Daily Log

June 19, 1978


The hole in E-F/28-30 was widened to the end of the G grid.  At this point the loose rock fill ended and a burn section running the length of grids 28-30 was excavated.  This burn area was approx. 70 cm high and 6-8 inches deep.  Numerous Greek pottery sherds were contained here.

The burn ended against large rocks similar to the bedrock in the D grids.  The soil between the rocks is dark red, but contains no pottery or carbon.

Work continued in the fossa in one attempt to find its bottom.






Work this afternoon ended with a final excavation of grids F-G/28-30 after encountering bedrock at the bottom of the trench.
