Continued yesterday's cut through meters S25-26, E137-136.  The yelowish soil, Locus 9, continued throughout, although it was thicker in some areas than others.  Below the yellow soil, a layer of medium brown soil with heavy carbon and plaster inclusions was exposed; Locus 10.

After the cut was completed the baulks of the trench were straightened, producing 1/6 of a latte box of pottery and bone and 12-14 fragments of tile and plaster.

Work then turned to removing the remaining lenses of yellow, Locus 9, soil with trowels.  This work will be finished in the afternon, and all Locus 9 pottery and tile quantities will be recorded at that time.


A.M. con't.




Finished removing the yellow, Locus 9, soil to a depth of approximately 65-67 cm.b.d.  This work porduced 1 full latte of pottery and bone, and 26 fragments of tile and plaster, including one large piece of plaster (10 x 7 cm.).

A shallow cut of 2-3 cm. was taken from meters S25-26 E136 into the middle of S25-26, E137 through the Locus 10 soil, which is medium brown with heavy concentrations of carbon and decayed plaster.  This work produced 1 very full latte box of pottery and bone as well as 15-16 fragments of tile and 18-20 small pieces of plaster.  Portions of a bucchero winghandle fenestrations (#4).
