Work continued in clearing meters J-K/12 with brushes and mestaline to a depth of ca. 64 cm.  The soil in these meters was grey-brown in color with many roots and small rocks.  These rocks display no regularity in their placement, but rather, are randomly scattered througout this area.  A small concentration of carbon chunks was discovered around the stump in the southwest corner of meter J/12.  Notable was the discovery of 2 bronze pins, both found amdist carbon concentrations, in meter J/12.  Three quarters of a box of impasto and coarseware sherds was found in the grey-brown soil.  At the end of the moring a pocket of galestra soil appeared along the eastern and central portion

of meter K/12.  Clearing with mestaline and brushes also continued in meters J-K/15, the northern edge of meters J-K714 and the southeastern edge of meter K/16.  The soil in teh northern edge of meters J-K/14 and the majority of meter J/15 consisted of galestra.  However, the soil in meter K/15 and in the southeastern corner of K/16 was light grey in color with some small roots.  No material was found in this area.  The trench floor in meters G-H/15 and the western half of meter I/14 was cleared to a depth of 140 cm.  The soil in the western half of meter I/15 and along the eastern edge of H/15 was grey-brown in color and contained a light concentration of small carbon chunks and disintegrated red and

yellow plaster.  One half of a box of impasto sherds was discovered in the grey brown soil.  The soil througout most of meter H715 and all of meter G/15 consisted of galestra.  No material was found in the galestra soil.  Clearing continued in meter H/14 and the western half of meter I714 to a depth of 120 cm.  The soili here was dark brown in color with a heavy concentration of small chunkis of carbonized wood and disintegrated yellow and red/orange plaster.  In addition, a number of small stones were uncovered at the bottom of the cleared area.  These stones, moreover, appear to extend south into the edge of meter H/14.  Further clearing willl be necessary to determine their placement

and possible significance.  One box of impasto sehrds, including some burned pieces, one quarter of a bag of small pieces of vitrified tile and three pieces of bone were found in the grey brown soil.  Three small pieces of slag were also found in meter I/14 at a dpeth of ca. 120 cm.
