Daily Log

June 12, 1981


T-23 Summary: Work continued slowly at ~60 cm in meters AA/11, C-B/11-12.  Pottery: 1/2.  Tile: 1/2.

T-26 Summary: Rock/tile layer at 45-60 cm in E-D/77-79 cleaned with mestiline.  Pottery: negl.  Tile: negl.

Meters C/11 and B/11 continued to be cleaned to ~60 cm with pick and carefully shifting the soil.  In B/11, soil was more brown-gray, less burn layer.  Tile layer in meter C/12 was cleaned with mestaline.  The 60 cm cut in AA/11-12 was continued NW and soil carefully checked in the wheelbarrow.  There continues to be evidence of a burn layer here (orange-black light soil).

T-26 was also excavated this morning.  The stone packing at 45-60 cm in D-E/77-79 was uncovered with hammer and mestiline.  The stone packing is not present in meter E/77 and part of E/78, but continues to the NW in D/78-79 and partly D/77.

T-23 meter AA/11 produced ivory so work changed to sieves.










T-23 Summary: Meters C/11 and AA/11 further excavated to 60 cm.  Tile: neg. --> 1/2.  Pottery: negl. 1/2.

T-26 Summary:  The tile/rock layer in E-D/77-79 at 45-60 cm continued to be cleaned down.  Tile: neg.  Pottery: neg.

Work continued in the same manner as this morning.  Soil from T-23 was gone through with a sieve.
