pottery - 4 frags

tile - 1/10 cassetta

K-L/69 10 cm cut in humus layer. Soil is dark-brown with many roots and stones- Pottery is impasto, worn. Tile is small pieces and worn.

pottery- 1/8 latte

tile - 1/7 cassetta

K-L/67 cut to ~50 cm bd, 20-25 cms bs. This levels it with K-L/66. Cut through humus and terminates in medium brown soil with slighly grey cast. Tile is worn and small. Pottery mixed. One possbile lithis fragment found in K/67 at 16 cm depth below surface.

Notes: Tile frgaments are occassionally burnt -usually on one side -mostly the side facing up -modern fires?


L-M/66-67 A line of smallish rocks (fist sized) has  beend noticed in the baulk of L-M/64-71 and also the north of 71. This line of rock is approx. 30-40 cms below surface layer. It sits in soil (in 66-67) at ~60-70 cm bd or approx 30-40 cm bs. We are going to make a small test of this area due to the provocative extent of the rock layer and its distinct depths. Above the rocks is humus, then subsoil of a medium to medium-dark soil with. There is some evidence, given our limited test of the area that pottery and small tile fragments lie directly upon these rocks.

Proceeding to take  L/66-67 down to the 60 cm bd (30-40 cm below surface)

tile - 1/3 cassetta

pottery - 20 frags

K-M/69, taking this down to ~60 cm bd, terminating in medium brwon soil. As with K-M/70

we are encountering numerous root and small rocks. Tile mostly worn and small. Pottery mixed. No bucchero.

pottery - 1/2 latte

M/66-67 in taking this area down to c. 60 cm bd and rounghly on top of rock pack, have encountered some associated fragments of impasto small jar laying directly on rocks.
