July 31, 1972

Work continued in Trenches 18 and 19, the north extensions.

T-19 J-M/33-36:

The workmen finished clearing the tile layer at the east end of the trench, leaving a pan tile projecting from the east wall and a few pithos fragments projecting from the north wall.  This entire trench has been cleared down to a hard yellow level, approx. 110 cm below topsoil.  Wall foundations of stone run along the west and south sides of the trench.

  • 1 cassette of tiles discarded

T-18 J-M/28-30:

One man cleared J-L/28, finding more reddish pottery (1 cassette) and stones, possibly a foundation wall, running N-S in the 28th meter.  This wall forms a right angle with teh stone foundations at the south end of the trench.  Another man continued excavating the heavy pottery layer in meter 30, K and L, producing 3 cassetti of pottery (one of coarser, gray stone-like ware; and 2 of fine reddish pottery, including bowls with cut-pressed tongues, female-figure handles, and a warrior head) and 1 cassette of tiles discarded. For finds, see JN II.
