July 14, 1972

Work continued in Trench 19 in the north extension, grids J-M/31-32.  They finished clearing through the medium dark brown layer and began clearing the reddish brown tile layer.  The concentration of tiles here is not extremely heavy.  However, this stratum contains many pieces of carbon.

In grids K-M/31, a stone foundation running N-S and approx. 40 cm wide was uncovered.  To the east of this foundation, there appears to be a dump of smaller chipped stones.  These stones and the foundation are on the same level as the reddish brown tile stratum. Amongst the stones to the east of the wall, there is a heavy carbon concentration mixed with the reddish soil.  The foundations running E-W were also cleared, showing their norther edge. See plan on p. 108.
