Area I

Trench 1

August 11, 2002

Daily Journal

We started the day excavating L16 and L17. Both loci seem to have fairly similar soil. They are a silty, light brown. We found a very small amount of mudbrick in each. We started L18 with only about a half hour left, thus we didn’t finish it. Musa and Isamael did, however, find a large amount of mudbrick. I didn’t have the time to jump in there, so we’ll see tomorrow. The North Baulk is about 4 meters deep at the current time.

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.
