First we decided upon all the loci for the day. We started articulating the rock pile L1014. Then we started to remove L1006, we first removed 5cm to level with the rocks in L1015. But we couldn't find anymore rocks. We are going down there. We cut at an angle parallel to the wall.

And we started digging in L1018. The soil seems to be the same as L1007 but there are 2 loci separating that from L1007 so we decided to separate it. We will go down 10 cm in L1009 and are articulating my wall. The rocks in L1015 and L1014 are not related, there is a part of hard soil between them. There might be mud bricks between the rock pile L1014 and the wall.

We will clean and articulate the wall for a photo. We never cleaned the wall but we did articulate the West part and we went a little deeper in the West half of L1009.

Also we leveled L1018 with L1014 to see lines. And we worked a little on the mud brick lines And we worked a little on the mud brick. "And Andy worked on our baulk and he kicked the rocks there. Now we have holes in our section." But Peter found a piece of his pot in the dirt. So we kept that! But we won't keep the other pieces. We were articulating the wall but it doesn't have an order and we found a piece of that shiny crumbly rock again.

We end the day with a lot of rocks exposed to no explanation. So today, in recap, we cleaned the rock pile L1014, we articulated it a lot, it doesn't seem to go much further. We leveled off the Northeast corner(L1010,L1018,L1014) to look for bricks since it seems to have different coloration and some hard surfaces.

We leveled what was left of L1006 North of the wall. We have only a piece of mudbrick leftover. We also began dropping the Southwest side around the rocks of L1012 and the South side L1009 which is South of the wall. It is very much just dirt and not hard outside the wall. We have found almost nothing in that area. There are a lot of rocks, broken pottery and possibly brick in the Southwest corner.

We are still anxious about taking out L1010, the red brick, until we can clean the surface and search for bricks. There is a nice base on top of the rock pile. There seems to be very little under the Southwest rocks except brickish material.

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.
