T-26 Summary: Students briefly continued to clean down the rock/tile packing at 45-60 cm.  Tile: negl.  Pottery: negl.

T-23 Summary: The 60 cm cut was continued in meter B/12.  Tile: 1/2.  Pottery: Negl.

The 60 cm cut was continued in B/12 with pick and careful checking of the soil in the wheelbarrow.  The area NE of the stump on the wall of meter B/12 and A/12, where yesterday's find #46 was found, was excavated first - yielding more ivory fragments which appear to be of the same object as #46.  This area around the stump was also rich in other ivory pieces.  The soil continues to display burn layer - orange, light, with carbon.

Meter B/11 was also excavated to 60 cm.


  • Find #1
  • B/12
  • 60 cm
  • Large circular ivory piece, very similar to piece #46 yesterday.  8 major fragments, one of which may be a stone.  One fresh break.







T-23 Summary: The 60 cm cut was continued in meter B/12.  Tile: neg.  Pottery: neg.

Work continued as the morning in meter B/12.  The soil still shows evidence of a burn layer - orange, light, with carbon.

Loose soil was left unchecked but covered with a wheelbarrow when work was stopped by a thunderstorm.
