Daily Trench Journal

Area H, Trench 2

May 25, 2005

M. Baldi

Today’s plan is simple; get to the two (2) meter in depth mark before we make what may be a temporary decision to abandon this trench for an area with better contexts. We are excavating on Locus 12, which appears to be a pretty wide band of fill, perhaps a little grayer in color, which may indicate, remains of some ancient conflagration. When the soil began changing to a more reddish color I again changed the locus to Locus # 13 and continued excavating this for the remaining of the day.

The workers today were: Cengiz Ildeniz (10), Siddik Cicek (7.5), Idris Yilmaz (6.5), and Burhan Bozcali (6).

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.
