July 7, 1987


95-100 cm cut was completed in grid U/57.  Pottery of all fabrics was found, as well as a few bone fragments.  A fragment of an impasto rocchetto was discovered.

V/58 was cleaned.  Rocks in this grid and those in U/58 are preserved in situ.  This grid produced pottery of all types and of particular interest - a large jaw of a horse (probably) complete with five teeth.  One piece of fluted cup was discovered; this was impasto.

R-S/59, outside the baulk of the cut, was cleared of backfill in preparation for the final cut in grids Q-U/58.  Under the soil is plaster with heavy burn layer above in places.  Final cut in Q-U/58 will go down to this level.







A tree stump was removed from grid T/56.  The cleaning of this stump produced small amounts of assorted pottery and bone.

R-S/58 was taken down to the level of plaster in 59, roughly 105-110 cm from surface at Q.  This cut is producing large amounts of plaster and pottery and some tile and bone.  Crucible fragments were also found.  A rocchetto head was discovered in R/58.  The rocks which rest on the plaster in T-U/58 seem to decrease in R-S.  A layer of black, burned soil rests on top of any plaster which may exist beneath this level.  It is possible that the plaster pack in S-U/59-58 does not continue in this area.
