The 30 cm cut was continued; to the north becoming deeper.  Most of this cut is actually at a depth of 30-40 cm.  The depht is being measured as previously explained ( pg 19 ).  This extension, P-T 74-76 is on an area of land slightly higher than the area covered by P-T, 77-79.  Thus, though the cut is deeper than the 1st cut in P-T, 77-79, the level is close to the same level uncovered in the 1st cut in P-T, 77-79.

The small stones centered in S-74, 75 were determined to be random and removed.  The large pan tile in S, T-75 was not removed but left in place.  The soil at this cut continues to remain dark and rooty, but becomes lighter and reddish towards the bottom of the cut, particularly in the northern meters R-Q, 74-76.

Ivory was found at the floors of the cut and work slowed and the soil was carefully checked in the wheel barrows.  Smaller amounts of soil were picked.

The soil appears to be more red throughout the cut in meters P, Q-77-76.  Though there is a lot of tile in t6his cut it does not appear to be layered as a tile fall.

Of interest is the fact that a great deal of glassy slag is being found, probably the result of vitrified pan and cover tiles.  A great deal of heat would be required to vitrify the tiles.  The area may have been the site of an extremely hot fire.  This may be the source of heat that \xb0fired\xb0 the clay like floor in P-T, 77-79, thus preserving it.

Large chunks of slag were saved and taken to the magazino but not recorded as finds several bronze fragments were also found today.  The 1st cut, this 40 cm cut, was extended over the whole T26 extension except for the area covered by the stumps in P-74 and T-76.  Pithos fragments were found and a fragment of pithos base was taken down to the magazino.

The pan tile with its width preserved in meter P-77 at 60 cm was removed.  During removal portions were consolidated with PVA.  Only a small amount of the tile was left in the ground due to lack of time to excavate the entire tile.

The 40 cm cut was extended through a small section of P-76, 75 which was left unexcavated this morning.  A student was assigned to remove the pan tile in S, T-75.  The pan tile removed this morning from P-77 was numbered and prepared for transport to the magazino.

The pan tile in S, T-75 did not prove to contain a complete length or width and it was thus removed.

More glassey slag was found.
