Daily Log 15 July 2009


Began work with a pickpass down northern end of the trench. The soil appeared to be changing to match the olive soil in south. In an effort to remove all mottled soil from trench, a pocket of heavy carbon soil was discovered in the southwest corner (57S/178E). Baulk walls were trimmed to expose the potential feature. Within the olive soil, large fragments of roofing tile have been exposed.


The decision that the olive soil was just part of the Orientalizing destruction scrape was made and the pockets of carbon attributed to root systems. Locus 6, mottled soil designation remains. 1 box of pottery/bone and 1 bowl of terracotta recovered. A cover tile with finger prints was found in a pick pass of the southern portion of the trench.
