Daily Log

July 13, 1994


The cut across L-M/71-76 to an average depth of 50 cm was completed.  Soil remains medium brown but plaster inclusions are becoming more frequent.

Roughly 1 full cassetti of tile was removed from this cut, most of it fragmentary and worn.  1/2 a latte box of pottery was also found.

Soil in meters L76-75 is noticeably different, being a nearly sterile, shaley soil with very infrequent tile fragments.  This soil area is rather similar to the light gray soil of the previous stratum.

Five items were made finds in this cut.  A large terracotta fragment, a piece of plaster with a finished edge and reed hole, a small decorated orangeware lid fragment, a fragment of bronze with a possible finished edge, and an orangeware rim.



A new cut was begun in L-M/76-75 and extended into L-M/75-73 to a depth of roughly 85-90 cm.  Tile is being recovered in very high concentrations and a nearly complete cover tile was found in M/76 but has not yet beend efined or removed.  A fragment of heavily vitrified tile was found in meter M/73.


The cut to 85-90 cm across L-M/71-76 was completed.  The floor level of this area is almost entirely a medium brown soil with heavy plaster and carbon inclusions.  The transition from the previous stratum of medium brown soil is not distinct; however the amount of disintegrated plaster suggests a new stratum.

1 full cassetti of tile fragments were removed, along with 1 1/2 latte boxes of pottery.  Another fragment of a decorated orangeware lid was found which joins to find #3 from this morning.

A new cut to an average depth of 100 cm was begun in meters M/71-72 and only partially completed.  Soil is medium brown and extremely heavy with plaster and carbon.  Tile is heavy as is pottery.  Work was slowed considerably by the presence of worked bone in both meters.
