A.M. photos taken

Continued work in the area of Locus 7, levelling the area beneath the rocks removed last friday.  The area was taken to approximately 57-58 cm.b.d.  More fragments of the impasto bowl with notched carination and incision were recovered (#1,2,3).  The majority of the pieces (#1) came out immediately below the pieces found last week, but the overall spread of the vessel fragments was approximately 40-50 cm on the horizontal, and roughly 25-30 cm on the vertical axis.  23 fragments of tile, and 7 fragments of pottery, including another portion of the cooking bell found friday were recovered and 1 bone.

When this work was completed, a cut was begun moving westward through meters S25-26 E139-137.  The soil here remained consistent with the Locus 5 soil, however it was decided to redesignate this cut as Locus 8 in order to encompass the areas of Locus 5 and 7.  Locus 8 was opened at roughly 55 cm. throughout the trench.  Work here will continue in the afternoon, and so quantities of recovery will be recorded then.

This morning's cut westward through the trench was completed.  The soil, designated as Locus 8, was medium brown with occasional carbon and whitish inclusions.  Two fragments of bronze (#5 & 7) and a piece of ridged impasto rim (#6) were recovered.

A second cut, from a starting depth of approximately 60-65 cm.b.d., was taken through meters S25-26, E139-138.  At approximately the meter line between E139-138 a yellowish dense soil with a mottled appearance was discovered,    this was designated as Locus 9 [                                                        ].

Locus 8 produced an almost full latte box of pottery and bone, and 30-35 small fragments of terracotta/tile (7-5 cm. and smaller).

Locus 9 produced 15 fragments of pottery and 5 bone fragments and two very small bits of terracotta.
