Today we have removed the sub topsoil. It was very interesting because we have found some human bones, I tried to articulate them and not to remove them from their places. And I wanted Rick to take a look at them and he said that they are human. Part of the bones continue into the west baulk.

We excavated for 25 cm and then I wanted my workers to sweep the dirt off and closed up for today.

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.
