The rest of the 1.5 m x 2 m cut was cleared to the hard-packed level that is assumed to represent the archaic floor.

At its western edge, the elevations at the level of the probable floor (Locus 2) were .91 m at the south and .85 m in the north


We opened the locus (2) at the eastern edge of the new trench, with a ca 0.5 cut. the soil that makes up the possible "floor" is dark brown, riddled with bits of yellowish-white plaster (or calcium?), small clay deposits, and occasionally minute pieces of carbon. the half-meter cut is about 5 cm deep, and has not yet revealed a new locus.

Three small sherds of redware were recovered from Locus 2

along with three small pieces of isolated tile.

Locus 1 produced 8 bucchero sherds (incl. 2 rims), 9 impasto sherds (incl. 4 rims), 4 bones, + 2 marine shells.


  • Find #1
  • Locus 1
  • Supplemental bone with saw mark, end worn, as by a rope
