Daily Log

July 10, 2001

We spent the morning defining the wall using a pick axe to remove the root layer, and baulk hammers and trowels for the more delicate work on the wall itself.

In the afternoon, we ocninued to define the wall by the same methods discussed earlier.  The wall appears to consist of a line of large stones on the North and South with smaller stones in between.  A large amount of plaster is found around the area of the wall and may have been used in its construction.  The soil being removed at the present is still fill dirt from the 1971 excavation.

A significant amount of tile and pottery are still being unerthed.  By the days end, 1/2 a latte box of pottery and bone was collected and 1 full latte box of terracotta and plaster.
