August 2, Friday


The trench was taken down east and west of the wall, of which the surface was traved the day before. East of the wall tiles were heavy already at the depth of 20 cm, about 2 boxes were dumped. West of the wall the trench was taken

down to a depth of about 55cm where stones seemed to appear, maybe as a continueation of the oval construction shown on plan p. 152 and described on p. 155 , and patches of burnt soil. 5 boxes of tiles were dumped. The western end of the trench was taken down separately and slowly as to find a possible continuation of the wall in T S1, while a new trench was laid out, parallel to T1 AK and of the same measurements, see plan p. 188 .
