Daily Trench Journal

Area C

Trench 1

June 19, 2005

The walls are continuing down. I will take the center section down 10cm before breafast to try to trace the wall extent again.

We are coming down between the walls 1111 and 1110. The southern half appears to be normal cultural fill. The northern half is coming up with a great deal of small stones and pebbles. We are now taking down 1-2cm from the top with trowels to preserve the possible surface.

The pebble surface (1117) covers the extent of ground in the nrothern half of the trench between walls 1111 and 1110. I think we are now below the walls of the southern side, but hopefully this will become more clear as the sun bakes the bricks over the next couple of days. Tomorrow I will HAP this surface. Meanwhile we are scraping down the south of 1113 and cleaning up the interior of the walls. Then we will start taking down 1108 on west of walls to get to the same depth on both sides of L1111.

Has note The purpose of the daily journal was to record the activities taking place in a trench each day. This included which loci were excavated, how and why loci were excavated and the ongoing impressions of the relationships among loci. It should be noted that journals record the actions, impressions and ideas of trench supervisors during the excavations. They are not, therefore, the final interpretations or syntheses of the emerging data.
