Final Trench Summary

The goals laid out for T-30 for the 2003 season were met with the most important or interesting goal being number 4 , the discovery of a flat stone in the trench that would correspond to the two flat stones located in T-22 and T-26.  The other goals were not quite as fruitful, but the finds were definitely interesting.

As far as the Archaic phase of the trench goes, there were numerous amounts of cooking vessels, most of the metal in the trench and a small, but significant amount of bone.  There was not enough material recovered to make a conjecture to what was happeneing here, but the cooking vessels might lead one to believe that this was an area for food preparation or something of that sort.

In T-30, we uncovered a portion of a large, flat stone and are confident that it and the ones located in T-22 and T-26 are column bases.  This would lead us to believe that there is another Orientalizing peristyle structure of indeterminable size and orientation  adjacent to the workshop.  Further excavation in this area is required in order to understand the architecture of the structure and its function.

There is a possibility that this structure might have been used to fire tiles and pottery due to the amount of

material that was recovered from the Orientalizing layer and the burn layer, but there has been no discovery of a kiln in the area to determine if this conclusion is acurate or not.

Further excavation of this area is needed to determine the size and orientation of the new building and what its use might have been.
