Tesoro 5E

The entire trench was cleared down to what appeared to be bedrock.  Tiles definitely were under the north wall, but they were also clearly part of a fill to support that wall, rather than belonging to dump or level.  The building, then, would seem to be later than the tiles and possibly contemporary with the agger.  A few last pieces of horse race frieze ( 19680910 , 19680960 ) and one piece of procession frieze ( 19680965 ) were found in P3, just inside the south wall.  The layer of stones south of the wall was left on the chance that it might cover another dump area extending south towards Tesoro 2.

I, Test Trench 7

Another test trench, identical to 6 and east of it, was begun.  It was laid out to cut through the center of the strip of the projected post holes, in the hope that the west trench wall would show the post holes themselves in profile.

6A

A new complex was set up in the southwest corner of the plateau Tesoro and designated as Complex 6.  The first trench 6A was laid out NS parallel to the agger and about 11 meters east of it.  It measured 15.5 x 2.0 m.  Topsoil was removed and one worn fragment of cornice found.  The first course produced about half a box of tiles.
