STRATEGY: Finish excavation of 1504 to see if large rocks are wall tumble. Begin another spit (1505) underneath.

SUMMARY: Completed excavation of 1504. Large rocks do look as if they are aligned south-northeast, but they could also be just tumble. Finds included pot, bone, flint, reconstructable pot (from yesterday) and a number of small finds (see sketch) including 3 sling stone, a perforated pot disc fragment and a pipe bowl (?) fragment. 2 of the weights were found near the reconstructabl epot scatter (which is not a surface, just a dump also indicating the stones mentioned above are not part of a wall). The soil from the southern quarter was sieved for any other reconstructable pot fragments or small finds. NB the reconstructable pot sherds were bagged seperately, though some missing sherds may be in the other ceramic bag for the 5th Aug. Began excavation of 1505: an arbitrary spit of c, 7cm beneath 1504. Same fully developed soil as 1504 and they are probably the same lot in reality. Fewer late roof tile fragments present, but still plenty of calcite flecks and rootlets indicative of soil formation. These fully developed soil lots suggest that the Tepe probably had a stable surface for about 1000 years. Lots 1501 to 1505 are approximately 1m deep all together and we expect to come into prehistoric lots shortly (1501-1505 representing the late periods on the Tepe).
