AM worked in magazzino

PM Work continued in G-I 39-40 trying to establish the depth of the "galestra-like" soil.

In P/Q 36-37 work with trowels continued, but in separate areas: between the N/S lines of stones, the the east of them but west of the N/S well in G-L 37, and east of that wall.  The reason for this separation was the lower level and soil composition of the eastern half of P/Q 36.  This area had signifcantly more carbon.  In the soil, and the soil was more clayey in texture.  In P/Q 36 east a small bronze ball recovered, along with a few handfulls of tile, and pottery including 3 sherds from large storage vessels and 2 fragments of pithos rim.

In P/Q 37 several bronze flakes and other bits of bronze were recovered, and also a small handful of pottery and just a few pieces of tile.  Finally in P/Q 36 west little was found except one handful of pottery, a few bits of tile, and some small finds.

In G-I 39-40 the soil continued to be "galestra-like".  It was excavated to a level of 138cm on the north and 142cm on the south.  Then the baulks were trimmed and the plaster concentration swept.  It is clear when examining the western section that the plaster concetration lies on top of this galestra-like soil.  Rain stopped work one half hour early.
