Daily Log

July 9, 1975

Work continued in grid K-L/26-27 (T18), excavating the yellow stratum below the level of the foundation walls.  c. 30 cm below the top of the foundations, a rocky stratum, possibly bedrock, was reached.  These rocks are at the same depth and probably correspond to the "bedrock" in room J-P/28-30 (T18).

The "redware" concentration continued.  Several features of this pottery concentration are noteworthy:

  1. There are no entire shapes or adjoining pieces of one pot.  Several different rims or feet will come up together but never pieces of the same pot.  Also blackware (bucchero/buccheroid, etc.) is mixed with the redware.
  2. The pottery is found over a great depth, c. 30 cm of yellow earth.  The heaviest concentration is near the foundation walls.  SEveral pieces were touching the stones of the foundation walls.
