0237 - Day 3 / Dia 3





We are continuing to try to understand the damage caused by the ploughing and defining the preserved parts of the structure. Very few archaeological materials and bones are appearing. That could be a good sign with this degree of disturbance: maybe the structure is deep and the ploughing didn’t reach the main funerary deposits. But, today, a few teeth appear in the mixed deposits.

Continuamos a tentar entender a afectação provocada pela surriba e a definir as partes preservadas da estrutura. Muito pouco material arqueológico e ossos têm sido recolhidos. Isso pode ser um bom sinal, em face do grau de afectação: talvez a estrutura seja funda e a surriba não tenha atingido os principais depósitos funerários. Mas hoje apareceram alguns dentes nos depósitos revolvidos.
