Description/Count
Description 2006-8-12vVE At the western edge of k2 starts the old trench in B6, excavated by a German team from Tuebingen University. The trench runs from West to East but has a different orientation than the J3 grid. As the trench progresses East it also runs more to the North. The baulk walls have in some places caved in slightly, but are generally in reasonable condition. It now has approximately the following dimensions: 260 x 880 cm. [Input file: Q812VE2.J / Q812VE2.-J]
2006-9-19eI W-half of German Trench(BA) and expected location of second apron. [Input file: Q918EI4.J / Q918EI4.-J]

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2006-8-12vVE Today a picture, v501, was taken of this area and of the state of preservation of the German trench in B6. Then a lot of backfill was excavated, the sherds collected and counted: three base sherds, 5 rims and 53 body sherds had been found. Not all dirt could be removed but this will be completed tomorrow morning. [Input file: Q812VE2.J / Q812VE2.-J]
2006-8-13vVE We cleaned the South section of the German trench B6 by cutting it back approximately 5 cm. The deposit that was removed in this proces was defined as f512. Then we proceeded to excavate the Northwestern corner of k2 ( f514 and f513) and just to the west of German trench B6 ( f515 and f516). These areas were excavated in order to overlay the orientation of our grid on the B6 trench. However, because our surveyor, bP could not yet survey the markers for k2 that are missing (ie. the Eastern markers and those markers that define the baulks) we proceeded very cautiously. [Input file: Q813VE.J / Q813VE.-J]
2006-8-14vVE Feature f513 and f516 were excavated to the level of the German trench B6 and these features were then closed. f518 is the top soil of the part of k2 that lies South of trench B6. f518 was removed today. [Input file: Q814VE.J / Q814VE.-J]
2006-8-15vVE We started to excavate the natural accumulation f522 in the southern half of k2. We closed it after excavating several (big) pick runs in this feature. f533 is the natural accumulation that lies under f522 and is a continuation of this feature. f533 was not excavated today. Features f524 and f531 were assigned to stones that had fallen down northwards (perhaps recently) from the second apron f532. [Input file: Q815VE.J / Q815VE.-J]
2006-8-16vVE Excavation continued in f533 where we reached the elevation of the top of the stones of the second apron. A new feature will be assigned to these deposits tomorrow. f535 was started in the northern part: both the bottom of the German trench B6 in BA and the bottom of f513. [Input file: Q816VE.J / Q816VE.-J]
2006-8-17vVE We continued to excavate the deposit that lie south of f532 and cover it. By accident this area was assigned f535 today, but f535 was the deposit to the north of f532. Therefore the q-lot q526 was reassigned to f557. We further uncovered the very large boulder f543 and relayed it. [Input file: Q817VE.J / Q817VE.-J]
2006-8-19vVE We excavated f557 to further expose f532. Several lines of stones have now been uncovered but the expected steps are not present. Instead of the steps, a slightly sloping surface of boulders became visible. The downward slope of these stones is also not nearly as steep as we expected. At the bottom of f557 we found a natural compacted floor surface f566. [Input file: Q819VE1.J / Q819VE1.-J]
2006-8-22vVE A small remainder of f535 (bottom of the german trench BA) was excavated. The correct marker points defining the borders of k2 had not been known for a long time and therefore this small area of f535 remained in the NE corner of k1. [Input file: Q822VE.J / Q822VE.-J]
