Tile: 1 1/2 T-23, negligible T-26

Pottery: 1/2 T-23, negligible T-26

Brief summary: T-26 topsoil and stumps completed removed.  Trench at a depth of ~30 cm in NW corner, ~15 cm in SW corner due to slope of hill.  T-23 taken to ~30-35 cm.  Meters B-C/12 ~40 cm.  BB, CC ~15 cm.  New cut in C/11-12, taken to ~45 cm just above the tile layer.  Bronze nails and ivory found.

Excavation of T-26 continued.  Entire trench cleared of stumps and taken down to ~30 cm level measured from NW corner.  Very little tile or pottery encountered.

Excavation of T-23 continued with workmen.  Stumps in BB-CC/11 prevented these meters from being taken to level of rest of trench.  Tile is beginning to be exposed at ~35-40 cm.  Small area of C/11-12 picked to ~45 cm just above tile.  Soil carefully gone through, yielding ivory, nails of bronze, bronze slag and glass slag.








T-23 tile: 1/2; pottery negligible

T-26 tile: 1/2; pottery negligible

Summary: Meters C/11-12 were further excavated to ~45 cm, just above tile.  Meters BB-CC/11 were taken partly to ~40 cm.  Large amounts of tile hit in southern end of CC/11.  A cut of ~15 cm was continued south in T-26.

T-23 C-H/12 produced only bronze slag.  Heavy tile layer appears ~45 cm.  Heavy tile in CC/11 at ~40 cm.

T-26 was taken to ~40 cm when measured from all edges of the trench.  Tile is beginning to be encountered.
