Only a small amount of pottery - 7 latte boxes - was recovered during the limited excavation of T22 West extension in 1992. The pottery consisted primarily of coarseware but limited amounts of impasto and orangeware and a few pieces of bucchero and creamware were found.  There appeared to be no specific pattern to the deposition of pottery recovered, but rather, it was evenly distributed throughout the excavated areas.  Much of the pottery was blackened from burning and a few pieces were extremely friable.  No full profiles were recovered.  In addition, the pottery discovered during the excavation of T22 West Extension in 1992 seemed to be generally consistent

with that found in 1991.  However, since relatively little additional excavation was undertaken in the trench in 1992, it is not possible to draw any broad conclusions.  The pottery found in 1992 was broken down and stored with that excavated by N. Meyer above the stone pack in 1991 in the following representative boxes:

  • T-22 West Extension 1991-1992
  • Representative Box I
