Continued work with mestilini in N6,W1 & N5,W1 and N6,W2, N5,W2. At a depth of roughly 60 cm b.s., soil changes from medium brown soil to yellowish brown sterile soil. A heavy layer of carbon rests directly upon this transition in some areas of N6,W1. A concentration of small stones is also present at this transition. Some burned bone also occurs, but pottery is highly infrequent.

As the cut was extended and deepened to 70 cm b.s., soil changed from medium brown soil with carbon inclusions to the yellowish brown soil devoid of material. The entire area of the trench floor in N506, W1-2 now exhibits this sterile soil.*

Baulks were then trimmed and straightened from section drawing.

*note that presence of carbon was heaviest at the point of transition from medium brown soil to yellowish brown sterile soil.





With the occurance of galestra throughout N5,E1 N6,E1 N5,W1 N5,W2 and N6-W2, it was decided to close CA-36 to concentrate this years' efforts in other areas.

Final photographs were taken of the trench and CA-36 was backfilled. Plastic was placed on the floor of the six meters listed above prior to backfilling.
