June 24, 1970


The trench was taken down to a max depth of 40cm.  The stones and the bedrock were cleaned.  The features are: column-base "A", a similar base at a distance (center to center) of a little less than 3m to the N,; a formation of bedrock at the N end with a spur sticking out at grid OP 28.

One box of tiles was dumped - the material was largely collected the day before.

3 boxes were sent down to Murlo: one with bones; one with sherds, and one with an almost complete base (in 6 pieces) of a jar, some ries, and 2 pieces from a cooking-stand.

In order to define the bedrock in the N and E part of the trench a new cut was made to the E, measuring 5m.  W-E and 5.50m N-S, see plan, p. 236 .  A very thin layer had been taken off in 1969 when the trench was partially excavated.  The present "topsoil" therefore consisted of a very thin layer of humus and small stones.  This layer was taken off, and it became clear that the whole trench, except the SW corner, consisted of a strip of bedrock, broken up into an uneven surface.  The spur noticed in grid OP 28 forms part of a circle round gap in the bedrock, with a or somewhat oval (see not on "bedrock" p. 242 )

Diameter of ca 1m.  It has small opening towards column base alpha.  Nothing except earth, was found in this whole.

1/2 box of tiles was collected.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
