Tuesday June 21, 1994


Work continued with pick and shovel today. The backfill from T-6 is clerly visible in the center of the trench- it has far fewer roots and stones.

Despite this distinction between backfill and stratified soil, it seemed best to remove a few centimeters of soil over the entire trench before excavating in proper stratigraphic order. We finish this partial topsoil removal at the end of the morning. When scraped with a trowel the areas of untouch stratigraphy and backfill from T-6 were quite distint. The fill consisted of soft sticky clay with few roots but many spots of carbon. The soil surrounding it on the west- east sides of the trench is dryer, more compact, and full of roots and stones.


Work in the maggazino.
