July 12, 1971
Work was continued in R8. It turned out that the burnt layer of soil- str. D- is mixed in with stones starting at about 25 cm. below the previously excavated level, that is the foundation walls of the upper building.
At the eastern end of the cut the foundation wall goes down but wiht a somewhat iregular construction- like that in grid D-F 1 of R7.
At the western part of the trench we tried to expose the outer line of the pise wall. The strati-
fication at A4 shows str. A which is followed by a heavily burnt layer which is reddish-grey. As far as we can tell this might form part of the wall since it has the consistency of plaster. The cut was taken down to a max depth of 50 cm. At the depth of 30 cm. the rededish plaster (?) was superseded by a white stratum which corresponds to that of the pise wall in R7.
At the level of 0.40-0.50 m down the amount of stones increased. Tiles, sherds, and slivers of bronze were still found amoung these stones. There was no sign
- nail on tack
- spindle whorl
- spindle whorl
- ivory sticks with incised squares
of the sandy tufa-layer which was so conspicuous in R7. The side of the crosswall between R7 and R8 was cleaned.
Two boxes of tiles were collected.
Onhe pithor rim- but no other pithoi fragments.
Less than one strawberry carton of sherds.
