Daily Log

Thursday June 30, 2005


The day began with baulk wall work.  We also took a trowel pass of the western half of the trench's northern extension in order to furnther define the rocks in that area.

A second small patch of soil with a relatively high carbon content came up in the southern "baulk"of the extension.  The carbon patch is apprximately the size of a pancake and is extremely shallow, about 1 cm deep.

Clearing of the dirt fromt he trowel pass was completed and we took final photos and closing elevations.  The dig director came by and confirmed that the wall had been sufficiently exposed and that the extension was closed.

Closing elevations for Locus 3 and the extension itslef were as follows:

  • NW:     110 cm b.d. (A)      24.47 m absolute elevation
  • SE:     152.5 cm b.d. (A)      24.045 m absolute elevation
  • NE:     140 cm b.d. (A)      24.17 m absolute elevation
  • SW:     100 cm b.d. (A)*      24.57 m absolute elevation
  • center:     124 cm b.d. (A)     24.33 m absolute elevation

*  This point, as previously mentioned on pages 31 and 33, remained stable.

Material Yield for June 30:

  • Locus 3
    • 8 small pieces of terracotta (roughly 1/16 of a bowl)
    • 0 pottery
