Daily Trench Journal

Area D

Trench 8


Today we were able to follow several pre-existing walls after we took down locus 86, which is the fill/cleaning locus for the newly opened part of the trench.

Once we had traced all these walls I was able to assign new loci. The new walls were two sections of wall that extended into the new eastern baulk. I made the paralleling pieces of wall extensions of the pre-existing walls L70 and L71. L70 is the northern most wall while L71 is below it to the south.

 For the new section of L71 we only found one row of brick though in other area of wall L71 there are two and three rows. Once these walls were completely articulated I assigned three new loci to the new areas created by the walls in the northeast corner. The area enclosed by wall L70 and the baulks became L88. South of that was another small enclosed ‘room’ which appears to line up with the other two small rooms. This area became L87. To the south of that we have L89, which does not have borders of walls but instead is partially bordered in the west by the circle of rocks L81.

We also brought down Loci 78 and 69 several centimeters.

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.
