Tuesday June 26


We continued to clear through the soil of Locus 1. In the south east corner of the trench (near the stump) and to the south of the roped-off rock feature some larger stones made themselves apparent.

Six bowls of terracotta were removed in the morning. We utilized the morning to take out the rest of the stumps that were in the trench, trim baulks and continued to clear through the locus. Terracotta continues to be recovered from the "dump" in the northeast corner.


Continues to trim the Northern and Eastern Baulks; cleared down the soil between T-45 and T-46 as well as that between our trench and T-30-B. One piece of butchered bone was recovered and made a find (Find 1). A piece of ridgepole tile and a large hunk of plaster were also recovered from the dump; the later was made a find. Worked on removing the dump tile as well as clearning down through the soil of the trench (not very clumpy soil; again probably from the dump). On one pickpass the soil begain to appear much more mottled and yielded many bones and fragments of ceramic. Upon closer inspection it appears that we may have come down upon a surface - there are various ceramic and terracotta pieces resting in a much more hard packed soil. WE bagain to clear back to this soil; begining in the NE corner and clearing back from there. Another stone became apparent, most likely in line with the rock packing feature of the NW corner (roped off area). Hopegully we have found the end of the dump material and the begining (potentially) of the archic destruction or perhaps archaic habitational level of the site. Continues to trowel to this new locus for the remainder of the day.
