The area around the concentration of small stones uncovered yesterday afternoon in meterJ714 and the northern half of J/13 was cleared with mestalina and brush. Clearing revealed the concentration to consist of both small and medium sized stones. Further cleaning to the east also revealed the extension of the stones into meter K/14. Thsu far the stones seem to be randomly placed. However, further clearing of the area will be necessary to determine the extent and possible significance of the stone concentration. The soil around the stones was dark brown in
color and contained a high concentration of carbon and small pieces of vitrified tile, especially in the northern half of meter J/14. One box of impasto and coarseware, including mostly burned pieces, one quarter of a box of burned bone, and one box of small pieces of vitrified tile were discovered in the dark brown soil.
The rock concentration in meters J-K/14 was cleaned down with mestalina and brush for greater definition. Cleaning revealed the concentration to extend fully into meter K/14 and at least partially into the northern quarter of meters J-K/13. Cleaning around the north edge of the rocks also revealed their connection with the concentration of rocks previously uncovered in meter J/15. Sweeping along the eastern and northern sides of the concentration revealed the rocks to be bounded on these sides by galestra. Additional clearing will be necessary to determine the exact position of its southern and western
boundaries. The maximum preserved hieght of the concentration is ca. 100 cm. and the maximum excavated depth ca. 110 cm. the soil around the rocks was dark brown in color with high concentration of carbon and small pieces of vitrified tile. At the end of the afternoon the area was swept down and photographed. One half of a box of impasto and coarseware, including many burned pieces, one quarter of a box of burned bone and half of a box of small pieces of vitrified tile were discovered among the rocks.
