July 8, 1994


The cut to a depth of 25-30 cm, initiated yesterday, was completed.  Floor of the trench is almost completely a grayish soil with small stones.  The dark brown soil, characteristic of the earlier cut, is still visible in some areas of the trench.  A small, flairing base was found in K/73 and a pan tile with an unusually wide flange was removed.

Roughly 1 1/2 cassetti of tile and a full latte box of pottery were recovered within this cut.

A new cut was initiated over the whole area of the trench, bringing the floor down to a depth of 35-40 cm.  Soil is now grayish with numerous small stones.  Occasionally, stones, roughly fist-sized, are removed.  The stones are not numerous enough to consider this a stone capping or layering.

Roughly 1/2 a cassetti of heavily worn tile fragments and sporadic fragments of pottery have been removed from this soil.  Material recovery is significantly lighter than in earlier cuts.


A new cut was completed over all meters of the trench area, bringing the trench floor down to an average depth of 40-45 cm.  Soil remains grayish with numerous small stones.  As yet, there is no evidence of a stone layering in this area of T-26.

Roughly 1/2 a cassetti of tile fragments were found along with about 1/3 a latte box of pottery fragments.  A small fragment of a crucible was also found.
