The small section of meters U-V/77, which was not taken to floor level, was taken to floor level.  Also meters U-W/74-76 were mapped out and digging began in these meters.  U-W/76 were taken directly to floor level.  Directly under the topsoil in U-V/76, the soil was light gray directly above the floor.  The appeared to extend to directly under the topsoil in W/76.  Meters U-W/75-74 were taken to ~25 cm (not to floor level) in the first cut of these meters.  This cut consisted mainly of topsoil, with tile mixed in.

The second cut to the floor, to ~30 cm in W/75-74, showed a great deal of carbonized wood at ~30 cm.  It is not known if this is indeed the floor level or if the floor even extends into these meters.  The floor, however, is present at ~40-45 cm in meters U-V/75-76.  Note that a portion of the carbonized wood in W/75 was saved today as Find #12.  It is estimated that the carbonized wood



extended over an area ~20-30 cm x 5-10 cm.

In addition, there appeared to be a burn (black soil, carbon) layer throughout the meter at this depth.  Large stones were encountered at ~25 cm along the western wall of this extension.  These were at first removed, but the stones beneath the initial ones were left in place.

Note that the 25 cm cut was extended over the whole extension and the second cut, to the floor, was completed through meters U-W/76-75 and into U-W/74.  The soil from 25 cm to the floor at ~45 cm in U/76-75 was light gray.
