The 30 cm cut was continued to the north to bring the entire trench level to 30 cm.  The pot found on the western edge of meter S-77 on June 10 was left in place and the cut was continued around this area.  The cut was taken to 40 cm in meter R-77 but then sloped back up to 30 cm moving north.

The soil continued to contain tile, bone, and classy slag, exhibited a reddish tint towards the floor of the cut, and contained plaster.  Large stones at the floor level were left in place along meters Q, R, S-78.

Only a portion of meter P-77 was left unexcavated.

A student was assigned to excavate the orangeware pot in meter S-77.  The piece was removed in several fragments but no profile was obtained.

Meter P-77 was taken completely to 30 cm thus completing the 30 cm cut over the entire trench.

A new cut was begun in meter T-79 taking the floor to a depth of 40 cm.  At this depht a flat mortar surface was uncovered.  Work continued to uncover this mortar "floor" which aapparantly extends throughout the whole meter.

The "floor" is suspected to be mortar because a piece of the "floor" was removed when it was first discovered:  the piece contained stones and other filler material set in a cement type base.  The surface being exposed is flat but slopes from a higher point at the southern end of the meter to a lower point at the northern end of the meter.

The soil above this mortar "floor" was very light, containing a great deal of white chalky material.  A soil sample was saved and carried down to the magazino.
