T6E (2)

No work was done in this area today becaue the was too wet.


The dike between T6D and T6B-C which was left as a wheelbarrow path (above, p. 41 ) was now taken out.  Work started from the S end.  In the topsoil there were a few tile fragments (less than 10)


The second layer was taken off.  Tiles were few.  2 boxes were dumped in the morning.

The process of lifting one drain pipe


In the afternoon work continued on the wheel barrow path, yielding few tiles


Work on the new cut proceeded uninterrupted during the afternoon.  Two boxes of tiles were dumped.  The drain on the west edge of the trench was swept for a final series of photographs prior to its removal from the earth.  Dr. Gantz (flown in from Murlo by special request) acted as guest director of the actual excavation of the drain pipe.  He was ably assisted in the delicate operation by Miss Cool, Student Archaeologist.  Starting at the south wall, the first convex section was removed.  Underneath this was found a vase handle--discovered by the photographer, who was acting as chief consultant throughout the afternoon.

Because of its broken condition, section 1 was immediately for restoration purposes.  Section 2 proved, on the other hand, to be quite well preserved in large pieces.  This second joint was thus removed with the greatest of care by the aforementioned Team of Experts.  Each join was marked with a brand new red magic marker purchased especially or this purpose.
