We are digging out the soft dirt under L1060 which on the east I called L1063. This locus perhaps contains a lot of last year's collapse from where L1051 and L1050 were dug. We started to see burnt red and black dirt on the

East side so I stopped moving in that direction. We also dug out the rest of the ash of KT1489 as new locus L1062. I dug both of these soft parts separately in order to prevent the harder dirt around from later contaminating them. The ashy L1062 continue south along L1061.

I opened L1061 as the long pile of pottery and rock chunks. They seem to have fallen all together. There is a line - maybe fill for a wall or something.

We started digging the North section after taking the small find donut which is most likely part of this trash pile - it was re-used. We took some soil from the north. We have also found some good carbon samples in L1061.

In the middle f L1061 some blackened, burnt pottery came up. There were a few chunks. Almost inside one we found a really great carbon sample KT1508.

Has note The purpose of the daily journal was to record the activities taking place in a trench each day. This included which loci were excavated, how and why loci were excavated and the ongoing impressions of the relationships among loci. It should be noted that journals record the actions, impressions and ideas of trench supervisors during the excavations. They are not, therefore, the final interpretations or syntheses of the emerging data.
