0136 – “Post scriptum”

We came back to Perdigões for a week to try to finish the section in ditch 7 and the excavation of pit 50.

And the section in ditch 7 finally reached the bottom: 2,9 / 3 m deep.


 
As to pit 50, things are more complicated.
 
The pit is getting larger and deeper than expected and its filling is becoming complex, with a small firing structure inside and accumulations of stones and depositions of faunal bones, namely a pig head and a large toothless mandible of a large mammal.  We will not finish it now, I belive.
