil at a medium pace (one shovel every 15 seconds) in the wheelbarrow. The soil from 40-60 was sometimes light gray with stones, sometimes orange-light with carbon specks.  The orange-light soil appeared lower towards 60 cm.

These meters were taken out in order to recover more ivory artifacts.  It was thought that these meters would be rich in artifacts due to the large number of pieces found in C/11-12.

T-26 was photographed this morning.






T-23 Summary: Meters D/11-12 continued to be taken to 60 cm.  Tile: 1.  Pottery: 1.

Meters D/11-12 were almost completely taken to 60 cm.  The soil remains as this morning - dark and rooty with stones from approx. 40-50 cm and red-orange with carbon and tile from approx. 50-60 cm.  Work was with pick, shovel, and searching through the wheelbarrow at a medium pace.
