Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2006-8-12cVP after topsoil we begin a new feature, which will be an accumulation ad similar to the one we had in the rest of the squares last year. We give new feature number, f198. [Input file: Q812CVP.J / Q812CVP.-J]
2006-8-13cVP Digging the accumulation under topsoil f198 in all 4x4 meters. [Input file: Q812CVP.J / Q812CVP.-J]

2006-8-15cVP Digging the accumulation under topsoil f198 in all 4x4 meters. Approximately at 140 cm from the surface we have a broken piece of cooking pot, nothing important, but we make an item out of it just to teach the new staff members how to do relays. Near it we have a piece of basalt stone that we left in situ until they finish to dig that pick-layer. Later we found a piece of bronze pin. We decided to make them clean and clear the area, even if does not seem to be any significant change, just some ashes scattered. We will check again tomorrow morning, when we do the pictures. The soil is now harder to pick. [Input file: Q812CVP.J / Q812CVP.-J]
2006-8-16cVP After checking the soil (just some patches of isolated ashes) we begin to dig again the accumulation under topsoil f198 in all 4x4 meters. [Input file: Q812CVP.J / Q812CVP.-J]
2006-8-17cVP We draw sections N and E, and continue to dig the accumulation under topsoil. But instead of digging the 4x4 m complete we are now working in the western half in order to find more easily the next feature or the 2 meters deep. [Input file: Q817CVP.J / Q817CVP.-J]
2006-8-19cVP Today we consider finished the layer of accumulation under the topsoil and we give a new feature number, f203. This feature is not yet the big multi-layered one, is similar to the previous a little bit more compact and with more pebbles. We are nearing the multi-layered one (that is at a total elevations of 8995 in the section of MZ17), so this seems to be a mixture between the one above and the one below, that is why we are going to consider it as a kind of interface between both. We take elevations and pictures. Then we begin to dig the new feature until we reach the 2 meters deep to lay the first step. We reach the elevation at a small sounding and then we keep digging at the rest of the locus. Unfortunately we have not yet a marker at the bottom of the section(see note in mk) and we are using unreliable measurements. They give us a depth of 8980 that, if confirmed, would means that we have just over-dug some 20 cm. [Input file: Q817CVP.J / Q817CVP.-J]
2006-8-20cVP digging the interface accumulation f203. In this feature we reach the level of the 1st step (9000 more or less) so we stop and flatten the area, then putting the team to dig the N baulk. [Input file: Q817CVP.J / Q817CVP.-J]
2006-8-21cVP Digging the N baulk, stopping at the level of the step in the south part of k13. [Input file: Q817CVP.J / Q817CVP.-J]
2006-8-27mS continued removing the north baulk. Finished removing the east baulk down to the excavated level. We will now remove the rest of the dirt down to 9000. [Input file: Q824MS.J / Q824MS.-J]
