Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2006-8-19cVP We are just digging the Eastern half of the loci, as we are going to try to save effort and our primary goal here is to reach the upper stones of the terrace wall. Depending of the results we will see if we open the rest of the locus or not. We dug the topsoil and the beginning of the accumulation under it. [Input file: Q817CVP.J / Q817CVP.-J]
2006-8-20cVP We are digging the accumulation under the topsoil, f204. It is quite soft and brown. [Input file: Q817CVP.J / Q817CVP.-J]
2006-8-22cVP Finished the accumulation under topsoil and appearing the 'interface' layer, called here f206 but the same thing as f203. Excavated after photographed. [Input file: Q817CVP.J / Q817CVP.-J]
2006-8-23cVP Under f206 we find the beginning of the deep multi-layered feature. It is cut in the middle of our excavation trench by two lines running more or less E-W, that seems to pertain to a long hole. The northern line seems to be following in some way the outer face of the upper part of the terrace wall. Inside, the soil is brown and quite different of the one in the multi-layered feature. This is made of soil dark red and gritty, quite hard, sandy at times, with patches of pebbles at others, and also patches of brown bricky soil. At the beginning of the feature we have one of this patches of pebbles, so big and deep that we decided to give it another feature number. Cleaned and made photo. Then we dig first the patch of grit f210, then the filling f211 of the hole f213, and later the upper part of both f209 and f212. [Input file: Q817CVP.J / Q817CVP.-J]
2006-8-24mS cVP spent a large part of the day working the stones and excavating the trench f213. This was to follow the stones that appeared to be a continuation of the wall f72 and may be the turn or bend to the north. It appears that this indeed is the case. We will cease excavation here for the moment and will draw the sections tomorrow. [Input file: Q824MS.J / Q824MS.-J]
2006-8-27mS began removing the east baulk which separates this locus from the section of wall f72, a3, that went into the baulk. We will remove the baulk until the top of the wall. [Input file: Q824MS.J / Q824MS.-J]
2006-8-28mS Continued removing the east baulk adjoining the wall. This is slow work because there is a big drop to the east. It should be completed tomorrow. [Input file: Q824MS.J / Q824MS.-J]
2006-9-2mS Resumed excavation in two quadrants here, NW and SE. The NW quadrant is a new excavation, again following the wall, f72. The SE quadrant is finishing up from last week, bringing the level down to about half a meter below the top of the wall. [Input file: Q902MS.J / Q902MS.-J]
2006-9-3mS brought the SW quadrant down to about 30 cm below the top of the wall and can see the curve well. Continue to excavate in the NW quadrant and should get to the level of the wall tomorrow. We drew the W half of the N section prior to tearing down the baulk. [Input file: Q902MS.J / Q902MS.-J]
2006-9-4mS continuing to go down to the level of the wall in the NW quadrant. Reached the trench f213 and fill f211 which cuts f209 and which runs along the face of the wall f72. We seem to be reaching the top of the stones and the wall does not seem to curve as strongly as it first appeared when uncovered in the eastern section of this locus. We will clean well in the morning and then see. [Input file: Q902MS.J / Q902MS.-J]
2006-9-5mS continued working in the NW quadrant and it seems as though the wall f72 does not turn but continues in more a soft curve in the same way it has been running. The orginal view of the curve was just because we had seen it only in a two square meter area and it was a limited view. The stones seem to continue to the west. We have also brought most of the north baulk down to this level and the stones are consistent with the wall continuing to the west. We have found small patches of burnt area along the top of the wall area but these are just small lenses. [Input file: Q902MS.J / Q902MS.-J]
