Mesti work continued in meter K-L-M/69-70 and K-L-M/63-64. The architect spotted the rock pack in K-L/66-68, the photographer took photos of the pack as well. Meters K-L-M/63-64 were mestied to a depth od 134-137 cm bd. The soil was dark and moist and was less easy to remove than yeasterday. One latte box of pottery was recovered and very little tile. In meters K-L/69-70 the trench was brought down to a level of ca. 135 cm bd. The soil was just as yesterday with several areas of highly concentrates plaster and charcoal. Approximately 1/2 a latte of pottery was recovered and a few pieces of scattered, fragmentary tile. Finds of the morning are limited to pottery.

M/69-70 A small, 3cm cut was started across the trench. About 1/4 of a latte of pottery was recovered and bout 15 tile fragments. This cut is now at a depth of 141 cm bd.


The architect came up and drew several sections including : K-L(M)65-66, J-K/66-68, K-L-M/68-69, K-L/64-65. All but the last of these will be used to make the axiometric drawing encompassing the area K-L-M/68-69.

Work also continued in K-L/63-64 with mesties at ~135 cm bd. The soil at this depth is a very dark burn layer. The only find from this area was a very small piece of redware with stamped astericj rosettes. (#1)

The cut begun in M/69-70 was continued north toward meter L. A small amount of pottery and bone was recovered. This level is now ~145 cm bd.
