June 27, 1970


The section of T10 which had not been excavated in 1969 was measured and work started here.  See plan, p. 228 .  Topsoil

had been taken off partly the previous season.  It showed the same mixture of humus and small stones noticed in T8.  This section lies in line with E end wall of the whole complex (Santuario) and it remains to be seen if there are any parts of the wall preserved.

The section measures ca 8m. see plan p. 228 .  N-S and 5.20 - 5.70-.80 EW.  Large treestumps and a huge rock from the Western end.  Where topsoil had been taken off the pattern of this section became clear - apart from the stumps and the rock there is a "carpet" of rugged bedrock broken up by uneven depressions filled with earth

Since the thin topsoil and the second layer only produced ca 20 small tile fragments and bedrock covered ca 75% of this section, it became clear that no walls or finds could be expected here.  The section wsa thus only taken dow to a level of max. 0.15 m depth.  Whereas the rest of T10 with the walls had been taken down to 25 cm. during last year's excavation

Work was slow since it was very hot

The only "find" from this section was a fragment of a cooking stand with part of a circular hole from grid K13.
