A.M.

A cut was completed in D-E/68-70 to a depth of ca. 65-75cm.  The soil was dark brown in color with heavy concentrations of disintegrated yellow plaster and carbon chunks.  One quarter cassetta of worn tile and a few pieces of coarse pottery were found in the cut.  A cut was then begun in D-E/68-70 to a depth of ca. 85-90cm.  Beginning a a depth of ca. 75 cm, the soil became light brown in color and contained small pockets of yellow clay.  No tile or pottery was found in the light brown soil.

The floor of the trench in meters G-H/68-70 was cleaned down to a uniform level of ca. 100-110 cm.  The soil was dark brown in color and contained many small rocks.

One cassetta of tile and one box of mixed pottery and bone were discovered at the base of the cut.

The bulk between meters H/I-68-70 was shaved down for sharper definition.  The washout from the bulks of meters I-J/68-70 was removed, restoring the trench floor in these meters to their previously excavated 1985 level of ca. 40cm.  One half cassetta of small pieces of worn tile were discovered in the washout soil.

Work was also begun in shaving the west bulk of the trench in meters D-L/68 in preparation for a section drawing.  One half cassetta of tile was removed from the bulk during cleaning.
