Daily Trench Journal

Area C

Trench 1

August 4, 2002

Today Marie was sick and had to retire after a few hours on site. However, she started excavation as follows: finished C.1.1098 area to south of "fire or mud screen" in which may be oven remains or ashy pit. The west side of wall C.1.1089 has articulated during removal of a fill to the west of that wall (C.1.1089). The fill was removed (about 10cm) as C.1.1096. Under it lies a fairly convincing possible surface and in the northern part an ashy irregular pit like area was revealed (to the south of the pit C.1.1091).

A pit was excavated near the south baulk as C.1.1100. On its northern edge it abuts the end on end lying mudbricks of C.1.1087 so it was able to provide a section of those bricks. Underneath the brick layer (in the pit side) there is a 1-2cm gray layer overlying a white line that does not extend to the west of the (fallen?) end-on-end mudbricks of C.1.1087. Pit C.1.1100 is visible in section and so excavation was extended to the south baulk (possible mudbrick or collapse) at abound 15 cm down in that pit. Stones and possible mudbrick were revealed in east side of pit C.1.1100.

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.
