Daily Log

July 20, 1999


An initial pickpass is taken through meters E124/S21. The soil still remains as topsoil with heavy amount of roots and thus remains desginated as locus 1. Work progesses slowly as some stumps/roots are removed and others worked around. A second pickpass is taken through meters E124/S22. Relatively small amount of material continue to be removed from this area, wihtout only about 40 shards of terra cotta/tile, 2 pieces of impasto, 1 shard of coarseware, and 1 fragment of bone recovered at the conclusion of the morning. At the time of the lunch break, the area concentrated on for the morning has been levelled down to appr ground level. No finds are desginated from the morning's work.


Having levelled the rise in meters E124/S21-2 in the morning, the afternoon's work concentrates on meters E125/S21-22. An initial cut is taken through the topsoil of meter E125/S21. This area, to be differentiated from the area of the rise, is designated as locus 2. A second pickpass is then taken through meter E125/S22. Like the topsoil of the preceeding workday, the soil contains relatively small amounts of material. At the conclusion of the afternoon and two pickpasses, 2 teeth, 8 shards of impasto, and about 20 small fragments of terra cotta/tile had been recovered. One find, a well-worn ridged rim of impasto, was desginated.
