Stratigraphic Summary

This season's excavations revealed a clear and distinct stratigraphy consisting of four distinct layers.  The first layer excavated was designated Locus 12; it was not finished last season, and was characterized by its yellow-brown soil.  Moderate amounts of pottery and bone with extremely fryable plaster and tile.

The second layer is distinguished by its pinkish color due to extremely high plaster concentrations.  A concentration of bronze within meters E186/S49-50 also occurs within this layer.  This layer contains large amounts of decorated pottery, as well as carved bone, bronze fragments, and reed-impressed plaster.

The third layer is the dark grayish brown soil, designated a burn layer.  This layer yielded the majority of the material and provided several diagnostic pieces.

The final layer is a yellow-olive brown color with a moderate amount of material, which then dwindles off to galestra.

The stratigraphy around the trench is consistent and only seems to vary due to natural interventions, such as the tree in the west baulk.
