July 20, 1990


Clearing with mestalino and brushes continued in meters J-K/14 and the northern half of meters J-K/13 to a depth of 85-90 cm.  The soil remained dark brown in color and contained a light concentration of carbon.  The amount of small rocks in the soil increased slightly toward the bottom of the cleared area.  However, sweeping of the trench floor revealed no apparent pattern in their placement.  Moreover, the amount of material recovered this morning was significantly smaller than during the previous few days.  One and one quarter boxes of impasto and coarseware, including many burned pieces, one quarter of a cassetta of smal fragments of tile, also including

several burned pieces, and one quarter of a boxof burned bone were discovered.  A few small pieces of slag and vitrified tile were also found.


Clearing continued again in J-K/13-14 with mestalina and brush to a depth of ca. 90-95 cm.  A slight soil change was encountered in the northwestern corner of K/13 from dark-brown to a light brown soil.  This light brown soil was of a loose consistency and contained no material.  Elsewhere, througout the rest of meters J-K/13-14, the soil remained dark brown in color with many small roots.  Again, like this morning, relatively little material

was discovered in the dark-brown soill.  One half of  abox of impasto and coarseware, including many burned pieces, one quarter of a box of burned bone, and a few small pieces of vitrified tile were recovered.
