Daily notes about recovery of elements 2001-06-09 fAB Today is the first day of excavation and we temporarily strung this square. The surveyor will be available tomorrow morning. [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-06-10 lR We opened up k2 today. The workmen have leveled off the NE section since the Tell has a slope in order to eventually make the whole locus one level. We did not collect the pottery from the first 10-15cm (topsoil) since it would most likely be out of context. [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-06-11 lR Continued removing ^ts on the NE side & area is still not leveled. A small pit was identified on the NE corner on the North baulk & was assigned f13- it later became apparent that it was an animal hole; a small amount of pottery was collected. [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-06-12 lR Today we continued to remove the topsoil and found brickfall f15 underneath. One big pick run was done; then we stopped for the day in this locus. [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-06-25 lR In k2 we cut a trench running North-South in the middle of the locus to determine the depth of the brickfall. The trench was 35cm below the rest of the locus on the East and West sides when ashy pockets started appearing. This could be the end of the brickfall with an ashy accumulation or just ashy pockets in the ^bf and the ^bf continues down. We stopped at this level and excavated the remainder of the locus. We did make the trench a separate locus k102 [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-06-26 lR we are removing the west baulk [Input: L630TR.j]
2001-07-25 lR In k2 we are excavating the whole locus West of f132. This area contains large amounts of pottery in comparison to k6,k5,and k1, which is within a brown-gray matrix and is most likely the same pit as k6. The sherds contained no pattern and were not positioned in a way to suggest that it was a pavement or floor. Currently we are digging in f161 interface level with plans to change the feature tomorrow due to the pottery change. These layers are probably related to the sherd layers seen in the North section. [Input: L728LR.j]
2001-07-26 lR In k2, yesterday at the end of the day we defined the area with the large amount of pottery as a separate pit, a kind of "sherd pit" since a large amount of compacted pottery was isolated in that area. Currently this pit is located within the southwest corner but yesterday it extended throughout the locus thus the pottery from this feature is mixed with the feature above it. The sherd pit is f170 and was completely excavated today. We made a new feature for the accumulation around this pit and it is most likely the same matrix as the fill on top. This pit, although smaller, contained more sherds than the sherd pit in k6. [Input: L728LR.j]
2001-07-29 lR In k2 we cleaned all the sections to see the pit fill which shows a series of layers of gray f171, a sterile silty fine powder lense, and granular sandy pink lense with pottery and pebbles which reminds me of material which has been exposed to water for long periods of time where the heavier material, pebbles pottery and granular material sinks to the bottom and the silty fine powder lense forms at the top.
