Daily notes about recovery of elements 2008-08-13 jW After photography, v78, a crew from A20 began to excavate the topsoil, f134, with the large pick. After two pick runs, we began to excavate the naturual accumulation under the topsoil, f136. [Input: S813JW.j]
2008-08-14 jW We resumed excavation of natural accumulation, f136, with large picks. Except for a few isolated small stones, there was nothing of interest, which so far matches our hypothesis, that this locus overlays the western extension of escarpment, f74 - first discovered in k22 to the east - and that nothing else was ever built thereafter in that location. [Input: S814JW.j]
2008-08-16 jW We continued to excavate natural accumulation, f136, which has not changed since we removed the topsoil. The outside sections of the east and north baulks confirm that the accumulation is uniform to a depth of about two meters from the surface. [Input: S816JW.j]
2008-08-17 jW We continued to excavate natural accumulation, f136. At the end of the day we decided to cease excavations there and document the results. [Input: S817JW.j]
2008-08-18 jW Drew, w18, and photographed, v93 the north baulk. Drew, w19, and photographed, v94, the east baulk in preparation for removal. [Input: S818JW.j]
2008-08-21 jW Removed the north baulk, which was treated as volumetric material, f162, since the stratigraphy had already been documented by drawing and photography as topsoil and a single accumulation under it. [Input: S821JW.j]
2008-08-23 jW Removed the volumetric material in the east baulk, f162. [Input: S824JW.j]
2008-08-25 lH We cut its northeastern corner in about 50 cm to the west, and 50 cm to the south. Removing this corner was in order to better view from the panorama which is to the south of J5. That coner used to stand against the stone installation in k23, so it was impossible to see the whole structure without removing it. [Input: S825LH1.j]
2008-08-26 lH We extended the borders of the triangle at the northeastern corner, f167, about 1 m to the west and 2 to the south. This triangle dimensions which we started to remove yesterday was 50 cm to the west and 50 cm to the south originally. Removing this corner was in order to better view from the panorama which is to the south of J5. That coner used to stand against the stone installation in k23, so it was impossible to see the whole structure without removing it. [Input: S826LH.j]
2008-08-27 lH We finished removing the volumetric material, f167, from the northeast corner of this locus. [Input: S827LH.j]
