July 23, 1987
Work continued in meters I-K/86-87 lowering the cut down to 80-85 cm. Here two major soil types continue to be uncovered. The upper layer (about 60-75 or 80 cm) was grayish soil with plaster in chunks and disintegrated in it with some tile and ceramic. Below this level was found a heavy black burn layer of a fairly dry consistency.
Almost all material from this burn layer was blackened and burned also. It included some tiles, very little plaster, and some pottery. Almost two latte boxes of bone were collected in these meters, most of which came from the burn layer. More than two latte boxes of mixed ceramics were found, much of which came from just above the burn layer and the burn layer. A small bit of bronze was found also. Several fragments of pithos were found; those in the burn layer were burned.
Moving east, the area under the stump which was cleaned and removed yesterday from H/89-90 was further cleaned down to expose large fragments of pan tile lying quite horizontal. A few fragments of cover tile were also right
in this area. This whole tile fall area continued to be cleared down from 89-90. A heavy black burn layer was visible underneath the large pieces of tile, particularly back towards the northern baulk wall in G and H.
