This morning cuts were taken in meters A-B/4-6 and E-F/5-6 to a depth of ca. 30 cm. The soil in both areas was light brown in color and contained a large number of roots and small rocks. At a depth of ca. 25 cm. sporadic pockets of grey, clay-like soil also began to appear. In addition, a concentration of small rocks was found running along the eastern flank of the trench in meters A-B/6. This area was cleared down with hammer and mestalina for further definition. However, it will require an additional cut to determine the nature and extent of their placement. Both cuts yielded only a few, small fragments of tile and coarse pottery.


This afternoon cuts were taken in meters B/5-6 and E-F/6 to a depth of ca. 55 cm. Beginning at a depth of ca. 30 cm, the soil in both cuts changed to galestra. No material was recovered from either cut. In addition, further cleaning of the rock concentration in meters A-B/6 revealed the stones to be only randomly placed and they were removed. A cut was also taken in meter D/1 to a depth of 40cm.  The soil here was light brown in color and contained many roots and small rocks.  No material was discovered in the cut.
