Friday June 24, 1994


Work continued with pick and shovel to remove the backfill of T-6.

The NE corner of this cut has consitently produced more and larger stones than the other areas of the cut. After we pedestalled them, it became clear that they were floaters and we removed them.

At a depth of approximatly 0.50 cm from the surface of the north baulk at the 23/24 meter peg we trimmed the baulks and examined the stratigraphy. The south baulk revealed what looked like stratified soil, while the east and west baulks within the cut still showed clayey fill. Perhaps our original thoughts about the location of T-6B were incorrect.

We decided to continue the cut anyway, mostly because of the consisten paucity of tile and pottery. However, the soil began to change in consistancy once we began picking again. Rather than being fairly sticky clay, it was drier, broke into much smaller clumps when picked, and crumbled more easily when it was sorted.

No finds.
