Excavatoin with mestalina and brush was continued in meter J/14 and the western half of meter K/14.  The soil was dark brown in color and contained many small stones and roots.  Work in the area, however, was soon stopped because a heavy rain yesterday afternoon had left the soil too wet for careful excavation.  One quarter of a cassetto of small pieces of tile, including several burned fragments, one half of a box of worn impasto and coarseware sherds, and one quarter of a box of bone, also including several burned pieces, were discovered.  In addition, a few small pieces of vitrified tile were also found.  The current depth of teh excavated area in J-K/14-15 is ca. 70-80 cm.




Excavation was continued with mestilina and brush in meters J-K/13-14.  The soil in these meters was dark brown in color and contained light concentrations of carbon.  The entire surface area of J-K/13-14, except for the southern half of K/13, was cleared down to a depth of ca. 85 cm.  The southern half of meter K/13, which had previously been left at a higher level, was cleaned down to ca. 75 cm.  A large amount of coarseware sherds (2.5 boxes), including many burned pieces, and small pieces of tile, also moslty burned, were discovered in meters J-K/13-14.  In addition, a large quantity of bone (1 box) - most all burned - , vitrified tile and a fiew pieces of slag were also recovered.  The majority of this

material was recovered in the northern portion of the excavated area in meters J-K/14.
