First part of the morning was spent finishing excavating locus 15.  Total length of locus 15 is 370cm along the T21 west baulk, encompassing meters S 47-50 E 149-151.  Buring layer rose in S 47-48, E 150-151, its botton reaching 90cm b.s.

Floor of locus 15 was taken down 5cm, reaching 112-116cm b.s., in order to clarify vertical limit of the burn layer in the section.  The soil was sterile.

Material recovered from locus 15 consisted fo 60 small tile fragments (1-6 cm), two of which were vitrified, and 1 2/3 latte cartons of bone and pottery.  Total of 45 bone fragments (numerous teeth), 5 coarseware, 31 redware,

180 impasto fragments, 5 creamware, 3 greyware, and 3 bucchero fragments was found.  Finds included a small fine impasto base, 2 fragments of tondo (part uncovered on 7/31/97), a small spindle whorl, a creamware handle, an amorphous piece of bronze, and a bronze object.

The rest of the morning was spent making a section cut, designated locus 16, which is perpendicular to the west baulk of T 21 and parallel to the south flank of the South Building.  Excavated locus 16 is 110cm in length and 40cm wide running immediately south of the SB foundation stones and east of T21 west baulk.  Its purpose is to establish another section next to

the South Building wall in order to verify the presence of burn layer underneath the foundation stones( see p. 69 ).

Darker soil with green roots, containing some material constituted top 3-5cm of the cut, the rest being clayey sterile soil.  Meters S 47-48, E 151-152.  Material recovered from locus 16 was worn and abraded, and consisted of 11 small tile fragments, 7 impasto and 4 redware fragements.
