Daily Log

July 25, 1987


P-Q/54 was brought down to 130 cm mark.  In these two meters, six handle fragments were found (five of them orangeware).  A large lip fragment of an orangeware vessel and several body fragments were also found in this area.  Roughly three tall latte boxes of assorted pottery were filled.

Of particular interest was the discovery of a large, rounded stone in grid Q/54-55.  This large stone rests beside and west of the rockpack.  The stone also seems to lie in line with the large stone in T-22 -- a line perpendicular to the upper building.  The presence of this large stone explains the rocky soil which was encountered in this area.  Natural erosion




and winter water damage (ice damage) would chip this stone away year after year.  West of this large stone is a large terracotta piece - probably a cover tile, although oddly shaped.

One fine, stamped rocchetto was also found in P/54.

T-22 clean-up continued.  Two pieces of creamware and one oddly shaped handle were found in B/54.  A lip fragment of a buccheroid vessel was also found in unexcavated grid.
