Sunday, September 19, 1926 (continued)

(1) G 7000 X (continued)
No. 1050:
(b) the lower mass of copper carbonate, the lesser of the two main contiguous deposits. [ILLUSTRATION] See B6025, B6047, A4194. Nos. 1, 2, 3 which have the appearance of being chisels are light masses of carbonate of copper. No. (4) has a heavy solid copper core and is a punch of the form of No. 564. [ILLUSTRATION]. The surface is uneven (corroded) and the carbonate lies in layers [ILLUSTRATION]. Apparently the carbonate formed in layers inside at the surface of the copper and each new layer pushed the older formation outwards. Perhaps all this carbonate (a) and (b) comes from the one implement. This implement lay originally about 15 cm higher on the north edge of 1047 and has rolled or slipped down to its present position.
(c) removed fragments of carbonate lying on 1047(211).

No. 1047: See A4193
(209)-(212) potsherds as before loaded with wood, pottery decay, copper (see 1058(c)).
