Daily Trench Journal

Area C

Trench 1

June 21, 2005

Today we are working on both sides of wall 1111. On the east we are removing the floor 1117 through the HAP sample protocol. The HAP ½ meter2 square sample consisted of two buckets equalling 18 liters. The remains of the surface were removed and were screened. A floatation sample was recovered as well. As the surface was removed, it became clear that the walls have stopped since the pebble surface appears to go below the wall and into the western section of the trench. We completely removed the 1117 pebble surface from the western side of the trench. The rest will have to wait until we completely remove the wall 1111 and finish cleaning up the eastern half.

We also began taking down the southern end of wall 1111. We have started removing it in possible layers to see if we could determine exactly where it stopped. I do not think this is possible at this time, so tomorrow we will remove both walls 1111 and 1110 and start fresh with detailing 1117 in the west.

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.
