Daily Log

July 27, 1998


Today's work in SF was limited due to the fact that the architect was drawing the south facing section between meters S24-25 at E136-137, as well as drawing a preliminary trench plan.

The eastern-most baulk, E140/S23-24, was trimmed.  Several Upper Building wall stonse frmo the wall dividing R14 appear in this section.  This work produced 9 small fragments of tile and terracotta, 18 bone fragments, 5 fragments of coarseware, and 23 of impasto.  This material was discarded on the tile dump.

Work was also begun removing the 20 cm baulk left at the eastern edge of E137/S23 and the north 50 cm of S24.

The upper layer of soil -- its upper surface being consistent with the archaic floor level -- was a medium brown soil thickly matted with grass roots (Locus 43), especially at the top.  The upper surface of the stratum had a depth of 30-32 cm b.d.  This stratum dipped slightly deeper towards the center of the baulk.  The depth at both ends (S22.10

and S23.50) was 44 cm b.d., while at S22.80 the depth was 52 cm b.d., where a yellowish brown soil started to appear throughout the surface of the baulk.

This locus (43) produced 1/5 of a box of pottery and bone along with 31 fragments of tile, including pan- and covertile fragments.

Most of the yellowish brown soil (Locus 44) was also removed, exopsing a darker brown carbon-included soil.

The yellowish soil (Locus 41) produced very little material -- 5 small fragments of terracotta, 15 ceramic fragments, and 8 bone fragments.
