Daily Log

August 1, 1994


Work continues in meters N7,E1 and N7,W1 with mestilini. Soil is consistently medium brownish with carbon and pottery.

In the northern portion of N7,W1, we have uncovered a large flat stone which may be bedrock. Currently, we are defining the perimeter of the stone.

Material is now being segregated between the area above this flat stone and that below it. It should be noted that the brown soil with carbon inclusion desends below the face of the flat stone.

Prior to the uncovering of the stone an oblong piece of terracotta, square in section, with X's on either end was found in N7,W1 at a depth of 34 cm and thus above the flat rock. The upper face of the rock is at a depth of cir 42 cm.

As work progresses up to the large stone, it is now evident that the stone is resting on yellowish sterile soil.
