Daily Log


July 29, 1968


Virgin soil was reached throughout the southern end of the trench.  Just above it and extending 5.60 m N was a continuation of the black soil (stratum D) from 6A sloping upward from 110 cm depth to 85 cm.  The floor of the trench itself sloped upward from 145 cm by the dyke at the southern end to 65 cm for the stones at the northern end.  It thus appears that the ground falls away sharply at the southern end of Tesoro, and that the foundations in 6A are not necessarily on a lower level than those in 6B and complex 2.  The earth lying over the wall in 6A would then be largely fill.

TI, Test Trench 8

The trench was extended 5 m east; bedrock as along the south wall further east quickly surfaced throughout the extension.  Thus it seems as if the semi-circular projection at 1040 E and the other stone formations along the wall belong to an earlier building.

TI, Test Trench 9

STones were cleaned for a distance of 9.40 m along the north wall.  Sicne no suports of any kind for columns were found, digging was stopped.
