2015 Field Season Day 10

Grid 16 not only fine grided today (broke a surface down into 1 x 1 meter areas for excavation) but also excavated almost 20 postholes, as well as a fire box and several small pits, cut into the plaster surface of a courtyard.

After exposing the full extent of the floor and carefully excavating the postholes and pits, it was time to photograph the floor, flot it (send in sediment samples for archaeobotanists to examine) and then excavate it.
