Meters in K-L-M/63-64 were mestied in the process of reaching floor level. The charactristic burn soil in L/64 zielded 3 pieces of slag and some small pieces of bronze. The large rocks in this meter removed, underneath was a thin layer of dirt, then large chunks of plaster, small bits of pottery and finally a brown soil that was clean exceot for some carbon inclusions. Patches of the burn layers were evident in K-L/63-64 & most oftern tile or pithos fragments were found underneath. Finds from these meters include: the bottom & stem of & orangeware cup, and a strange relatively flat piece of terracotta with 2 finisshed edges. L/63 produced a good gsized area of plaster layer after defining its boundaries, it was mestied though & tile ets became evident. 1 latte pottery & 1/4 cassette frags.

The carbon deposits in K/69 were lifted. Only 1 of the 2 were recovered almost whole and the other though it was

PVA\'d, disintegrated. Mesti work in cleaning this area zielded approx 1/2 an impasto cup and a possible piece of ridge pole. It was determind that the large rocks in this area were \'free floating\' & they wre lifter. Mesti work began in M/69-70 where 1/2 a latte pottery & several sizeable animal bones wre found. Soil remains unchanged.


Afternoon cut very short by rain. Brief mesti work done in K-L-M/63-64. Find included an impasto lid frag & orangeware frag.
