July 11, 1997


The first hour of the morning was spent defining foundations in R15 and immediately north of R15.  Work then began in the area of S25-26, E136-139 within the confines of theUpper Building walls. A pick pass was taken throughout, lowering the area to approximately 60 cm.b.d.  The soil remained consistent with the Locus 5 designation.  Work then turned to straightening the baulks and defining the concentration of stones located in S25-26,E136 in order to determine whether they form any type of regular formation or whether they are simply fill beneath the Upper Building floor.  One piece of ridged impato was found (#1).  A large portion of the corner of a pan tile was also recovered and will be kept out to check for joins with other tile fragments.  Overall pottery and tile quantities will be recorded in the afternoon.


The grouping of stones in meters S25-26 were drawn and work was begun moving them.  The soil in and above them was the same medium brown with sporadic carbon and yellowish flecks of clay.  However, due to the concentration of rocks and a higher density of ceramic- particularly from one impasto pot (#3) probably a full profile, and portions of a pan-tile with a finger impressed A(alpha) (#2), this area has been designated as Locus 7.  The stones were completely removed, teh largest being approximately 45 cm. long.  Also recovered were portions of a large ring base and a cooking bell, only 3-4 fragments of impasto were found, with 9 other fragments of tile including a flange piece which may be associated with find #2 and will be taken down with it.

The material recovered from LOCUS 5 consisted of 15-18 tile fragments, including the portion of pan-tile mentioned this morning, and 1/3 of a latte of pottery and bone.
