A.M.

The cut begun yesterday in meters A-B/68-70 was completed to a depth of ca. 85cm.  The soil in the cut was yellow-grey in color, very loose in substance and contained dense chunks of white, powdery, clay-like material.  No material was discovered in the yellow-grey soil.  The large stump in B/69-70 was further cleared down.  The soil in teh stump was dark brown in color.  A few small, worn pieces of tile were removed from the roots of the stump.

A cut was completed in G-H/68-70 to a depth of ca. 65-70cm.  The soil was dark brown in color and contained many small rocks.  Several larger rocks were removed from the base of the cut in meters G/68-70.  All of these rocks were from the same stratum as the rock pack in E-F/68-70.  One

quarter of tile and a few pieces of coarse pottery were found in the cut.

P.M.

The cut in A-B/68-70 wa extended to a depth of ca. 90-95cm.  The soil was yellow-grey in color, very loose in substance and contained dense chunks of white, powdery, clay-like material.  A sample of these white chunks was taken down to the magazzino.  Beginning at a depth of ca. 90cm, small concentrations of orange, powdery soil also began to appear.  No material was found in the yellow-grey soil.  The stump in B/69-70 continued to be shived down.  The soil beneath the stump was dark brown in color.  A few small, worn pieces of tile were found among the roots of the stump.

A cut was begun in G-H/68-70 to a depth of ca. 80-85cm.  The soil was dark brown in color and contained many small rocks.  Several large rocks were uncovered at the base of the cut, particularly

in meters G/68-9.  These large rocks were left in place awaiting further clearing to determine their placement and position.  One quarter cassetta of tile and a few sherds of coarse pottery were found in the cut.
