August 4, 1994

The area of K-L/72 was excavated to a depth of 175 cm.  The area of heavy carbon burn rests on top of a medium brown soil with lime flecks which is sterile.  However, as we move northward into the K/72 meter, the carbon burn soil drops radically.

Thus, in most of L/72, the medium brown soil with lime begins at about 120 cm, but as the depth of the carbon soil drops in K/72, we are still unable to determine the point of transition to the sterile soil, even at a depth of 175 cm.

This feature will be drawn by the architect tomorrow.

Pottery and tile are densely impacted within this carbon brown soil.  8 latte boxes of pottery were found in K/72 alone, while 1 full cassetta of tile fragments were removed from the same area.
