074 - Day four


 

Today we continued the excavation of ditch 7 and start cleaning one of the new open areas. There, some large circular structures (visible in the geophysics) were detected. They reveal the presence of a large quantity of stones to be defined. Near to one of these structures, part of a bell beaker pot (the one of the rim presented before) was detected broken in situ. This is showing that, even with the intensive plough of 1996, there are some contexts preserved between the ploughing outside negative structures. This is a promising area to understand the late Perdigões, namely the bell beaker contexts.
