Clearing with brushes and mestaline continued in meters J-K711-12 to a depth of ca. 60 cm.  The soil througout most of meters J-K/11 consisted of very "flaky" galestra and contained no material.  The soil in meters J-K/12 was grey-brown in color with many small stones and roots.  Three quarters of a box of impasto pottery was discovered in the grey-brown soil as well as some small chunks of carbonized wood.  Clearing also continued in meters J-K/15 and the northern portion of meters J-K/14 to a depth of ca. 122 cm.  The soil in the excavated northern portion of J-K/14 consisted of fine galestra.  Galestra also appeared

along the western edge of meter J/15.  The soil throughout the rest of meter J/15 and in meter K/15 was light grey to brown in color.  No material was discovered in this soil.  Clearing with mestaline and brushes also began in the southern portion of meter H/15.  This area had been previously excavated to a depht of ca. 125 cm. last year.  The soil here was dark brown in color and contained a high concentration of carbonized wood and small pieces of vitrified tile.  One half of  a box of impasto and coarseware sherds, including several burned pieces, three pieces of bone and a few small pieces of worn tile were discovered in the dark brown soil.  One piece of slag was also found.
