Final Summary

During 1997 excavation season T 21 west baulks section was reestablished and brought to the sterile soil level except in five southernmost meters of the baulk, where a section trench was not excavated due to lack of time.  Section trench revealed a distinctive burn layer, which is most probably associated with destruction of the orientalizing structures on the site, and seems to continue from South East Building to Lower Building.  Material was most highly concentrated in the burn layer. It included

numerous fragments of fine and decorated pottery, cut antlers and metal objects.  Quantity and quality of the material increased in areas where the burn layer formed lenses.

Some material also came from the higher stratum of light brown soil.  The cavetto fragments found in this stratum allow to identify it with later, archaic structure, Upper Building.  Section cuts made next to the foundations of the South Building revealed the presence of the burn layer underneath it.  This shows that the South Building post dates the orientalizing structures on

the site but pre dates teh archaic structure.
