Daily Log

July 24, 1987


The western baulk of T-22 was scraped down roughly 10 cm in preparation for a section drawing.  D-I were completed.  A rocchetto was found in F/54 at 30 cm, the level of a tile fall visible in the baulk.  This tile rests on top of a yellow, sandy layer and below a dark brown layer.

Rock pack in L/55-R/56 was cleaned and photographed.  Tiles on these rocks were then lifted.

L-N/54 was brought down to ~135 cm level.  Soil in this cut revealed heavy burn layer.  Roughly two tall latte boxes of pottery were filled.










  • Find 7
  • C/54 from baulk/rock area
  • ~1 m
  • Lateral sima cavetto fragment with red paint


(J. Muccigrosso - trench master pro temp.)

Soil and tiles were lifted from rock pack L-R/56 as in AM.  130 cm level (T-22, 140 cm) continued into P/54.  Burn layer was evident in cut.  It appears at this point that the burn layer seen in T-22 extends into this area (although at a slightly deeper level).

~3 1/2 latte boxes found of similar materials to previous day's cut.  (4 1/2 with morning).  ~1 cassetta of tile and plaster.

Northern end at T-22 cleaned further.  Unexcavated soil in A/53-4 yielded several creamware pieces and 1 larger grayware fragment.  ~1 small latte box pottery.

Rockfall in D-E/54-55 continued to be excavated.  Some tile revealed amid rocks.  Lateral sima cavetto found there.

(Trench measurements taken by architect to place on updated map of site.)
