T-26 Summary: Meters D-E/77-79 were taken down further to approx. 1.7 m.  The cut was then extended into meters.  Tile: 7.  Pottery: 5.

The 1.5 m cut in D-E/77-79 was further taken down to 1.7 m.  The soil continues to be light orange with carbon, indicating a burn layer.  Fine orangeware and bucchero continues to be found, as well as large coarseware vessel fragments and pithos fragments.  At the 1.7 mark in O/79, the soil changes to a dark gray, though most of this cut is the light orange burn layer.  This burn layer appears to be approx. 30 cm thick.

It should be noted that a great deal of plaster is being found in this cut at the moment.  Nearly half of the cassette of tile recorded consist of fragments of plaster - many large.  It should also be noted that not as much bone is being found in this cut as in the previous one.

Looking at the profile of the cut, the red layer could be seen to end sharply at about the 77/78 border.  Most of the 78 meter is dark gray soil, which changes to yellow in 79.

The yellow layer is devoid of tile or anything else.  The yellow appears to be galestra.  There is carbonized wood in the gray layer.

T-26 Summary: The 1.7 m cut was extended into C/78-79 and also into B/77-78.  Tile: 1.  Pottery: 1.

The 1.7 m cut was continued in T-2.  Meter C/79 was taken to 1.7 m and part of meter C/78 was taken to 1.7 m up to the halfway point through the meters.  The soil here is galestra all the way through teh cut.  Meter C/77 was completely taken to 1.7 m and part of B/77 also as well as part of B/78.  The red burn layer

continued all through C/77 but turned to gray soil with carbon by B/77.  The gray soil with carbon in C/78 is giving way to galestra toward B/78.  Fine pottery is still being found (3 conical bucchero feet today= as well as bronze slag.
