Continued taking the area north of the wall down with baulk hammers in the earl morning.  However, near the westernmost baulk, a stone backing layer was exposed and tracked.  Digging continued with trowels in order to scrape the rest of the floor down ot the pakcing level.  Unfortunately, it only extends 80cm to the east from 215E.  This may be because previous excavations cut through the level in the 70s.  Upon scraping to this level, two special finds were made: #1 a creamware base and #2 a creamware rim that may be painted.  Many stones discovered yesterday had been pedasteled and we continued to dig around them until the late afternoon.  Then, from the edge of the packing 215,80cm to 217.30, a new locus, Locus #2 was began for the section cut of the floor/wall area.  I believe we have reache dthe boundaries of the 70s excavation of the earea and will proceed into unexcavated ground.  The first pass in this 1.5 meter area was taken with the pick.  The end of Locus #1 yielded 1/5 latte box of pottery and 3.5 boxes of tile and plaster.  Locus 3 yielded 1 latte box of tile/plaster and 9 pieces of pottery and 1 bone fragment.
