Daily Log

July 25, 1972

Work continued in Trenches 18 and 19, the north extensions.

T-18 L-M/28-30:

The bucchero layer was lifted in the morning, producing approximately 2 cassetti of bucchero fragments.  No complete vessels were evident: the fragments were scattered and the vases did not appear to be dropped whole.  A few bones and two pieces of iron were found among the pottery fragments - also many pieces of an impasto vessel, and a few terracotta tiles.

  • 1/2 cassette of tiles discarded

For finds, see JN III, p. 175.

T-19 J-M/34-35:

In the morning, the men continued to clean above the tile fall in J-L/34-35 and above the pithos.  The trenchw as extended slightly to the north, removing the surface rocks, to make it even with the north wall of grids M/31-33.  This area revealed more of the pithos.  In the afternoon, the workmen began to extend this trench to the east by 1/2 meter (J-M/36).


  • Find #1
