July 29, 1994

Work continued in meters M/71 and K-L-M/72 with the first cut descending to a depth of roughly 115 cm.  Soil through this cut was primarily medium brown with plaster inclusions, although in M/71 and parts of M/72, the soil shifts to a dark carbon burn soil.

Pottery is extremely heavy (6 latte boxes) in this area, although tile is sparse (only 1/4 a cassetti).



In the next cut to a depth of 120 cm below surface, soil was consistently dark brown with very heavy carbon inclusions.  Pottery is intensely concentrated, especially in meter L/72.  The cut remains unfinished, with only K-L/72 excavated so far.

Only sporadic tile fragments have been found so far, although 3 latte boxes of pottery have been removed.
