Daily Log

July 22, 1996

Continued work along the western baulk of R14 in meters E139-140, S25-27. In the area of meters E139, S26, where a section was cut further west by Gantz in 1968, the stratigraphy appeared very clearly. Approximately 80cm b.d. a thin layer of whitish soil appeared, which was surmounted by a thin layer of darker soil with inclusions of carbon, possibly indicating a habitation surface (see section, page 40). This work produced 2/3 of a latte of pottery and bone and 15-20 fragments of tile.

In the E140,S28 trench work was carried out in meters E140-141, S28-29, lowering the floor in this area to the level of   cm b.d. , equal with the rest of the area. Locus 2 produced 12 fragments of pottery and bone, and seems to overlay a yellow layer which was uncovered by this work. Locus 4 produced 4 fragments of pottery and 7 of terracotta.

In the E140, S19 trench work was carried out in meters E141, S19-21. The soil was light brown-grey, Locus 3, and produced about 2/3 of a latte of pottery and bone- final quantities for this work will be recorded in the afternoon. A few small stones were uncovered as well.




Continued work in the E140, S19 trench moving westward into E140,S19-20. The soil was consitent with this morning's work and produced 1 1/4 latte boxes of pottery and approximatley 12-15 fragments of tile.

Work was also carried out to the east of this trench clearing trees and grass in order to expose any traces of foundations.
