This morning we started the removal of contexts 12 and 13, respectively a red deposit of collapsed, burnt clay and tiles and a dark black deposit on the south western part of the trench. A series of interesting vessels has been recovered in both the deposits, but an interesting evidence came up from the removal of context 13. A number of iron slags has been collected during the excavation, providing more than a hint on the presence of a metal workshop in this part of the complex. Moreover, the composition of the context, as well as of the new one freshly discovered underneath seems to confirm the hypothesis.
In the external area of the complex we almost finished the removal of context 5, and we exposed a series of aligned stones that could belong to a new (third) wall although the situation needs more clarification.
