Daily Log

July 22, 1980

Morning

We continue to dig in T25, continuing cut 4 southward to beta and in R22 widening our trench a half meter into 4 in the south and to the west edge of C.  By beta the soil is dark burn.  This dark yields massive quantities of pottery most of it from impasto jars, but fragments of cups and stemmed bowls are also relatively frequent, along with heavy coarseare (several fragments must belong to pithos rims) and fine wares, especially buchero but also buffware, some painted ( #'s 1 and 10).  Tile is common and a few fragments are decorative or unusual (#'s 4, 5, and 13).  Paster too is frequent and often large.  A few bronze bits occur, one (# 3) unmistakeably a fragment.  Bone is frequent as well.  In R22, too, we find much pottery, a large proportion of it fine but much of it heavy and coarse as well.  Seeds of various sorts occur, predictably, in the south-east (#'s 2, 6, 7 and 8).

Afternoon

We complete the widening of our trench in R22 and clean the floor down to make a level surface in D-C 3-4.  The former especially produced much pottery and a few more seeds.
