June 28, 1972

The area to be excavated, designated T-19, lies to the north of the North Wall.  It is a continuation of the area excavated by Eva Rystedt in 1971 (see her book , especially summary on p. 251-257 ).  and by Anne Booth in June, 1971 ( ).  It follows their grid system.

In the morning, three workmen cleared T-19 E-F/42-43 to approximately 60 cm below topsoil.  This level is the same as that directly to the north below the heavy tile fall (T-19 H-I/42-43).  The area excavated lies directly east of the area excavated yesterday (see ABI, p. 185-188) with a N-S dike between.  The soil was similar to the previously excavated area - full of stones, small fragments of terracotta (pan tiles, cover tiles, pithoi and wall plaster), many pottery sherds (one cassetta), one strawberry carton of bucchero sherds, bones, and several finds.

The workmen began clearing the next area to the east (T-19 grids G/44-45), producing a large amount of pottery (one cassetta), small fragments of tiles (2 cassette), and bones.  The soil here is dark brown and stony.
