Although the skies glowered all day, to our collective surprise it did not rain and was, in fact, the perfect day for digging. Our effort was concentrated on the northern half of the trench, where a building is located.
The walls are cleaning up very nicely. Also, now that we have taken off some of the ploughed out rubble, you can also now see the tumble that has fallen off the walls. From what we can tell so far the building does not appear to be very high status as there is no evidence for a tiled roof, plastered walls or a tessellated floor. As well as lots of wall cleaning, we also had the opportunity to lift the nearly complete vessel that was uncovered during machining on the first day along the northern baulk outside of the building. From a quick, initial look the vessel seems to be a large white ware storage jar.
