July 24, 1987


Work continued clearing down the rock pack along JK/88-90 in an effort to further define the character and parameters.  Some tile fell in this area a bit north of the rock pack and at about its same level as opposed to a bit higher like the rest of the tile fall.  A heavy black dry burn layer lay around the rocks and tiles.  Bone and some pottery was found here.

Additionally, the area directly to the north of the tile fall in G/89-90 was cleared down to about 75 cm.  The tile fall comes in about 35-40 cm above the trench floor level in these meters with a heavy black burn layer most of that space.  The soil at around 75 cm included a heavy yellow clay-like soil.

Above H to the north of the tile fall was more gray brown with a bit of carbon.  Directly underneath the tile fall and visible from the southwest was the heavy black burn layer.  The rocks to the west along 86 were cleaned a bit.  Mostly the soil here was gray brown with a little plaster, tile, and ceramic.  Most notable among finds was an odd ceramic piece with deep incisions.
