July 18, 1994

The floor of meters M/71-76 was cleaned and defined to a depth of 100-105 cm.  Two relatively well preserved cover tiles, one in M/76 and one in M/71, were defined for photography.

The trench floor in these meters, with the exception of the soil impacted around the tiles, is a dark soil with heavy carbon inclusion.  The soil impacted around the covertiles is medium orangy brown with plaster and carbon inclusions.  The floor cleaning produced about 2/3 of a latte box of pottery and 1/3 a cassetti of tile.

Work began in meters K/74-75, which was dominated by a large stump.  The stump was removed.  The soil within and around the stump was rather different than anything encountered so far this year in T-26.  Soil was extremely rocky and yellowish in color.

Occasional pieces of tile were present, along with sporadic pottery.  Most of this soil pocket has been removed and it seems to have almost entirely concentrated below the stump.
