August 1, 1972

Work continued in Trench 18.

In the morning, Galuzzi cleared the red pottery in grids L-M/30.  This area produced three cassetti of reddish burned bucchero, including more fine molded handles, pressed-tongue types and attached knobs.  All the pottery lies approx. 90 cm below topsoil, above a heavy carbon layer, which is perhaps a wooden beam.

In the afternoon, Galuzzi continued lifting the red tile layer in J/29.  Here, the pottery is not as concentrated and consists primarily of plain, rimmed, stemmed bucchero bowls burned to a reddish-orange.

Two men began to take out the nourth-south dike running along the 31 meter line between the 30th and 31st meters.  They removed the topsoil and part of the brown soil layer (see profiles on p. 172 and p. 106 ).

  • 2 cassetti of tiles discarded

The pithos fragments projecting from the north wall of T-19 were removed and discarded.

For finds from red layer, see JN II.
