Daily Log

June 22, 1998, AM

The morning started by taking depth measurements in CA42N. Then a 5cm. cut was initiated in N10, W11-13. The soil is still olive brown in color and therefore retains locus 1 designation. A piece of iron, badly corroded, was found in N10 W11. The cut was extended into N11, W11-13. Stumps in the south part of the trench were defined. Tile and pottery count will be done in the end of the day.

In CA42 10cm cut was started in the well area. Galestra is very hard and rock like in places. Baulk hammers proved to be more useful in picking. Drawing of the exposed western wall of the wall was done.
