Daily Trench Journal

Area D

Trench 8

June 7, 2005


Today we removed half of the eastern baulk expanding the northern section of the trench 1.3 meters in an area 6.2 meters long. This means that when you are looking at the trench while standing on the southern baulk there is a shallow protrusion on the right side on most of the northern side of the trench. This expansion could not have been extended to the whole trench because of the slope of the Tepe. Once this area was done and cleaned we were able to follow walls L70 and L71 eastward until they connected with a north-south wall creating a small (1.4m x 1.02m) interior space. I kept this section of the wall and an extension of L71 because the corner where the new wall met with L71 was the most clear. This means that L71 is not an ‘L’ shaped locus which runs east-west beginning near the west baulk touching L73, continues west for approx 2.5 meters and then turns north before meeting with L70. The enclosed space made by these three walls plus L72 is L83. Due to the problems I had finding surfaces in the other interior spaces (L79 above surface L85 and L80 above surface L82) I plan to go very very slowly in this locus. In addition to working on expanding the trench and bringing down L83 3cm I was able to continue to articulate surface L85.

The part of L77 that runs into the southern baulk showed up in D10 the new trench immediately to the south. It looks like L76 (which runs north south) might also be present in D10. D10 may have L77 touching L76 that I do not have.

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.
