Continued excavating locus 11 moving east, meters N12-14 W9-8 in CA42N.  The soil is olive brown (2.5 Y 4/3) with numerous carbon inclusions(some up to 1 cm in size).  Practically no tile was found today except for few small pieces which were worn and might have possibly been coarseware fragments.  However a significant number of plaster pieces (25), 1-3 cm in size were found.  Several large pieces of pottery of various shapes were found, possibly parts of full vessels (finds 3,5,7,9,10).  Also 2 spindle whorls (one miniature and fragmentary) were recovered very close to each other, as well as 2 rocchetti and 2 pieces of worked chest (debitage).  One full latte box of bone and pottery was recovered.
