August 7, 1967


After the trench been cleared down to the top of wall a test cut was made across from the wall to the southern edge to determine whether in fact the tile bed did continue at a lower level.  The cut measured 4.00 m x .50 m, was located .65 m east of the western edge, and went down to bedrock at 90 cm.  Though a few scattered pieces of tile, pottery, and bone were found, there was definitely no tile layer.


A new trench 1AH was laid out 3.00 m x 18.25 m east of 1AF which together with 1AG completed the three-metter strip along the southern edge of the wall. Finds were similar to those in 1AF - only a few scattered tiles. ( )

Complex 5


To designate the area south of the rectangular structure in complex 1 a new complex system was adopted. Accordingly the new trench laid out 3 x 8 m and at right angles to 1AD moving south was numbered 5A. ( )



A new trench was started parallel to 1AG, .  Topsoil was taken off and bedrock began to appear.
