Daily Log


June 14, 1976

Work continued in the first cut cleaning down to the tile layer.  Large stones were noted in grids P 32-33, possibly the continuation of the north wall of room T 18 (north extension).

The puzzling absence of finds in the last few days might be due to the fact that we have not dug deep enough in grids OP 32-33.  The ground slopes sharply at this point and the tile layer

and the red earth stratum are at a relatively deeper level.

In grids N-O 33 a heavy concentration of carbon, running from north to south, was encountered (a beam?).  Also in evidence were larger hunks of burnt plaster.

The stones in grids P 32-33 are indeed a wall.  The red earth stratum continues to the north was far as this wall.

In grids N-O 34 more heavy carbon was encountered.

Pottery was again scarce- coarseware predominates.  A few pieces of pithos turned up, probably more of the same pithos that we found a few days ago.  Fineware is very scarce, although a few pieces of good bucchero have turned up.
