Monday June 27, 1994


Despite rain overnight the trenches were dry enough to work.

After examining the notes from T-6A and T-6B and finding very little description about soil layers, it seemed best to continue just a bit further in order to establish the stratigraphy of at least one prt of the trench. Thus H-I/23-24 was excavated another 25cm.

It may be that T-6B lies immediately to the west of the area currently under excavation. Thus it seems best to start excavating H-I/20 next.

After excavating a few more centimeters of H/I 23-24 the large stones running along the northest corner of the trench became pedestalled. Because they

were all lying at odd angels, had soil between them, and were not dressed, they were removed. This layer seems, although it may not necessarily be, and example of the stone capping that appears elsewhere on the site.

At 78 cm (from the datum point at 22-24/H on the N baulk) the soil began to change in consistency from the dry crumbly, brown soil which slightly more tile and carbon. A new pottery box was begun at this point.

For the stretch between 50cm –78 cm a handful of pottery was recovered and 1/4 of a liter latte box of tile..

H-I/23-24 was excavated below the level of 78cm but a complete cut was incomplete when work stopped for the day.  Recovered

were a handful of pottery and a handful of tile.
