July 15, 1988


The cut in E-F/68-70 was taken to a depth of ca. 80-95cm following the downward slope of the hill.  The soil remained dark brown in color and contained many small rocks.  In meter E/69 there was a small concentration of pottery which included pieces of orange wear, molded impasto and bucchero.  One half a cassetta of worn tile and one box of mized pottery were discovered in the cut.

The trench was extended northward into meters B/68-70 where a topsoil cut was made to a depth of 10cm.  The soil was dark brown in color and contained a large amount of roots and small rocks.  A small tree in the southwestern portion of B/68 and a large stump spreading across B/69-70 made excavation in these meters difficult.  No tile ot pottery

was discovered int he first cut.  A second cut was then made in meters B/68-70 to a depth of ca. 20cm.  The soil in this cut was light brown in color and contained many small rocks.  One half a cassetta of worn tile was removed from the second cut.  No pottery was discovered.


The cut in G-H/68-70 was extended to a depth of ca. 35-40cm.  The soil was dark brown in color and contained a heavy concentration of both large and small rocks.  These rocks appear to be randomly placed and form part of a fill layer.  Followinf careful cleaning of the trench floor several of the larger rocks were removed.  One half a cassetta of worn tile and a few pieces of coarse pottery were found in the cut.

The cut in B/68-70 was brought down to a depth of ca. 40cm.  The soil was light brown in color and some small pockets of disintegrated plaster.  One quarter cassetta of worn tile was discovered in the cut.  No pottery was found.
