July 7, 1982


Tile: 7 Pottery: 4 1/2

Meters U,V, W-74 were taken to floor level (~40-50 cm) throughout the meters. A large concentra-

tion of carbonized wood was exposed in V-74 at ~40cm and this was left in place for photography later. The floor appears to extend throughout these meters (U,V, W-74). A heavy burn layer -- carbonized wood, burnt cermic material, dark, black soil -- was immediately above the floor in meters V, W - 74, but so much in U - 74. The soil above the burn layer was brown-light, with tile mixed in. Large vessel fragments, pithos, were found in this area. A bronze fibula, today's find #4 was found early, and work slowed to very carefull inspection of the soil in wheelbarrows.

Meters U,V,W -71-73 were mapped out and the top soil removed in this area. A bulk was left between this extension and the U,V,W -74-76 extension to allow a section to be drawn. The topsoil of U,V,W-71-73 was dark brown and rooty.

Work continued in exposin the tile in M,N,O - 77-79 at ~80 cm. Tile continued to be found, though mainly in small, scattered fragments.

Work also continued in excavating the area surrounding the ivories found in R-74 at ~40 cm. This work continued with dental tools.

Note that bronze fragments and shell were found.




Work was confined to the magazino this afternoon.
