The topsoil cut begun yesterday in meter I/42 was completed and extended northwest into meters G-H/42.  The topsoil was grey-brown in color with many roots and small rocks.  One quarter of a cassetta of worn tile and one half box of mixed pottery, including several burned pieces, were discovered in the topsoil.

A second cut was then begun in meters I/42-43 to a depth of ca. 20-25 cm.  The soil in the cut remained grey-brown in color with many roots and small rocks.  Numerous small pieces of carbonized wood were encountered in the soil as well as a few worn pieces of bronze.  One half of a cassetta of worn tile and

one third of a box of worn pottery of mixed fabrics were recovered.  Many pieces of tile and pottery were blackened from burning.


Since most of the trench has now dried from the rain of the previous week, portions of the northern and southern trench baulks were cleaned with mestaline for clearer definition.  The areas cleaned included meters I/42-44 along the southern baulk of the trench and meters G/42-44 along the northern trench baulk.  A few small pieces of worn terracotta and one quarter of a box of worn pottery were discovered during cleaning.
