Daily Logs

29 th July 2010


Began the day by completing a pick-pass of the western meter of the trench. Removed the stones that were present upon opening the trench, as well as removing two of the smaller stumps along the western perimeter. The soil in Locus 1 remains a very dark brown with many roots, and small and medium sized rocks. A large concentration of root-rot was removed around the large stump on the northern wall. Another pick-pass of the whole trench was completed. A few pieces of pottery and two and a half bowls of tile fragments were recovered.


Work temporarily suspended due to rain. Upon resumption, trench was picked in the eastern half and then the western half. Soil slightly lighter in colour with less roots and rocks present. The two stumps in the north-east corner were cleaned partially.

Continued to find pottery and terracotta.
