Two 10 cm. cuts were taken in the meters M-N/14, extendin the depth of the trench in these meters to ca. 45-50 cm. from the surface. At a depth of ca. 30 cm the soil in the cut turned to galestra. No material was recovered from the galestra soil. A cut was also begun in meter M/15, extending the depth of this meter to ca. 40-45 cm. The soil in the cut was dark to medium brown in color and contained many small roots and rocks. The complete excavation of the this meter was prevented by the presence of a large stump located along its northern edge. Approximately one quarter of a casetta of small pieces of worn tile, including a few vitrified and heavily burned fragments, and on half of a

box of impasto and coarseware sherds were discovered. In addition, fourn pieces of slag were also found. Teh area to the north of the pit, including the northern half of H-I/13 and all of meters H-I/14, was further swept and cleaned. Cleaning revealed a number of small patches of both black and red burn soil appearing in meters H-I/14-15 at a depth of ca. 90-95 cm. In addition , a small scatter of ceramic material, consisting primarily of coarseware fragments, was uncovered both in and around these patches of black and red soil. These fragments will be left in situ until they can be recorded on a plan.


The trench was extended north into meters E-H/22-25. Two 10 cm. topsoil cuts were completed in both meters E-F/22-23 and meters H/22-23. The soil in these meters was dark brown in color and contained many rocks and small roots. Only a few small coarseware sherds were discovered. In addition , a large flat stone was uncovered in meters H/22-23. The are around the stone was cleared with hammer and mestalina. As yet it is not posssible to determine the depth or possible significance of the stone. A second plan map to be designated CA-22 Plan II was begun. This plan will infclude meters G-I/12. Following its completion, the plan will be placed in this book.

Work on this second plan was discontinued due to the arrival of the architect.
