CA33 J K 11-13

Continued leveling across at 53 cm. in J K 11 and 12.  In the NW corner of J 12 a large fragment of iron slag was recovered at a depth of 56-52 cm.  The outline of the pit continues in the baulk on the west and under a tree on the east.  Fro these reasons it was decided to excavate from teh northern limit of the feature in J 14, 15, find the limits and follow them south, up the slope.  Due to the large amount of stumps in J 14 troweling was impossible in the upper levels an a pick had to be employed.

The soil within J K 11-14 is a dark brown.  It is friable but contains large amounts of roots and stones in the upper humus layer.  Area J/K 19 excavated to 75 cm.



A good quantitiy, about 1/3 of a cassetta, of worn tile and ceramic fragments were recovered in J K 14.  Two ceramic handles also were found.  Worked part time with architect in plan mapping and shooting elevations.
