Daily Log


August 5, 1980


Meters EE-FF/12 were taken down to ~1.5 m, thus breaking the barier between T-23 1980 Extension and T-23 1979 Extension South.  The soil at this level is yellow-gray, as was noted at this level in other meters of T-23 1980 Extension, and is presumed to also be just above galestra and thus is virgin soil.  Meter GG/12 has been excavated to ~70 cm and will not be excavated further this year.  This completes the excavation of T-23 1980 Extension and of the entire T-23 area for this season (1980).

The following data should be noted:

1.  The stone packing at 1.2 m in GG-HH-II/11 was photographed today.

2.  Several large stones were uncovered at ~1.1 m in EE-FF/12.  These were cleaned down and photographed.  Since they were isolated stones, they were removed.

3.  The large pantile ( MT I, p. 317 Find #7 ) was labeled and taken down to the magazzino.

4.  Pithos fragments (4 cassetta) found in T-23 1980 extension were placed in 2 half oil drums and the drums labeled and placed in the southernmost end of T-23 1979 Extension North.  Pithos found with cleaning T-23 1979 extension was also placed in these drums.

5.  Pottery discard were placed in two half oil drums and placed beside the pithos oil drums.  One drum contains discard pottery from cuts 1-3 and the other from cuts 4-7.

6.  The tile pile was buried.  However, when it was learned that permission from the Superintendent of Archaeology to bury this tile had not been given, the tile was re-exposed.
