The trench was swept and photographed. A protective coat of PVA was then applied to the plaster lining the sides and found on the "floor" level of the forno in meters H-I/11-12.

Excavation of the ca. 20cm strip along the central portion of meters H-I/13 continued to a depth of ca. 100cm. No additional traces of the band of red stained soil were encountered in this area. It is possible that there is a "break" in the band, or, that the heat from the burning which produced

the red soil was not uniform in all areas. Further clearing will be necessary, however, to determine more precisely the extent of the red stained soil.

Clearing also continued further to the north in meters H-I/14-15 in an attempt to locate more of the band of red stained soil of the lower forno in this area. The soil in these meters was gray-black in color and contained much carbon and disintegrated yellow and res plaster. At the end of the morning, this area had been cleared to a depth of ca. 100-105cm.

One half of a box impasto sherds, including many burned pieces, were discovered in the dark soil.
