Daily Trench Journal

Area C

Trench 1

13 June 2005

Yesterday I was sick, so I missed a day of excavation.

Today I am trying to understand a bit of what is happening in my trench. So when cleaning up the back, raised, mud brick portion, the center ended up being soft and forming a sort of oven shape, but there wasn’t much if any ash. So I took a photo of the shape and removed it. That leaves us with the two mud brick stubs and the surface between them. The mud brick stubs are directly below the stone walls removed during the 2002 and 2003 field seasons. Bradley, Andy and I think that the mud brick walls were the pre-existing architectural features. Then later the stone walls were added to preexisting architecture. The surface seems to fit nicely between them. So tomorrow I will take an HAP sample of the surface. So perhaps this was a house, at least two walls and then the surface.

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.
