Workmen continued to clear the southern flank of the upper building of brush and shrub.
Work continued in removing the topsoil over
the whole trench. The 1st cut was begun in meters T-77, 78, 79 bringing in the floor level to 25-30 cm. This cut was extended into meters S-77, 78, 79.
The trench is located on the edge of a hill which gradually slopes to the SW. Meters P-77, 78, 79 are thus at a higher level than meters T-77, 78, 79. To avoid confusion the trench floor level will be measured from the edge of the trench at each meter, that is the floor of the trench will slope at the same grade as the surface slopes. The soil of this 1st cut to 30 cm is dark and rooty near the top of the cut, somewhat like topsoil. The remainder of the cut appears to contain redder soil, rich in tile. At the floor level of 30 cm there appears to be a heavy concentration of tile. This is consistent with the stratigraphy uncovered in the T23 trenchs and T26-1981.
Bone was found as well as courseware pottery and glassy slag.
The 30 cm cut was continued to the north into meters R-77, 78, 79. The soil displayed the same characteristics as this morning. An orangeware pot was discovered on the western edge of meters S-77. The base was exposed but the remainder left unexcavated and
covered with a cassetta.
Work halted abruptly at 3:30 PM due to incoming storm.
