Continued to remove the dark brown soil (Locus 32).  Work continued defining the northern extent of the pinkish plaster, and also lowering the dark brown soil to approximately 80-72 cm b.d.  Three flat stones were defined in the eastern baulk projecting approximately 25-30 cm.

As this work will continue in the afternoon, pottery, bone, and tile quantities will be recorded then.


Continued work removing the darkish brown soil (Locus 32), lowering the trench floor to approximately 73 cm b.d. in meters E138-139/S23.  The remaining portions of the trench north of the area of the pinkish plaster were lowered to approximately 71-72 cm b.d.

Work continued around the three flat stones, and it was discovered that the southernmost stone was resting on top of another stone.

Today's work in Locus 32 produced 3 full latte boxes of pottery and bone fragments, 1/3 of a cassetta of tile and plaster fragments, mainly pan-tile.  A larger section of pantile, approximately 50 x 40 cm, was exposed in meter E138/S23 and left in situ.  Also recovered were an incised impasto rim (1), a fragment of ridged impasto (2), a piece of decorated bucchero (#3), an incised rim (4), and an orangeware handle with a large section of the body preserved (#5).
