No work was done this morning due to lack of personnel.

In the afternoon work continued in S 26, E 138 removing the baulk.  The remainder of LOCUS 19 was removed to a depth of 65 cm b.d.  This produced 2 bone fragments, 3 pottery sherds and 2 bits of tile.

Below this was a darker brown soil with heavier inclusions of carbon, LOCUS 20, this layer extended to a depth of approx. 73 cm b.d., although in the eastern 30 cm of the area the carbon was much heavier at approx. 71-72 cm b.d. and still rematins in particles.  The soil below the carbon filled soil, which began appearing 72-73 cm was a yellowish color.  From LOCUS 20 3/4 of a latte box of pottery and bone- some of the sherds exhibiting signs of burning- 16-18 fragments of tile and plaster were recovered along with (#1) an impasto rim, and a bucchero conical foot w/ tondo (#2)

The lower 4-5 cm of todays work also extended southward into S27, E 138 approximately 10 cm, leaving a narrow area along the orientalizing

P.M. (cont)

wall to protect the integrity of the wall.  This soil was included in the Locus 20 due to the continuity of the stratigraphy.
