A.M.

The trench was extended north into meters D-E/68-70 where a topsoil cut was taken to a depth of ca. 10-15cm.  The soil was dark brown in color and contained a light concentration of disintegrated plaster.  One quarter cassetta of mixed tile and plaster (50% tile, 50% plaster) and one half box of coarse pottery and some bone were found in the cut.  A second cut was then begun to a depth of ca. 20-5cm.  The soil remained dark brown in color and contained increasingly heavy concentrations of disintegrated plaster.  One half cassetta of mixed tile and plaster (60% tile, 40% plaster) and one quarter box of mixed pottery, including some fine bucchero, were found in the second cut.

P.M.

A second cut was completed in D-E/68-70 to a depth of ca. 20-25cm.  The soil was dark brown in color and contained a heavy concentration of yellow, disintegrated plaster.  A few pieces of worn tile and one half box of pottery and bone were discovered in the cut.  A third cut was then taken to a deoth of ca. 35cm.  The soil remained dark brown in color with heavy concentrations of disintegrated plaster.  A large amount of pottery, including pieces of bucchero, buccheroid adn grey ware (1 1/2 boxes), and some bone (1/2 box) were found in the cut.  A very small amount of worn tile and plaster were also discovered.

Two large stumps in the bulk between meters H and I 68-70

were also removed.  The soil around the stumps was dark brown in color and contained many small rocks.  One quarter cassetta of worn tile was discovered among the roots of the stumps.
