Work continued in E140/S23-24 troweling through the darker brown, carbon-included soil (Locus 41).  Some soil has been left around the grouping of stones (Locus 34) -- the three flat stones stacked on top of a second layer of stones -- to prevent them from being dislodged.  However, today's work in this area revealed several tile fragments on the south side of the stones which may extend beneath them.  Further definition of this area is needed.

This work produced 17 very small bits of tile and terracotta, along with 2/3 of a latte box of pottery and bone.  Also found in this area were a fragment of a ridged impasto rim (#2), an incised bucchero rim (#3), a spindle whorl (#4), and a fragment of bucchero with an incision (#6).

In E136-137/S23-24, work was done with trowels removing the upper 2-3 cm of the dark brown soil with carbon (Locus 42).  This work produced 37 tile fragments and 2 1/4 latte boxes of pottery, including a number of coarseware fragments which may be from the same vessel.  Also

found in this work were a fragment of incised impasto (#1) and a fragment of painted pottery (#5).
