Daily Trench Journal

Area C

Trench 1

15 June 2005

Today I want to work on determining how far down the two mud brick walls (L1110 and L1111) continue.

In the removal of L1114, the fill on the eastern side of L1110 and along the eastern baulk, The ground is very hard and compact, almost claylike. There are also many small charcoal flecks throughout the matrix and a good amount of larger bits of carbon that have been removed as samples.

In the removal of L1113, the fill locus between the two mud brick walls (L1111 and L1110), we seem to be coming down on something. There are many hard clumps of dirt lifting off in the center. Also more carbon. The walls seem to continue down at least 5 cm. A few more mud bricks along L1110. Also a few in the center, but nothing too clear. The dirt in the fill seems to be pretty normal, not too hard or soft. Not too much pottery either. There was some sort of white chaffy material coming up in the dirt, partially flat lying, but it never flaked off nicely and Bradley thought there might be more in the matrix as opposed to some sort of old grain stash. We will see if that continues. We are trying to go down another 10-15cm to see about the extent of the walls. They continue down at least 10cm from their current truncated height.

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.
