A. M.

Began and finished new cut in west 1/2 of H-I/41 from 70-90 cm.  Soil was medium brown/grey, and yielded 1 3/4 latte of pottery (mostly impasto) and 1 full cassetta of tile.  Discovered in this cut were a large bucchero handle (find #3), a possible statue fragement (find #4), and a fragment of winged acroterion (find #5).  Also recovered most of a pan tile.  Took all of H-I/41 (including eastern portion of H-I/40) down to 100cm through a darker brown soil.  Found 1/2 cassetta of tile, and 1/2 latte of potery and some bone, and a small fragment of cruicible (find #7).

Took another full cut down to appoximately 120cm, going through dark brown soil and a burn layer which produced a combined total of 1 1/2 cassetta of tile and plaster as well as 3 1/2 latte boxes of pottery and bone.  Recovered a large piece of vitrified tile (find #9); a piece of stamped impasto (find #10); another fragment of crucible (find #11); a bronze tack (find #12); 4 pieces of ridge pole tile, 1 with a finger-impressed ridge (find #14); part of a cut-out acroterion (find #15); and the shaft of a small bronze nail (find #17).

Began and finished a 4th cut in H-I/41 down to approx. 150cm, which consisted of galestra and was totally devoid of material.

Finished cut in H/52 down to an approximate depth of 130 cm.  At this point a large, almost flat, rock prevented further work. *  The rock is roughly square and its two exposed sides measure roughly 45cm and 70cm, it does extend into the east baulk however.  This cut from beneath the stump in H/52, produced 1/2 cassetta of tile fragments and 1 full latte of pottery and bone fragments, and a few small flecks of bronze.  Finds from this cut include a fragment of painted creamware (#1), an iron shaft (#2), a fragment of ridged impasto rim (#6), a bent bronze pin shaft (#8), a fragment of painted pottery (#13), and a thin sheet of bronze with a nail hole (#16).

Began a top soil cut in the east baulk of the trench in the south half of H/53 and all of I/53.  4 fragments of pottery and 12-15 fragments of tile, all extremely worn, were removed.

* Beneath this stone the soil appears to have many inclusions of plaster and terracotta.
