Thursday July 24, 1997


Work started this morning by trimming the south and east baulks of the section trench in meters S 46 E 152-151. Because of the vicinity of the burn layer revealed in the east baulk of the section trench (loci 9,10, 11) to the west frank of the south building, it was decided to make a 40 cm wide and 80 cm long cut, extending eastward towards the south building wall. South baulk of this cut is a continuation of the section trench south baulk. It was designated locus 12. Its location is in metersr S 46, E 151-152. Top 10 cm produced

majority of archaeological material. 50 tile fragments were found, 5 of which were fairly large (10cm) and well preserved cover tile pieces. The rest of the tile fragments were small (1-2cm) adn heavily worn. One full latte carton of pottery recovered included 9 bone fragments, 65 redware, 2 coarseware, 150 impasto fragments as well as a small creamware handle and incised redware fragment. Soil throughout the locus 12 contained medium amounts of carbon and some plaser. Galerstra was reached at a depth of 128 cm bs. Burn layer is evident in both east and norht baulks of the cut.

and its reationship to the west flank of the south building is more clear, since the burn layer appears to be directly underneath the foundation stones.


Photos taken

Baulks were trimmed in meters S 46, E 151-152. Material recovered during baulk trim consisted of 10 tile fragments, 13 bone, 66 impasto, 11 redware, 2 coarseware, and creamware rim, and was designated as locus 13. Floor of loci 10 and 11, in S 44-46, E 151-152 was taken down 5cm, to the depth of 134 cm bs. Burn layer, encountered in S 45 E152, next to east baulk of section trench still continued, extending 20 cm from the baulk. In the rest of th trench galestra was reached. Material recovered from this cut came from the burn layer and

included 10 small worn tile fragments, 3 pieces of bone, 3 coarseware, 5 redware, and 31 impasto fragments as well as creamware rim and moulded redware rim.
