July 21, 1987


The floor of the S.E. building was cleaned for several hours.

The rock pack, which seems to run in a straight line from R/56 to L/55, was cleaned further.  Tiles resting near and on these rocks continue to be found.  Plaster is also heavy in this area.  T-22 washout was picked up in A-C/53-55.

Work in M/54 continued.  This grid was brought down to the level of T-22 (120 cm).  Due to a sloping ground surface, the depth of this cut at the baulk at M is roughly 100 cm.  This cut was even with the burn layer of T-22 and indeed heavy carbon concentration was found.  Approximately one tall latte box of assorted pottery was filled.  Tile and plaster was also found.




N/54 was brought down to 100 cm below surface.  Carbon concentration decreased in this grid relative to M/54.  One tall latte box of pottery was filled.  Of particular interest was a rocchetto found in M/54.

Work today was concentrated in T-22.  All crews worked in this area.  In grid A/55, a bowl (face downward) was recovered.  Split in two, one half rested slightly above the other.  This bowl rested on dirt which covered the upper bedrock "step" of the north end. *

Q-R/57 was brought down to ~100 cm level.  Approximately one tall latte box of pottery was found.  Tile and plaster fragments were also found.

* This area was not washout.  According to SL I , this area was only excavated to 40 cm below surface level.
