Work continued removing the backfill from T-6b from a begining depth of approximatly 125cm.  The soil was dense and clayey and still had small particles of carbon and occasional tile, although extremely small pieces of it.  As this soil was excavated it became dryer and flakier and slightly more like galestra.  There was no carbon or tile at this point (132 cm)  We ceased to excavate this area so that we could continue in other areas of the trench but the backfill from trench T-6b is not yet completely removed.

Potter= a few sherds

tile= a handful of very small fragments

Work then began on H-I/20-22 at a depth of 85 cm.  After excavating the T-6b backfill, and nothing resembing a burn layer can

be seen in the west section (in the east section there is a thin reddish layer with concentrations of carbon clearly visible).  Also when the soil of H-I/ 20-21 is picked, it tends to have more pottery and tile and larger and more frequent carbon inclusions thatn H-I/22.  It seems impossible that this layer couls slope so drastically over one meter from 85cm in the west to level deeper than 132cm in the east (one way of accounting for its absense in the east baulk of H-I/23-24.  It is also possible that this layer of darker soil with more material and carbon does not extend all the way across this section of the tranh.  It will continue to be excavated as one layer for the moment.

tile= 1/2 cassetta- plus occasional pieces of plaster

pottery=1/2 latte box
