A.M. Photos Taken

Work continued in meters S27-28, E136-138 lowering the area to a consistent level and defining around the rocks in the area. The soil remained consistant and is still designated as Locus 1. Several lareg fragments of pan tile were recovered, along with pottery and bone (quantities will be recorded in the afternoon). Large portions of yellowish impasto rim and neck were recovered in meter S27, E136 around 55-60cm combined. A fragment of ionic pottery (#1) was also recovered.

Backfill was removed from the east half of R14.




Continued trowling in meters S27, E136-138 defining the stones. They do not yet seem to have any regular formation and may be fill from the Upper Building construction. More of the yellowish impasto, perhaps orangeware, vessel from meter S27, E136 was recovered. The vessel seems to be sitting upright, and portions of the walls extend further into the floor, at depths of approxomately 65cm b.d. , so it is not certain how much of it is preserved. This meter was drawn with the vessel and a large stone indicated; the stone was then removed because it is clearly unassociated with those toward the east in meters E137-138. The soil throught this work was consistant with this morning. In the northeast corner of S27, E138 some darker soil with carbon was revealed and left unexcivated. This work produced 30-40 fragments of tile and 1/4 of a box of pottery and bone. A very thick and irregular particle of flange (#2) and two thick pieces of tile with a finished edge (#3) were also found. The orangeware vessel noted above was also made a find(#4).
