1U The entire length of the wall through 1U was cleaned. Depth remained at 30-35 cm in the northern half but dropped off sharply to 60-60cm in the southern half. The southern half also produced a fair amount of pottery in addition to a number of vase and tile fragments lying on the wall.


The third course was taken off and the irregular stones appearing were cleared.

The second course was taken off. Stones appeared along the E edge of the trench, continuing as it seemed the curve of the wall noticed in 1X pg.63 . At 2.20 m facing S there was a gap which went across the trench widening from 1.40 m at the E edge to 1.90 m at the W edge, lined at the E edge with laid stones which changed into bedrock facing S and W for the rest of the trench.

At 60 cm facing S a formation of stones appeared at the W edge which contained a great amount of pottery and cut peices of horn (deer ?). Outside this pit, few pieces of pottery was found and very few tiles. See photo p. 76
