Took cut in H-I/49 down from 50-75cm. Soil was medium brown and yielded 1/4 cassetta of tile and 1/8 latte of pottery and bone.

Began second cut in H-I/49 to approx. 80-95cm.  Quantities will be noted in the afternoon when the cut is continued.

Continued cut in H-I/48-47 to the edge of the stone concentration, down to approx. 140cm..  Soil continued to consist of 2-3cm of burn layer over the yellow-brown clay-like soil which was devoid of material. *  However, the dark burn layer was much deeper in the north west corner of H/47 and extended to about 140cm. It was here that a large fossilized shell (not made a find) was found.  Also found 1/4 cassetta of tile and plaster; an incised piece of pottery; find #2, an incised fragment of bucchero; find #3, a short, squarish bronze shaft.  All material was found in the dark burn layer.   This cut was continued on the other side of the line of stones in H-I/46, pottery and tile quantities from this area will be noted this afternoon.

Photographs taken

*Formerly noted as "yellowish galestra-like soil."

P. M.

Work in H-I/49 continued and these two meters were lowered to a depth of approximately 90cm.  The soil was medium brown.  1/3 cassetta of tile fragments and 1/2 latte box of pottery and bone fragments were removed.  A creamware fragment with paint was found in this area (find#4).  A small amorphous piece of bronze was also discovered.  Continued cut in H-I/46 west into H-I/44 at an approximate depth of 140cm.  There were shallow pockets of dark brown soil resting on top of the yellow-brown clay-like soil which is devoid of material.  1/6 cassetta of tile and plaster fragments, and 1 full latte of bone and pottery fragments were found.

The area of the stone and plaster concentration in H-I/43-42, at an approximate depth of 115-120cm, was drawn.
