The stone packing in M, N-80-82 continued to be cleaned down with hammer and mestaline.

Meters R,S,T-73-65 were mapped out and piccetti set in place.  The topsoil was removed over this whole area, bringing the trench to a depth of approximately 10 cm.  Generally, the topsoil was dark and rooty.  A new cut to approximately 20 cm was begun in RST-73 and also in meters R,S,T-68, 69.  The soil of this cut was a generally light brown-red with specks of light plaster and carbonized wood.  The tile layer in M.N,O-77-79 at approximately 80 cm continued to be drawn and was completed.




The stone packing in M,N,O-80-82 at c. 60 cm continued to be cleaned down.

The 30 cm cut in R,S,T-68 was continued to the west.  The soil remained red-brown with carbonized wood and specks of plaster.  Ivory was detected early and the soil was carefully and slowly checked in the wheelbarrow.  Bronze flecks were also found.
