Continued excavating in locus 17, soil contains some pottery and bone but very little tile and quite a bit of plaster. Pottery 3 all impasto and one piece of very smooth, burned bone was found. We continue deeper within meters E186-188/S49-50 in hope of finding a stratigraphic layer of Villanovan occupation. Within T27 in _________ was discovered a Villanovan burn layer beneath a yellowish soil relatively devoid of material. If this Villanovan layer were discovered we would have a continuous stratigraphic occupation from Villanovan to Archaic.
Work continued within locus 17 with no change in soil type or color. We levelled the floor and trimmed the baulks in order to have the architect Craig Copeland draw the baulks tomorrow morning. Today's work yielded ~1 1/2 latte boxes of pottery and bone and several bits of plaster.
