T-23 tile: I, pottery negligible

Brief summary:  Meter C/11 taken to 60 cm, ivory found in large quantity.  Meters A/11-12 taken to ~60 cm.  Tile layer in T-26 cleaned.

Work began with pick, shovel, and wheelbarrow in meter C/11.  A cut to 60 cm was taken.  Ivory found and worked changed to mestiline and sieves, very carefully checking the soil.  More ivory and bronze nails found.  Continued picking revealed a tile layer, so work changed to cleaning down the tile; more ivory found this way.  Bronze slag and glass slag found.  Carbon in abundance, though in small fragments.  Soil is light with orange and black.

Meters A/11-12 taken to 60 cm and the soil carefully checked.  Soil gray-brown, very little burn layer like the layer at 60 cm in C/11-12.

Tile and rock in T-26 E/77-79 continued to be cleaned.
