Grids Q-R/55-56 were taken down to 65 cm below surface at Q/57.  Soil in this area is moist, hard-packed and granulated.  Four tree stumps were removed from this area.  Pottery was not abundant in this cut - a few pieces of assorted fabrics were found.  Architectural tile fragments were much more common.  Roughly two cassette of tiles were filled.










  • Not drawn as a find; found later upon cleaning


Q-R/54 was taken down to a 65 cm level.  Grid 54/55 produced a profusion of architectural terracottas from the Upper Building, including a fragment of frieze plaque and another of a rosette.  In addition to these, an oddly colored piece of bronze was found in R/54.  The colors of this piece were blue, green, and purple.  Cover and pan tile fragments were frequent finds.  Pottery and bone were less frequent.  P/54-56 was also taken down to 65 cm level.  O/56 was taken down to 40 cm level.  Q-R/56 was continued down to the 80 cm mark.
