Morning

We work in T25 finishing yesterday's cut across the wall in E-zeta 12; in R22 C-D-E 3-4 where we complete the rock-cut south of the rocks; and in AG-11, the fossa, completing cut 3 in 12-9 and beginning cut 4 in E-F 15-14.

In T25 cut 1 we find 5 slingstones grouped next to the wall (# 1) and less than half carton pottery and a little bone.  In R22 we observe a stratigraphic pattern similar to yesterday's.  Our 1-2cm carbon layer continues almost to the west balk where it is replaced in (3C) by a yellow clay, which is thinner.  Over this the plaster burn thins to a mere burn; under this a yellow green clay is found with much pottery and some carbon.  # 11 is from the border of the yellow line and green.  A white material coats the underside of the carbon line in a spot ca. 0.5m squared in 3-4 C.  Some plaster, tile, bone occur.  In the fossa, pottery is plentiful, bone extremely frequent, especially in 10 and 9 - some of these have been cut (#'s 6 and 18, 21).  Bronze objects (#'s 4, 5) and rochetti (#'s   ) as well as whorls (#  )are represented in unusual concentration too.  Pottery is normally impasto, some perhaps handmade (# 10) but includes ca. one-third a cassetta of heavy coarseware and a little bucchero (E-G # 7).

Fossa cut 4 yields many large rocks in and on a yellow soil, but scattered and smaller generally.  We note in R22 burned sherds and bone in the thin carbon-resting.
