Work continued bringing meters M/71-76 down to a uniform depth of cir. 100 cm.  The soil type present along the floor of these meters varies from residual pockets of orangy brown soil with plaster inclusions to a dark, nearly black soil with heavy carbon inclusions which lies below the previously mentioned stratum.

A total of 1 1/3 cassetti of tile and plaster was recovered from M/71-76 between a depth of 95-100 cm along with about 1 1/2 latte boxes of pottery.  There is a significant increase in the volume of both pottery and bone present in the black, carbon soil.  Occasional flecks of bronze are present in the black soil, although bronze flecks are more common in the medium brown orangy soil.



Worked continues with cleaning and leveling the floor of meters M/71-76, producing a consistent layer of dark carbon soil.  A fragment of painted pottery and a fragment of stamped orangeware were found on the floor of these meters.
